Excellent energy saving tips in the video Mrs. Von D.  Luckily they put in a new slider and windows in my apartment and I am quite cozy doing nothing.

Timely tips, the most return on heating costs are gained by turning down the dial. Unfortunately, I don't do that.  I hate being cold.

Best bang for your buck, seal all those leaks around the building envelope, next insulate properly.

Excellent energy saving thoughts Lisa. I have seen clients save big money but investing in new windows.
