Albany--Falling temperatures in South Georgia will mean a rise in your electric bills. Albany Water Gas and Light wants to remind you to conserve energy when heating your home during this colder weather.

Every degree warmer you set your thermostat will cost you about five-percent more on your utility bill. Lorie Farkas with Water Gas and Light has some tips to keep you warm and your heating bill low.

"It's real important to keep it at sixty eight, and remember that every peace of clothing you put on over what you are wearing, whether its night clothes or street clothes you raise your body temperature five degrees" said Lorie Farkas with Albany Water Gas and Light. 

Remember it's important to make sure you know how to operate space heaters properly if you use one, and don't leave it running if you leave your home.
