Practical Advice from Michael Blasnik: Home Energy Savings Myths and Facts

At the September 2011 GreeningRozzie community meeting we heard Michael Blasnik talk about practical ways to save energy. You can download the slides from his talk: “Home Energy Savings Myths and Facts” below. Slide 15 is particularly useful -- it lists the things you can do to save energy and estimated dollar savings per year. First on the list? Make sure the air handler switch on your furnace is set to “Auto” rather than “On”. This quick easy action could save you as much as $600 a year. Next on the list? Make sure your attic is insulated. This could save you as much as $480 a year. (Renew Boston can help with the costs.)
