    Will you please discuss the two most important ways to save energy in the home or office: wearing warm clothes in winter, and not running the heat, and using fans and shades in the summer instead of air-conditioning. This is what I do, including in NYC this last year, and it really works! And wearing a sweater instead of turning on the heat will keep you much more alert too! Thanks! -f

    I was watching the Yankee Workshop on PBS. They were discussing whether you should or shouldn't clean off your dishes prior to putting them into a dishwasher. If you don't clean off you dishes & leave food on the plates, that food can clog up the dishwasher and cause it to stop working.

    Which is worse, using your water to wash off the dishes prior to putting them into your dishwasher or damaging your dishwasher because food clogs it up?

    By focusing on cost savings you are missing the point that saving energy reduces global warming.

    Also, closing the vent and door to an unused room in the winter may not save much energy. But it is such a simple act that takes only a moment.
