Energy bills are going to be sky-high this year --that is, unless you are prepared! 10-Minute Energy Saving Tips will arm you with hundreds of easy, innovative ways to cut your heating bills (and your cooling bills next summer!).

Tips include:

  • Open curtains when the sun comes up to let the sun's energy in, but close them as soon as it gets dark to keep the warm air inside the house.
  • Caulk around any old windows to prevent leaks.
  • Close doors and lower heat in all zones you don't use every day, like the guest bedroom or the study.
  • Invest in down comforters and wool blankets for the beds and turn your heat down you'll sleep better, and save on heating costs!
  • Buy plastic sheeting and cover very drafty windows. It's inexpensive at the home improvement store, and it can save you a bundle.
  • Replace your old storm door with a new one to prevent drafts.
  • Lower the temperature on your water heater - this also helps to prevent scalding!

I originally purchased this book as a first time home buyer to learn about home energy, but it would be a good resource for those of us that make seasonal to-do lists for around the home. Since this book covers the entire home it does not go into great detail about any one topic.
