Save money by dressing for the seasons.
It may seem obvious, but one of the simplest ways you can save on your energy usage is to dress for the seasons. Reach out for warm clothes before turning on the heat. Dressing in layers is a simple yet effective way to stay comfortable between seasons and save energy. Use blankets at home in winter, and wear slippers to avoid walking on cool floors, which will lower your body temperature and cause you to turn up the heating.
In summer, choose lightweight clothing made from breathable, natural fibres like cotton, linen, and bamboo. Wear loose, flowing clothes that allow air to circulate around your body, helping you feel cooler. Light-coloured clothing can help reflect the sun’s rays and banish perspiration.
