Energy-Saving Group Sheds Light on Burning Question

Where is the sun? While you are reminding yourself that it’s still up there, think about maximizing the sun’s warmth during the heating season. This means opening curtains and shades to allow the sun to shine in during the day (cover objects that might fade in the sunlight). If there are heavy, dark objects for the sun to shine on, these will add to the ability to store up heat and give it back during the evening. When the sun sets, close the curtains or shades to keep heat in the house. PCToday “Green Tips” are provided by the Penn College Energy Conservation Subcommittee; email Chairman Richard C.
