When frigid temperatures cause a drastic increase in heating bills, it’s good to know that there are ways to cut energy costs without sacrificing comfort. Energy-saving tips and money-saving energy efficiency programs from Black Hills Energy are highlighted on National Cut Your Energy Costs Day, recognized annually on January 10.

Black Hills Energy has many suggestions for those who wish to save money this winter. The company maintains that an annual furnace inspection will ensure an efficient heating system and that keeping the house thermostat at 68 degrees will save a considerable amount in bills assuming health concerns aren’t a factor. Also, considering energy efficiency while replacing furnaces and home appliances can help cut energy bills without sacrificing comfort or functionality. Improving attic or top floor insulation can save up to 30 percent of energy costs and insulating the floor over unheated areas such as crawl spaces, basements, and garages can save about 8 percent of energy costs.

Black Hills Energy provides rebates and helps customers save energy as a value-added service. For a full list of the company’s cost-cutting tips, visit
