Energy Saving Tips

With winter, comes the cooler weather. Please see some energy (and money) saving tips below:

  • Try installing quilted curtains over drafty windows to help keep the heat inside
  • Use weather stripping, window film and calking to control heat loss around doors, windows and baseboards
  • Opening blinds and curtains during the day and closing them at night allows you to warm up your home and keep the heat in
  • When you are home and awake, set your thermostat as low as feels comfortable
  • Schedule service on your heating system
  • Replace your heater’s filter as often as recommended by the manufacturer
  • If you have working fireplaces, you should get your chimneys cleaned by an experienced chimney sweep as it will help decrease the risk of fire from buildup or blockages

MLK Dream

In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. – an activist who became the most visible spokesperson and leader of the civil rights movement – today we take a look back at some of his inspirational quotes:

“I have a dream…”

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”

I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”

New Year’s Resolutions

“This is the year I’m finally going to…”
