My Top 10 Ways To Help You Save Money On Your Utility Bills

10.  Turn down your thermostat. For every degree you lower your heat in the 60-degree to 70-degree range, you'll save up to 5 percent on heating costs. Wear warm clothing like a sweater and set your  to 68 degrees or lower during the day and evening, health permitting. 9.  Furnace maintenance/tune ups.  Now is also the time for a furnace "tune-up."
