February Really Was Cold: Keep Warm Without Big Bills

February 2011 was one of the coldest on record for Western Washington. Weatherizing your home can help keep your energy bills low even when the temperatures drop.

This just in from the National Weather Service: “February 2011 will go down as one of the top ten coldest Februaries for most of Western Washington. This is in contrast to February 2010, which was one of the top ten warmest.”

Cold weather can drive up the cost to keep your home warm. Taking steps to weatherize your home can save you money and make your home more comfortable when the temperatures drop.

Seattle City Light can help, starting with discounted home energy audits that will identify the best opportunities for reducing the energy use of your home.
