Next Energy Efficiency Project

August 25th, 2011 Posted in home improvement

Trying to pick my next home energy efficiency project. Melissa and I were supposed to go to the beach in Delaware this weekend but Hurricane Irene has thwarted our plans. I have a rainy weekend to try one of these:

1. Ceiling Fan in the guest bedroom. No more steaming while reading, and more comfortable for friends sleeping over

2. Solar Shades to keep the sun out and the place cooler (and let me sleep longer)

3. Home beer brewing. It takes soooo much energy to transport the beer from the brewery to me.

4. More motion detector light switches. Some of the lights turn off when you leave the room. Upgrade the rest of them.


Have to pick one, any suggestions?

    Can I have meal number 1 and 2 to stay?

    I would love to read while not steaming and would love a cold beer too (if you have a glass of wine, I would prefer that, but I will take a beer if that is all you have :-)

    didn’t get to the beer brewing unfortunately. Did make the homemade spicy ketchup though and installed a new bookshelf into a wall!
