Fall Tips and Online Energy Calculator

Every fall, Waupun Utilities recommends that customers:

  • Open shades or blinds during the day to let in the sun’s heat.
  • Look for air leaks, which can add as much as 10 percent to a household’s monthly energy bill. Caulking and weather-stripping doors and windows prevents heat from escaping.
  • Make sure furniture and curtains aren’t blocking heating vents.
  • Have the home’s heating system serviced and change filters monthly when in use.
  • Turn down the thermostat to 68 degrees or lower, especially at night or when no one is home.

Waupun Utilities also offers an online tool that can show customers how various changes – from changing a light bulb to installing a new appliance – can have a lasting impact.

Home Energy Suite is a free resource that provides useful details about customers’ energy bills and generates tailored money-saving recommendations within minutes. Complete a simple home profile by answering questions such as the approximate age of the home, number of occupants and type of heating to determine simple next steps.
