Historic Explorers – Action!
Explorers look at the world with an inquisitive eye. They are curious to discover the true nature of their surroundings. If we looked at familiar places with that same intensity, what would we find?
Start with your home. You probably think you know it quite well, but you may be surprised to discover where your house might be losing energy. The U.S. Department of Energy website has instructions for doing your own home energy audit. It also has information on choosing a professional energy audit, if you prefer.
Explorers also use creativity and perseverance to solve problems and reach goals. The Department of Energy website has information to help you reach your goal of a more energy-efficient home.
What if you can’t afford to weatherize your house? Explorers seek support for their projects and you can too. The Department of Energy’s Weatherization Assistance Program helps low-income families weatherize their houses. The average savings on heating bills is over 30%.
