This is the time of the year when people start thinking about ways to heat their homes more efficiently.
If your heating equipment is over 20 years old, consider upgrading it. New equipment is much more efficient than the older versions.

Whether you find yourself grumpy and lethargic during the long, cold winter or whether you legitimately suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), which is a type of depression related to the season, there's no doubt you'll feel better with more light in your life. Consider these suggestions:


1. Fling open the drapes and let the sun shine in! To clean your way to the most light possible, grab a spray bottle and fill it equally with vinegar and water, then spray and wipe your windows. lf you have screens on your windows and won't be opening them for a couple more months, remove the screens to allow more sunshine to sparkle through. Take advantage of this free "solar power" to warm up your rooms.
