As hard as it is to think about, summer’s end is fast approaching. I’ve been trying to ignore this fact, but I think it’s time to face reality. This means that soon, especially for us Canadians, we’ll be spending a lot less time basking in the sun, and a lot more time indoors.
What better way to look at this grim, non-summer filled future than from an efficiency standpoint. Although household efficiency is still a big issue in summertime (think air-conditioning), it’s the winter months where it usually holds the most importance.
Now winter is a quite a ways off, and I apologize for even mentioning it, but now is a good a time as any to prepare yourself for the coming seasons. Luckily for us, the folks at Green Building Elements have a nice little article detailing some cheap and easy ways to monitor and improve your own household efficiency.
Give it a quick read, and don’t forget to get out there and enjoy what is left of summer.
