Cold Air Penetration 101.

So far we have talked about how Dense Cold Air basically forces it way into your home through all kinds of tiny cracks and crevices.  The air wants to force itself in because it is so much more dense and has a greater weight.  That weight pushes against the warm air inside and forces itself inside.

Today let’s look at some spots where the Cold Air Penetrates into your home.  Remember we are chasing those things that when fixed will make a significant improvement and are cheap.

Let’s talk more about thickheaded air. Oops, wrong dense.

For us to fully understand the concept of Cold Air Penetration it is important to wrap our minds around the facts of air being dense.

When the various molecules within air are all squeezed together very tightly the air is more dense or heavier or thicker or heavier.  How’s that for a profound scientific explanation?  Well, it is true, dense air is heavier and heavy things tend to fall downward.

Winterizing your home!

It seems as though local print media along with TV and radio are all broadcasting information about how you should proceed to make your home more energy efficient.  All this as winter slowly creeps up on us.

Over the next couple weeks or months we will make an effort to show you those things that are easy, effective and cheap.  We will also point out those helpful things that despite being helpful make absolutely no sense.

It is going to cost you more to heat your house this year!

Today we are going to lean on two long range predictions coming from The Energy Information Administration (EIA) and the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

The EIA is predicting that fuel costs this coming winter “…you will likely pay more to heat your home this winter than you die last winter….”

How about saving a lot of money!

The US Department of Energy (DOE) has just recently published their predictions for financial savings as America conforms to contemporary Energy Codes.

As all of you know Vermont Modular continually talks about Energy Efficiency, savings money, not contributing to Global Warming, doing the right thing for our Environment.  These are all key Core Values of Vermont Modular.

How's your electric bill doing lately?

I came across a little known fact today and want to share with you…………

Did you know that across the nation the average Electric Bill is going down?  In the age of constantly rising prices it is quite the shock to know that the average monthly electric bill in The United States is actually going down.

As winter approaches the phone rings! Where were you?

This fall Vermont Modular has become a very busy place.  Last week we ordered a big house for central Vermont and as we speak there are two homes in the plant being built.

It seems as though all summer long people are “…at the beach” enjoying summer in Vermont.  But, just in case you haven’t noticed the leaves are turning and almost everyone has turned on their heat.  I’ve had the heat on for a couple weeks. 

It happens every year without fail.

We live here in Vermont where many will comment that the weather is simply awful.  Much of the year it is cold, snowy, ice covered, windy, and for some us just miserable.  However there is nothing quite as wonderful as a summer in Vermont.  The results of my very NON-scientific study reports that during the summer people are at the beach, eating hot dogs, and simply enjoying summer, worries about winter’s cold are ignored.
