Bobbi PetersonFall and winter are perfect times to cozy up and enjoy some indoor fun — Netflix binge-watching, catching up on the latest book club pick, or playing board games with the family. It’s all a good time, as long as your home is warm enough to enjoy it.

Many people struggle with worries over their environmental impact and how to balance that with enough fuel to keep their homes warm.

Cleaner sources of energy are one answer — they keep your home warm throughout the fall and winter, have less of an environmental impact, and are cheaper for homeowners.

Strategies for a Cleaner, Warmer Home

There are some strategies that can help you save energy during these months without overtaxing your heating system. Many are free — and others are cheap — and they can be used every day to decrease your monthly energy bills and your environmental footprint.

Here are some ways to keep your home warmer while using cleaner energy:

1. Rely on the Sun

Open the blinds or shutters to any south-facing windows during the day. The sun can naturally heat parts of your home.
