  • Program your thermostat: Save up to 15 per cent1 on your home heating costs by programming your thermostat to 17° C when you’re out or asleep, and no higher than 20° C when you’re home and awake.
  • Draftproof your home: Prevent heat from escaping and improve the comfort of your home by caulking windows, weatherstripping doors and sealing gaps and cracks in exterior walls.
  • Wash laundry in cold water and take shorter showers: Washing your clothes in cold water will help you save on water heating costs. And by shortening your showers by two minutes, you can save even more—between $69 and $96 a year on average.
  • Use zone heating: Heat just the area you’re in by using your fireplace or baseboard heaters, and turn off or lower heating in unoccupied rooms. That way you only pay for what you actually use.
