And urge local ans state government to take the same steps in schools, libraries and police stations. Using energy wisely and sparingly ti a good idea.

Good information. Had more of these things done to my home last year. Will continue to do more. Thanks Cher

Noted. Of all of these, the company that did a home energy audit said that comprehensive sealing with quality insulation will result in the most impact, both financially and environmentally. They also shocked me when they suggested abandoning a central HVAC system in favor of only heating or cooling the minimal areas needed for occupancy and pipe protection at any given time!

I didn't know about the energy burst needed by tankless water heaters. May not be the best choice when my current tank goes belly up. Did have an energy audit - learned that you can tell if there are air leaks around baseboards by looking for dirt smudges on the carpet around the baseboards.

Be very careful of tankless hot water uneles you have very soft water. Hard water will quickly pack and destroy the coils' efficiency and cost you more if it doesn't break down first. Can't clean or fix them so you are in for a total replacement. there is no planned maintennace possible to alleviate this either. Over insulation is also a problem as houses need to breathe.

The last thing we did to the house
in Austin before moving here, was
to replace the old windows with
double pane. It made a huge
difference in heating/cooling and
in the noise level from the street!
