Winterize Your Home: Wrap It Up

Wrapped Though we're already well into winter, many of us are still seeking green solutions to keeping our living spaces warm and comfy. This week's tips are about how to winterize your home in ecofriendly ways. 

Tip #2: Wrap It Up

Did you know that simply wrapping your water heater with an insulating blanket cuts the cost (both financial and environmental) of heating the water? We even show you exactly how to do it here, with our step-by-step video.

And depending on where you live, if you go tankless or solar, you might be eligible for a tax rebate too.

Likewise, if you or one of your family members feels cold while at home, revert to getting snug in a blanket or coat before cranking up the heat -- and the heating bill.
