Going Green: Getting Ready for Winter

Adventurer B

Though winter doesn’t officially start until December 21, it’s already pretty cold around most of the country.  Here are some quick tips to get ready for “official” winter:

• Check the air pressure in your tires. Cooler temperatures lower tire pressure, which lowers fuel efficiency.
• Make sure furniture and obstructions are away from vents to allow the heat to flow freely through the house.
• Check doors for weather stripping and replace as necessary. If you feel a draft from exterior doors, think about replacing the threshold or block the drafts with a rolled-up towel or blanket.
• Bring in plants to protect them from the freeze--they’ll also help clean the air inside.

DING!  You are now free to be Green.
