FIND YOUR DREAM HOME OR APARTMENT
must-see on msn
I've never seen a ceiling fan at Lowes or Home Depot for $50 or even close to that price....I swear to God, who thinks up these articles? You must be brain dead or completely uninformed and most definitely NOT a homeowner. Have you shopped for new dishwashers? a new hot water heater? Ummmm I don't think so. The price savings is laughable. How about telling your readers to turn off lights in unused rooms? Turn their thermostats down to 68-70 in the winter? Try telling them common sense ways to save. That's my 2 cents worth....it's all I can spare with all my ridiculously expensive energy bills and all....just sayin.
several of these 'money savers' are simply wrong.
a tankless water heater does not save enough energy over it's lifespan to even pay for itself, much less, save you anything.
Same with a dishwasher. the cost of the appliance is now so high that it COST YOU MORE to upgrade, than it costs to keep your old one.
compact fluorescent bulbs cost so much (compared to a regular bulb) that you lose money going with them. (plus they are UGLY and a huge pollutant)
All in all, the only valid 'tips' in this article were use weather stripping, and add insulation. Other than that, straight garbage 'advice'.
