Dear Mr. Summers, I just came across your site while doing research for the monthly column I write for my husband's company, Breton Electric. What a great blog!
I just put a link to it on our website so that our customers and others who happen upon our site can benefit from your expertise and experience. What a wealth of practical and insightful information! (And, I have not yet even had a chance to fully peruse the site.)
Thank you for taking your time to create and maintain such a valuable blog. And, as a writer, I commend you on your clear, concise, and entertaining writing style. :) Sincerely, Wendy Dennis Office Manager
Received by email: You are so awesome; I love the detailed explanation of the U and R values. I have yet to find anybody better than you at translating all the gobbledy-gook of home energy efficiency.
Thanks! Jennifer Rodriguez

Congratulations Birney! A terrific milestone to achieve. With oil prices soooo high, I find myself coming to your site and viewing past posts on energy conservation. Because of some of your suggestions, I've managed to keep my utility bill (gas+electric) the same dollar amount even though the price of energy from our utility company went up 10%. You've helped me save 10% on my bill. Thanks, and keep up the great blog, SherriYou have a very informative site it's a pleasure to visit and a good learning experience.Thank you, Robbie Martin
I like your storytelling style EB. It really helps to get your point across. Karen
What a great site. I laughed out loud when I read your piece about driving and saving gas. This is EXACTLY what my own father (God rest his soul) told me when he taught me to drive oh so many years ago. "Coast, coast, coast", he would always say! Your picture reminds me of my Dad and you advice was like hearing him all those years ago when we were small, "Shut the light off if you're not using the room, put on a sweater or do the dishes if you're cold, etc."

I ran across this blog when I was looking for a window quilt tutorial. I read a bit and was very impressed with all the tips. He also solved my lack of storm windows problem. I knew I wanted to cover the screens in plastic somehow and he does just that. I just hadn't thought to use 3M double sided tape to do it.
Thanks Birney, I think you just saved us alot of money, reading your hints, put ideas in our heads.. Our over 100 yr old house has a big draft. We thought it as from the cat door we have in the bedroom. This room is always real cold, or hot. The window was suppose to be NEW, and was installed before we bought the house.
After reading your tips, we decided to thumb tack an oversize, thick towel over the window,, Just to see what happened.. Well to everyone's surprise... the room, I swear is 40 degrees warmer.. Its almost like there is no window in there!! Thanks for the idea.. now we need to replace the window. I'm sure if we are losing that much heat, the cool in the summer isn't in staying either!! Also we are going to try that insulating paint, maybe that will help with the plaster.
