U.S. households account for 17 percent of total greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Home heating accounts for the biggest portion of household utility bills, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA). Turn your thermostat back 10 to 15 percent for eight hours a day. Not only will you save energy, but it can cut heating bills by as much as 10 percent.
