My dad has just put together a new blog called “Practical Efficiency”, if you’re looking for tips on energy management and other green-friendly advice, this site will be full of them.
Here’s a clip from a recent post called “Seal & Insulate: Stop the Heat and Save Money”, which gives some good tips on keeping your home warm without having to run the heater. This winter, we decided to turn our heater off and throw a sweater on while we’re around the house. I’ll admit that when we first wake up in the morning, it’s nice to have a small blast of heat to warm up, but only that one time. Outside of that, we just keep our socks and sweaters on or throw a blanket over our laps on the sofa.
It’s amazing how much money people will spend just to be able to walk around the house barefoot with some shorts on.
