Ways to Save Energy #3

Here are some ways to save energy:

  • Use safety plugs on unused outlets. These are prime places for outside air to leak into your home

  • Hire an enviromental consultant to asses your residence for hazards.

  • If your home has a large, single-paned picture window, use heavy draperies during the winter to help hold back cold air.

  • Reflective window film can help reduce heat gain during the summer, and it will keep furniture and carpert from fading.

  • Check window panes to see if they have new glaze. If the glass the loose, replace the putty holding the pane in place.

  • If drafts sneak in under exterior doors, replace the threshold. 2008.htm
