MEDFORD - As temperatures on Long Island dip to single digits, there are ways Long Island residents can save on their energy bills.

Christina Taylor and her husband Jason, of Medford, are having National Grid and a contractor look at their home to check for ways to reduce their energy use and save money, especially on frigid days.

Putting weather stripping on windows and doors allows homeowners to stop heat from leaking out. National Grid is offering the Enhanced Home Sealing Incentives Program that, for about $50, gets a contractor into your home who will check for leaks and suggest ways to make the home more energy efficient.
