Tips to keep those heating bills down

Cold temperatures are already getting a lot of people thinking about keeping down heating costs this Winter. Here's a few tips on saving. 

 
Keep your thermostat a little cooler than normal, especially at night. You should also cover drafty doors and windows, change your furnace filters and weather-strip leaky areas.
 
A WE Energies spokesperson says there's another way to manage those costs. 
 
"We also have a budget bill option where people can have their average energy use spread out over the course of 12 months so that you don't have those peaks and valleys," says spokesperson Jess.
 

You can expect to pay another few dollars a month starting in January. WE Energies is hiking its rates to pay for system upgrades.
