Light up the night!
Use solar lighting if possible. Fluorescent light bulbs are another good option to save energy with outdoor lighting. You can utilize motion sensors so the lights will only turn on when someone is present. For example, instead of leaving a porch light turned on for hours, a sensor can automatically flip the light on when you arrive home after dark. http://ow.ly/i/2A8ce
As you transition from using the air conditioner to the heater you should consider the purchase of a new heating and cooling system if yours is 15 years or older.
Resist the urge to peek!
Avoid opening the oven door repeatedly to check on food while it’s cooking. Each time you open the door, the temperature can drop by 25 degrees, requiring additional energy to reheat the oven. Instead, turn on the interior light and look through the window of the oven door. http://ow.ly/i/2A8ao
