What can you do?
Close blinds to keep the heat out during the summer months and the cold out during winter months.
Open blinds during the winter months to let the sun shine through the window to warm the interior space.
Close doors during non-working hours in winter months to keep cold drafts from migrating through the space.
Close doors during non-working hours to keep the warm areas from warming up the cooled spaces.
Keep windows closed at all times.
Make sure heating and cooling vents are not blocked.
