Energy Tip Week of January 14

by Utah Nickel

Use the sun for free heat. That glowing orb in the sky should be the focus of temperature control in your residence throughout the year. During winter days, open the curtains on your south-facing windows to bring free heat into your home. Close your window coverings when the sun goes down to keep more of the heat inside.  This technique uses what is called “passive solar” because no human generated energy is used to produce the heat.
