I really liked this article. Especially the stress on uplugging vampire electronics. I have all electronics going into a power strip that I turn off any time I leave the house for more than an hour. I also just wrote a blog post on conducting an energy audit of a home and thought that you or your readers may be interested in some other important ways they can save money on energy costs in their homes. If you like my article, please give it a like or feel free to share it :-) The second article shows how traditional foam is often a culprit and by using spray foam in these places can really add up in energy savings.
