1. Don't let a frosty windshield make you late to work. Try dousing your windshield with cold water instead of pulling out that old scraper. You will be on your way a lot faster-- just don't use hot water, or you can add a cracked windshield to your list of cold-weather woes.
2. Keep your pipes happy. To prevent your pipes from freezing overnight, let water trickle from the highest faucet in your house. The water should be about the size of the tip of a pen. Open the cabinet doors under your kitchen and bathroom sinks to let warm air in. Make sure you remove poisonous cleaners if you have children.
3. Use your ceiling fan in a new way. Set your fan on a low setting in a clockwise direction to bring warm air down into the room.
