Marvin also is teaming up with Lou Manfredini, host of HouseSmartsTV and home improvement contributor for NBC's Today Show, to offer a broad range of energy-efficiency advice -- from the small to the large.
Lou's tips include:
- Service your heating system every year. It's the best money you'll spend. The cost for a typical service call to clean the unit and change filters in both the furnace and humidifier? The average is around $75-$100, depending on where you live.
- Check the arrangement of your furniture. Really. Many times people put couches and chairs over vents and in front of baseboard radiators, decreasing the efficiency of the units. By restricting the airflow, you increase the use of your furnace or boiler -- ultimately the energy used to heat your home.
- Replace old, leaky windows and doors. Windows and doors are key to your home's comfort and energy efficiency. Outdated or failing windows are responsible for a large percentage of the wasted energy in homes and other buildings. In the winter, windows can leak heat or block too many of the sun's warming rays -- meaning you burn more fuel and pay higher utility bills. In summer, poorly performing windows let cool air escape and fail to reflect outdoor heat.
