How should people conserve energy as the weather cools?

“Weather-proofing the windows is the most important thing. They can also wear more clothes instead of turning the heat up. Dress for the weather inside and outside.”
“Only turn on the heater when you know someone is going to be there. Turn it off when you leave, and on when you get home.”
“Just turn their furnaces down a little bit and bundle up a little more.”
“Don’t heat more space than you need. And if your dryer is near your living space, you can run it at night to take the chill off.”
