Saving energy means saving money.
Here are some tips that will help you do both:
1. Get attic insulation rated R-19 or higher and get $.35 per square foot kickback from Questar Gas and monthly savings from your heating bill.
2. Purchase a programmable thermostat. It will lower the temperature in your house while you’re gone and raise it again when you’re home, saving you money on your monthly bill.
3. New furnaces can be over 90% efficient. Replace your current furnace and get $300 back from Questar Gas. Change the furnace filter – changing the furnace filter regularly will help keep clean air flowing throughout your home. If the filter becomes dirty or clogged, it will restrict airflow and cause the furnace to stay on longer – using more fuel.
4. Keep vents and registers unobstructed – Move drapes, rugs and furniture away from heat registers and return-air vents. Free-flowing air through the furnace provides quick comfort for less money.
5. Reduce hot water usage – Take showers instead of baths to reduce hot water use. Fix leaky faucets and run clothes- and dishwashers with a full load. Install water-flow restrictors in showerheads and faucets. Restrictors can cut hot-water use without affecting comfort.

Home-Energy Audit Program:
1. Call 1-800-695-7375 to schedule a home-energy audit and for only $25 a Questar Gas technician will visit your home and give you energy-efficient items.
2. Follow through on any of the recommendations and get the $25 audit charge back as a credit on your gas bill and more monthly savings!
