CNN -- Struggling to stay warm with chilly fall nights?
The Consumer Energy Alliance has some tips to keep the heat, and money, in your home.
You can save ten percent a year on energy bills by turning your thermostat down 10 to 15 degrees for eight hours -- when you're sleeping or not home.
Seal drafty windows, and seal or caulk any air leaks around pipes and unfinished spaces.
Replace air and furnace filters as needed.
And open your curtains to south-facing windows during the day to allow sunlight to heat your home.
