    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.

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