Baby It's Cold Outside

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Palm Realty BK3273458

Boy has it been cold outside in Florida! Personally, I like the change in temperature, it mixes things up in a good way for me! I love opening my bedroom window, throwing another blanket on the bed and having the Yorkies keep me warm at night! However, the Orlanda Utilities Commission (OUC) has some good points to staying warm in the coming days.

Tips from OUC to stay warm, protect your home, and save energy:

  • Set your thermostat to 68 degrees. OUC says for each degree above 68, the heating portion of your bill will increase four to six percent.
  • Turn the heater down or off when no one is home.
  • Keep portable or space heaters at least three feet away from furniture, bedding, walls, clothing, and other flammable items.
  • Turn off and unplug electric blankets when not in use.
  • Never use your stove or oven to heat your home.
  • If temperatures drop below freezing, cover any exposed water pipes and leave pool pumps running.
  • Open drapes and blinds to let the sun's warmth in during the day, then close the blinds at night.
  • Check under doors and around windows for cool air coming in, then seal those areas.
  • Set a ceiling fan to run clockwise, which will force warm air towards the floor.

    Here's to enjoying the cool evenings...even in sunny Florida!

I'm not much for cold weather probably since I am a Texas 100% but knowing how to conserve energy and keep warm is a win win.
