How Can You Save Energy While Spring Cleaning?

April 26, 2012 - 1:26pm


Cleaning your home in between winter and summer is a great way to welcome warmer weather and get some fresh air. Speaking of fresh air, Stephanie talked about her challenge in replacing her furnace filter - a project that usually leads to replacing other filters that can make appliances less efficient (and use more energy), and cleaning the surrounding basement area. It's a great example of how doing one thing to save energy can lead to others.

If you're doing any spring cleaning this season, is energy efficiency part of your project? If not, are there any small changes you can make to save money and energy?
