This website was written to help handy homeowners do many things, large and small, throughout their homes to greatly lower their utility bills. The energy tips are not all “time tested”, they were chosen because each seemed to be worth the labor and cost of materials in most homes. Some will be ineffective on some homes, but if many are done, the time and money will be well-spent. The more costly items I described, such as fans and space heaters, are time-tested ways of lowering utility bills. I have not received compensation of any type for mentioning any material or type of product on the website.
