Winneshiek Energy District and the Green Iowa AmeriCorps team encourage you to observe “National Cut Your Energy Costs Day!” TODAY, January 10. It’s a new year, so now is a great time to make small changes in your lifestyle that will add up to a big difference throughout the year. What better changes to make than resolving to reduce energy consumption? No one likes to spend more of their hard-earned income than needed. With a little effort, you can slash your annual energy bills by a significant amount! Here’s five ways to start saving today: • When it comes to light bulbs, you’ll save in the long run if you make the switch from incandescents and compact fluorescents to LEDs. While the upgrade may seem cost prohibitive, LED bulbs use over 80% less power than incandescents, and last more than a decade. They now come in all shapes, sizes, and color temperatures. • Install a programmable thermostat so that you never have to remember to turn down the heat when you’re not home. By programming your furnace, you can ensure you stay toasty when home, but don’t waste heat when you’re not. It takes just minutes to program. • With the temperatures plunging, now is the time to seal your home for the winter months. If you haven’t already completed weather-stripping, caulking, spray foam, and other air sealing measures, you’ll be amazed by what a difference these methods can make! • On-the-go families should carpool when possible. Whether to a sporting event, music concert, or school play — consider which of your family friends are headed to the same place at the same time as you. The minivan doesn’t need to have empty seats. • Reduce the temperature of your water heater. Additionally, use less hot water by installing low-flow shower heads. You’ll be as clean as ever, but your wallet won’t be cleaned-out. If all of these energy saving tips seem like a lot to tackle, contact the Winneshiek Energy District and Green Iowa AmeriCorps. We are here to serve you by helping implement all the above suggestions, and more. If you are low to moderate income, elderly, disabled, or a veteran — you may qualify for free in-home efficiency upgrades. Even if you do not qualify for free materials, our installations will cost significantly less than doing it on your own. Celebrate “National Cut Your Energy Costs Day!” by giving us a call this week to schedule your home energy efficiency consultation and upgrade. 563-382-4207

Merry holidays to the wonderful families that I have been privileged to serve.
All blessings for 2015!
