Plumas-Sierra REC has some tips to help you "button-up" those energy leaks and put money back in your pocket[ Block openings at bottom of doors to prevent drafts. Plug air leaks in basement, attic and fireplace. install storm windows or clear polyurethane plastic over single-pane glass. You can re- duce heat loss by 50%, and lower your heating bills by 10%. Use curtains and shades effi- ciently. Open shades during warm sunny days to let the heat in, and close them again at night. Seal leaks in pipes and ducts. Leaking faucets should be re- paired promptly, especially hot water pipes. Insulate hot water pipes. Locate washer near water heater to minimize heat loss through pipes. Install an insulation "blanket" around your water heater if you have an inadequately insulated model. Always follow manufacturers recommendations and safety instructions before installing a "blanket."
