Do-It-Yourself Energy Efficiency Projects eBook!

By Vernon Trollinger, May 12, 2011, Energy Efficiency, News, Save Money

The tough economy these past two years meant a lot of people couldn’t take advantage of the 2009-2010 Energy Efficiency Tax Credit because they couldn’t afford new doors, windows, water heaters, or more insulation.  Still, there a few less expensive things you can do around your home to make it more comfortable, more energy efficient, and keep your Texas electric rates low.

For example, hot summer temperatures are expected through out Texas.  Just by laying down a vapor barrier in your crawl space, installing a programmable thermostat, or even putting up thermal-backed curtains to block out late afternoon sun will go far to keep your home dry and cool for less money.  And you can do this stuff yourself.

Bounce Energy, a Texas energy company, has put it all in its eBook, Do-It-Yourself Energy Efficiency Projects, that you can download for free.  It takes you from your foundation all the way to the top of your roof and gives you tips on those little things you can do to seal your home and save money on both your heating and cooling bills.  The great thing is that you don’t need to do these jobs all at once.  Just tackling them one weekend at a time will help you cut your energy bill.
