Lower your heat, lower your costs

See how much you can save with a change in temperature

As heat rises, so will your energy costs. For every degree above 20°C (68°F) your heating costs will rise about 5%. If you're comfortable at cooler temperatures (especially if you're cooking or working around the house), turn down your thermostat and you'll be able to save.

Our winter home temperature reference guide:

  • Reading, or watching TV? Set your thermostat at 21ºC (70°F)

  • Cooking or working around the house? You may be comfortable at 18ºC (64°F).

  • Going to sleep? Set your thermostat for 16ºC (61°F) as you turn in for the night.
