Posted By admin On August 9, 2009 @ 9:57 pm In Green Building,Renewable Energy | No Comments
I know! It’s August! Why in the name of all that’s green are we posting an article about heating your home? Well, because up north, where we are—and in many places in the world—at some point in the next few weeks we could find ourselves reaching for the thermostat. Cold weather’s coming. And now is a great time for a reminder on best home heating practices for those of us who like to be environmentally (and economically) sensitive.
WARNING – IF YOU ARE ELDERLY OR INFIRM, TRY TO KEEP YOUR ROOM TEMPERATURES NO LOWER THAN 65°F, AND YOUR LIVING ROOM AND BATHROOM AT ABOUT 70°F.
Heating and cooling account for about 56% of the energy use in a typical home.
