News : Green Tips from Green Cocoon

From Portsmouth Herald

This week's Green Tips come from Green Cocoon, a Salisbury, Mass., company specializing in super efficient insulation options.

1. Install a programmable thermostat. For every 2 degrees Fahrenheit you lower your thermostat, you save 2 percent of heat energy used. Reducing the room temperature in the evening and when the building is vacant can have a large impact on your heating costs.

2. As the weather gets warmer, save on cooling costs by keeping the windows closed as long as possible.

It might sound counterintuitive, but doing so can actually keep your house cooler longer.
