Everydayhandyman.com announces its one-stop solution to 'going green' by winterizing your house. This unique website makes it easy for you to 'Go Green' by winterizing your home. Now is the time to winterize your house to make it as energy efficient as possible during the upcoming winter. While you're it, why not 'go green.'
It is possible for the do-it yourself handyperson to help the environment and save money by going 'green' with your home improvements by making your home as energy efficient as possible. Scott Gray, creator of Everydayhandyman.com, says, "The key is to take small steps that yield big results in the long run. As more and more of us make home improvements to save energy we are helping the overall environment."
Winterizing your home has many benefits including reduced heating bills, healthier and more comfortable indoor environments, and less wasted energy resulting in less use of irreplaceable fuels, not to mention reduced emissions that decrease overall air quality. The challenge is that many homeowners do not know that many 'green' repairs and home improvements can be low cost do-it-yourself projects if you have the right information and the right products. Even if you don't know how to read a Lufkin tape measure, you can still 'go green' as you winterize.
Gray also notes that "Our website everydayhandyman.com not only provides access to the best products for DIY home repairs, but offers many how-to articles for all types of home improvement projects." He also suggests doing one project at a time. Small 'green' efforts that can be easily done by most include changing the furnace filter every one to three months, seal your ducts, bundle up your water heater, install ceiling fans and run them in reverse to circulate the heat and install a programmable thermostat to control the temperatures in your home.
To begin 'go green' winterization of your house you should consider the following options:
Replace your old windows with new energy efficient windows; add or replace caulking and worn weather stripping around doors and windows; if you don't have them, install storm doors and install insulation kits behind electrical plugs on exterior walls
