When it's freezing cold outside, that doesn't mean you need to crank up the thermostat, use natural resources and waste money to stay warm inside. If it's sunny outside, open the shades and drapes to let the bright sunshine inside. The sun's rays will have a greenhouse effect and create real warmth inside your home. At night, do the opposite: Shut the blinds and close the drapes to maximize the energy efficiency of your windows.
