Energy Conservation in the Home

Dear Shell,

Do you turn down your thermostat at night in order to save energy while the household is sleeping?

Dear Jessica,

It's a great idea and its also one of the best energy savers; however, please think twice before you defeat its purpose by leaving your bedroom window wide open. When you leave the window wide open it cools the whole house down. You will then put more demand on your furnace when you turn the thermostat up in the morning thereby raising your energy costs.

It's Just That Easy!
