LOS ANGELES - Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) today issued tips to homeowners on ways to safely winterize their homes and to help save on energy costs.

During cold weather, it's possible to use three to seven times more natural gas than in summer months as your home heater responds to your thermostat settings and your water heater works harder to keep water hot. It is also important to do a safety check of your heating units before winter weather begins.

Home heating safety tips: Never store or use highly flammable products in the same room as any natural gas or heat-producing appliances. This includes gasoline, spray paints, foggers, varnish and other pressurized containers.

Never store ordinary combustibles such as rags, mops or paper on or near an appliance.

Never use your oven, range top or outdoor barbecue to heat your home. These appliances are not designed for this purpose.

Make sure your natural gas heater is vented.

If you suspect that you or someone else is suffering from carbon monoxide poisoning, call 911 immediately.

Save on energy costs with these simple steps:

Customers can save 10 to 15 percent on heating costs by lowering the temperature setting on their furnace three to five degrees.

Have air ducts tested. Leaky ducts can cost customers anywhere from 10 to 30 percent in heating and cooling costs.

Install caulking and weather-stripping around doors and windows. This can save about 10 to 15 percent in energy costs.

Clean or replace furnace filters.

Install a smart thermostat.

Install an energy efficient furnace.

SoCalGas also offers a Home Upgrade Program which takes a comprehensive, 'whole-house' approach to energy efficiency.
