Heating & Cooling Tips

Now that it is officially HOT here in NE Ohio, our AC is on. I can't sleep at night if it is too hot.

Our home has a small guest room with a large closet. We rarely have guests (approximately 1x/month) and to save money, we keep the registers and doors closed in this room. We also keep the shade drawn despite the fact that it isn't an 'energy efficient' shade, hoping it helps keep heat from escaping (or entering, in the summer). The room is by far coldest in the winter due to our attempts to close the register, door, and blind. The closet is even colder. Which brings me to my next point...

Keeping the closet doors throughout the house closed is another way to save a bit of money on heating or cooling costs. I once read that it is important to close the closet doors, otherwise one is just heating or cooling the closet space!
