  • It’s winter in Kentucky. This is a great time of year to turn up the heat and snuggle down by a warm fire in the fireplace, watch television or read a book. But, this can be costly.

    Heat-ing and cooling accounts for more than 50 percent of the energy usage in a typical U.S. home, making it the largest energy expense for most homes.

    It is no secret that energy usage often peaks in the winter with the use of more lighting and heat. Here are a few ways to offset excessive energy usage and electric or gas bills.
