Energy - What we’re doing
We've Started Simple:
In the winter when we’re home it’s set at 68 degrees. At night and when we’re not home I set it at 62 degrees. In the summer I set it at 78 degrees when we’re home.
We also had our energy company come out and do an assessment. Our windows needed attention. When we did replace our windows it made a huge difference. We still have some open items on our list and we get a few done each year.
As bulbs have burned out, we’ve replaced them with energy efficient bulbs.
In our latest building, we had in-floor heat put in. We’re still playing with the settings, but it seems to work pretty well. We haven’t turned on the furnace but a few times over the winter.
We’ve been talking about how we can incorporate solar, and wind. As we discover more, we’ll post it.
