Living In A Green Home
How to conserve heat and cold air at home
You can start by starting to check were cold air is seeping into your house. Try to cover all those places close of all rooms you do not use such as the guest room or something like that. If you can try not to let your heat run through that room and just let the heat spread out through the rest of the house you use. Try putting a towel under your door you know on that little space that is not covered under your door. Lots and lots of heat can escape from that space. Now your cold air I heard that trees give a lot of shade and could cool you of better. There is a lot of cool air in a shade. So maybe you could get a tree and get it to shade up your house from the suns rays, I am pretty sure that that can cool your house down a lot. You should really try to keep cool in the summer so try to eat fresh food. Do not turn on your stove or anything that produces heat, that can waste a lot of your money and your cool air.
Economical Ways To Heat Your Home
Did you know that the U.S is using 78 million dollars each year on electricity? Well, some ways to heat your home, and help lower that 78Million are quite simple. During spring and fall, simply turn off your heater unless the temperature gets below freezing, this will allow us to save much more money, and in places like California, it doesn't get below freezing. If you are complaining it's too cold, go put on a sweater! Even though it might seem cold, an electric blanket can cost less than heating your room.
Resources That Produce Energy
You may think that our resources for example corn, are only used as food. Actually, no there is a way to use corn to produce energy. In the U.S the university of Iowa is currently working on it. We are using corn to produce energy, But there is a little debate with farmers over, ENERGY or FOOD. If this doesn't work out there's always another way to have heat in your homes during this time. Most families use heaters, which are more pollution to our economy. It is a fact that wood burning for heat, is less pollution than using heaters. If you live somewhere where wood is plentiful, use the wood for heat, I would suggest NOT turning on the heater when the fireplace is on, you will pollute the air, again,try and use wood for heating, if it does get to cold, put on a sweater,scarf, etc.
