Christmas Shopping From an Architect: Energy Efficient and Cost Effective
Time to finish up your Christmas Shopping!
Well it is December 23rd, so probably time for you guys to finish your Christmas shopping. Ok, who are we fooling, it is time for some of you guys to start your Christmas shopping. I know it is hard to figure out what she is dreaming of, so I am here to help. Every girl I know LOVES getting energy efficiency tools that will help lower electric bills and save the planet. Here are some ideas:
Solar Panels – who does not love a good solar panel?
Spray Foam – girls LOVE spray foam
An Energy Audit (call me and I might be able to provide a basic one for free)
Energy audits are an inspection that looks at energy flow in a building. The objective of an audit is to identify things that can be modified to reduce energy usage and increase comfort and safety for the occupants of the building.
Heat Pump Hot Water Heater
Front load washer and dryer (careful on this one, it might not have the impact you want)
Thermal curtains to make your rooms more comfortable.
Water efficient faucets to help reduce hot water demand.
Energy gaskets for the electric outlets and light switches
If these don’t work, I have no idea what went wrong….
