Making Big Changes in Lakewood Park
A Lakewood Park couple, Laura and Todd, recently attended a Clean Energy Forward Workshop in Southwest Central Durham. After the workshop they really got down to business applying the things they learned in the workshop to their own home. This is what they’ve done so far:
• installed insulators in all outdoor wall outlets
• installed weather stripping on their doors
• insulated pipes
• wrapped their hot water heater
• cleaned under their refrigerator
• cleaned the dryer vents
• bought, installed, and are now using a programmable thermostat
• changed all their light bulbs to CFLs
• put their TV on a power strip
• put a watering can under their air conditioning unit to use the excess water on plants
• are now using a rain barrel.
Laura and Todd were so excited about what they learned that they have begun sharing this information with their neighbors. What a great example of neighbors helping neighbors save energy.
Stay tuned for another blog down the road about how much Laura and Todd are actually saving!
