  • Check and clean your furnace filter once a month and replace it every three months.

  • Wrap your water heater with an insulation blanket.

  • Seal leaks around doors, windows and other openings, such as pipes or ducts, with caulking or weather-stripping. Replace broken or cracked glass and consider installing storm windows.

  • Never use range-top burners or ovens for home-heating purposes. Continuous burning can lead to the formation of carbon monoxide and fire hazards.

Energy Assistance for those in need is based on family size, income and type of fuel used for heating. For information on the office that serves Maryland customers call Washington Gas at (703)750-1000.
