    Several years back I had recycled newspapers blown into my
    exterior walls.
    My winter time heating bills went from around $120 a month
    down to $20-30. Insulation is a real money saver.

    Ceiling fans are another applicance that can reduce your reliance on your central unit both summer and winter. You just need to reverse the flow in the winter.

    Well explained. If any readers are looking to invest in new energy efficiency technologies in the New York area, make sure to see what incentives and grants are available through the state agency and local utilities. Adopting these technologies can be cost efficient, and there is such a cool market out there like this video shows.

    Love it, that denim insulation is so great, I always get a little nervous using fiberglass.
