If you have a ceiling fan, you can circulate warm air down to the floor level. This is because heat rises naturally, and your ceiling fan runs counter-clockwise, so when it goes clockwise, it pushes the warm air down, which in turn warms up the room. This is a cheap and effective way to avoid turning your thermostat up.

Do you live in a freezing place and often have trouble getting your car out of the snow when you want to leave in the morning? Well, you should try parking your car facing east because when exposed to sunlight, a lot of the snow on your windshield will melt. This will save you a lot of energy and time.

This is a problem that you do not notice at first, but fogged headlights can be very dangerous. In order to improve the efficiency of your headlights, it is advisable to polish them with toothpaste. That way they will be less fogged when you drive in the snow at night.
