Make sure all baseboard heaters or radiators are clear of furniture so that heat can circulate freely.
Turn the heat down when you go to bed at night.
Turn the heat down when you leave for the day or go on a trip.
Remember to clean your baseboard heater or radiator regularly. Dirt can interfere with heating efficiency.
Keep doors and windows closed when the heat is turned on to keep the heat inside.
If you feel cold, put on a wool sweater or sit under a blanket instead of turning up the heat.
On a sunny winter day, open your blinds and curtains to let sunlight in to help warm up the room.

After a shower, be mindful when opening the bathroom window to ‘unfog’ the mirror -- Close the bathroom door to limit the amount of heat loss. Remember to close the window again when the steam has evaporated.
