Today we hear a lot about strategies to reduce the rate we pay for our heating fuel. I believe the “lowest hanging fruit” is available to most by lowering usage!

Let’s focus on reducing consumption of natural gas in our homes. Think critically about how natural gas is consumed in your home. Become “aware” of all the devices in your home that use natural gas.

  1. Central heating: one or more furnaces or boilers.
  2. Porch heaters.
  3. Garage Heaters.
  4. Gas Fireplaces.
  5. Stoves or ovens that are fueled by natural gas.
  6. Water heater.
  7. Clothes Dryer.
  8. General recommendations.
