Ideas to improve you home air quality and save energy Print E-mail
Friday, 16 July 2010 00:00

Here some ideas to improve you home air quality and save energy:

- Ensure your thermostat is located in an area that's not too cold or hot.

- Install an automatic timer to maintain the thermostat at 68 degrees in the daytime and 55 degrees during the nighttime.

- Use storm or thermal windows in colder areas. The layer of air between the windows acts as insulation and helps keep the heat inside where you are interested.

- If you haven't already, insulate your attic and all outside walls.

- Insulate floors over unheated spaces for example your basement, any crawl spaces and your garage.

Purdue university analysts demonstrate to us one great solution to reduce 50% of winter heating expenses

Researchers at Purdue University are working on a new research project that promises the opportunity to cut heating bill by 50 % for people who reside in very cold climates. The study, funded by the U.S. Department of Energy, builds on previous work that began about five-years ago at Purdue's Ray W. Herrick Laboratories.

Heat pumps provide heating in winter and cooling in summer but aren't efficient in extreme cold climates. The study involves changes to the way heat pumps operate to ensure they are more cost-effective in extreme cold temperatures.

Capturing the Spirit of Detroit's Neglected Homes Print E-mail

brush_park_8When I read the article by Tracey Taylor at SFgate.com, I felt the need to share it with our readers.

Photographer Kevin Bauman has been capturing pictures of Detroit's neglected homes since the 1990s. He watched the demographics of the city change, as its population dwindled from close to 2 million citizens, to most likely less than 800,000.

As he explains : « The abandoned houses project began innocently enough roughly ten years ago. I actually began photographing abandonment in Detroit in the mid 90’s as a creative outlet, and as a way of satisfying my curiosity with the state of my home town. I had always found it to be amazing, depressing, and perplexing that a once great city could find itself in such great distress, all the while surrounded by such affluence. »
