Lower your gas costs and improve operations at your business

From quick-and-easy changes to big energy-saving projects, cutting back on gas consumption benefits everyone.

Make an immediate difference in your energy costs with these easy changes:

  • Turn off equipment when not in use.
  • Verify that the timed settings on your heating and air conditioning system match when your building is in use.
  • Lower the thermostat on your furnace by one degree and save up to 3% in energy usage.
  • Close curtains, shades and blinds at night, on weekends, and all times when your building is unoccupied.

Use this checklist when planning for upgrades:

  • Add weather stripping, caulking or foam insulation around windows and doors to help reduce drafts.
  • Caulk ducts, plumbing openings, recessed lighting fixtures and other spaces that leak air into walls, floors and ceilings.
  • Upgrade to products with the ENERGY STAR® label.
  • Ensure that the furnace damper works correctly to avoid heating cold, outside air.

Start budgeting for energy-saving upgrades:

  • Hire a contractor to check your central heating and cooling ducts for leaks. Sealing and insulating air ducts can help improve system efficiency by up to 20%.
  • Replace windows with high-efficiency ENERGY STAR windows. Replacing windows can help reduce your heating and cooling costs by up to 15%.
  • Fix or upgrade defective plumbing, air ducts and pipes.
