My Green Tips

As you know from reading this blog, I have been using my apartment as a laboratory of sorts. It is almost time to shut off the air conditioning or at least curtail it sharply at night. You can save money with every degree.

I have written this before, but shut off the paddle fans when you leave the room. Paddle fans only cool using wind chill across your skin.

For next year, shade your central air conditioner. The unit will not have to work as hard without direct sunlight

    Steve, speaking of using your apartment as a guinea pig, I think it would be great if you added a feature to your blog on apartment sized appliances. E.g. 18" dishwashers, smaller scale stoves and fridges, all-in-one washer dryer combos, smaller scale lighting, etc.

    I really enjoy your blog. Thanks.

  2. Thank you for your comments...I have blogged about the combo washer and dryer in August, but I have not looked at apartment sized equipment ever...But we do take requests here. I have actually scheduled blog posts until next week. The subject will be covered early next week

    Thanks again,


    PS: If anyone is interested in a combo, we have 6 in our clearance returned from The Macallen job in South Boston
