Cheap Ways to Heat Your Home

Punxsutawney Phil the groundhog may soon be proclaiming that spring isn't far away, but the huge winter blizzards paralyzing much of the United States beg to differ.

Even with most of the country buried in snow and temperatures hovering around freezing, you can still reduce your energy consumption and keep your home warm.
