Since heating and cooling accounts for up to 2/3 of our home energy consumption, it’s good to know that there are modern green technologies available such as geothermal heat pumps which reduce heating and cooling costs, energy usage and corresponding emissions by up to 72%.

Old wood has more personality and it is great to use wood that has some history to it. Sort of connects us all to the past.

Old wood has more personality and it feels good to use a product that has had some history to it.

I love commuting and doing a car pool saves money and saves the oxygen.

I do this by implementing various driving techniques and maintaining my vehicle properly via tune ups, oil changes, and taking care of my tires. I’ve also made it my job to inform others on how to do this via my web site.

In addition, I’m researching and reporting on hybrid technology, and in the future will report on alternative fuel vehicles and electric cars.

I also ditch the vehicle whenever possible and go for a walk to the convenience store or playgrounds with the kids, instead of driving to those that are further away.
