Four tips to reduce your bill this winter

You can help make Québec greener, even in winter! Discover four easy ways to cut down on the heating of spaces and water so you can save electricity and money during the coldest months of the year.

1. Caulk your windows

Did you know that warm air leaks and cold air infiltration account for up to 25% of a home’s heat loss? Before heating season arrives, you can inspect your home and do some maintenance work to limit air leaks.

A simple visual check will show you if it’s time to carry out a few minor repairs that could lead to major savings!

2. Heat efficiently

Have you considered installing a smart thermostat or turning down the thermostat by 1°C?

Heating efficiently in the fall and winter is easier than you think!

4. Use hot water wisely

Using hot water wisely is key to saving electricity. Heating water is a home’s second largest source of energy consumption. When the weather gets colder, a long hot bath can feel tempting.

Instead, opt for short showers using a reduced-flow showerhead and adopt the right habits in the kitchen and laundry rooms, too.
