HOT IDEAS ISSUED FROM BG&E TO KEEP YOU WARM THIS WINTER

 HOT IDEAS ISSUED FROM BG&E TO KEEP YOU WARM THIS WINTER
 BALTIMORE, Nov. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- With the cold weather here,


Baltimore Gas & Electric Company offers its customers some tips that they can take advantage of to help reduce energy costs.
 They are:
 -- Winterize your home. Caulk or weatherstrip cracks around the edges of doors and windows and use clear plastic window insulation kits to keep heat from escaping. Insulate your attic as well as your hot water heater. Check your heating system frequently and clean or replace furnace filters once a month.
 -- Control your thermostat and use the warm room concept. Keep one room warm with an electric space heater, while letting the rest of the house stay at a lower temperature. This saves heating energy and cuts costs. Every degree above 68 degrees Fahrenheit uses 3 percent more energy. A temperature of 68 degrees, or lower, can be comfortable unless there is a sick or elderly person or an infant in the home. Remember, space heaters are efficient only as a supplemental source, not a primary source of heat.
 -- Close doors to garages, attics and any other unheated areas.
 -- Close draperies at night and open during the day on the sunny side of your home to take advantage of the winter sun's warmth.
 -- Keep the fireplace damper closed when not in use.
 These and other energy-saving tips are available in a free brochure, "Energy and Money-Saving Tips." Call BG&E's Marketing and Energy Services Department at 1-800-786-2000 or stop by your local BG&E store for a copy.
