Greenify for the Winter Ahead

October 30, 2008

Now that the hot days of summer are past, its time to think about taking care of a few last minute household duties before the cold weather sets in and you want to stay inside to hide.  A good “once over” can Greenify the, home, business, and wallet all at the same time, going into the colder months. 

When was the last time you checked the filters on the furnace?  Dirty filters need to be changed once per month, otherwise they interfere with air flow and cause the furnace to work harder.  Better yet, switch to a permanent filter which will save on effort as well as expense.  Less in the dumpsters is a sign that greenification is at work.

And you know how your car gets a periodic tune-up?  Your furnace needs one, too.  Keeping the furnace clean, lubricated, and operating properly can save you up to 5% per month.  The best news is that many utility companies have repairmen that do such tune-ups for free, but you do have to get in line early because they often get backed up.

Mind that thermostat, too.  For every degree you lower it, you stand to save 1-to-3 percent on your heating bill.

Next check your caulking and weather-stripping.   Simple leaks can suck the life out of energy savings, by draining away 5 to 30%.  It pays to check for leaks around corners, chimneys, where pipes and wires go into the building.  You can do this easily using an incense stick: run a lit stick along the seams and see if the smoke line wavers.  If it does, you could be saving energy and money.

And here’s an old-fashioned idea whose time may come again in this economy: wear a sweater.  Roughly speaking, a light, long sleeved sweater is worth 2 degrees added warmth.  A heavier sweater could add as much as 4 more degrees in warmth.  Which means going green may give you a healthy glow in your pocketbook, too.

Klopp confessed after his side were knocked out of the Carabao Cup that he was ‘sick’ of the goals they had been conceding. In nine games so far, they have only recorded two clean sheets. Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp insists it is not time to panic after defensive woes: 'I can cool the situation down'
