With cooler temperatures on the way, you might want to weatherize your house for winter this weekend. Black Hills Energy says you should drain and cover swap coolers, cover your water heater with a thermal jacket and put weather stripping on windows and doors. "These are all things that's an investment a homeowner will make but they last a long time," said Christopher Burke, Vice President of Operations for Black Hills Energy.
Black Hills Energy is reminding people to get ready for winter as it kicks off its annual weatherization program. In Southern Colorado, the energy company will help 30 low income families weatherize their homes for free.
Black Hills Energy says some other tips to reduce your energy bills include: replacing furnace filters, and installing energy efficient appliances and light bulbs.
