Saving energy means saving money
Here are some tips that will help you do both!

    1. Get attic insulation rated R-19 or higher and get $.35 per square foot kickback from
       Questar Gas and monthly savings from your heating bill.
    2. Purchase a programmable thermostat. It will lower the temperature in your house while
       you’re gone and raise it again when you’re home, saving you money on your monthly
  3. New furnaces can be over 90% efficient. Replace your current furnace and get $300 back
     from Questar Gas. Change the furnace filter – changing the furnace filter regularly will
     help keep clean air flowing throughout your home. If the filter becomes dirty or clogged,
     it will restrict airflow and cause the furnace to stay on longer – using more fuel.
  4. Keep vents and registers unobstructed – Move drapes, rugs and furniture away from heat
     registers and return-air vents. Free-flowing air through the furnace provides quick
     comfort for less money.
  5. Reduce hot water usage – Take showers instead of baths to reduce hot water use. Fix
     leaky faucets and run clothes- and dishwashers with a full load. Install water-flow
     restrictors in showerheads and faucets. Restrictors can cut hot-water use without affecting
