MidAmerican offers tips to save money on heating bill

MidAmerican Energy has some tips for homeowners trying to save money on their heating bill this winter:

  • Check the filter on your furnace. A backwards or dirty filter can cost you money, and you won't get as much heat in your home.
  • Make sure your water pipes are covered in foam tubing. Foam tubing can be found at stores for under $10.
  • Check windows and doors for any possible air leaks that can be fixed.
  • Replace an old thermostat with a new programmable one.
