zeffur7: Do you live above a hot spring?
I find it hard to believe that you only use 45$ worth of energy per month
No/low insulation=rapid heat loss through your roof & walls. Add to that
some wind during the winter & that equals high heat loss.
Adam Coleman: Holy Scrap! That's sofa king cool
ThomasG10mtn: *I made the huge mistake of pausing this video @ **3:06** because Youtube
assumes I want them to automatically play everything in their playlists.
Damn you Youtube!*
Tuco Pacifico: She makes me want to come over when Mikey isn't there and close the drapes.
paul rogers: Nice boobs; I'm impressed.
good video too :-D
Jay Dillon: We built a solar house and we were supposed to carefully close the curtains
every evening when the sun went down. One problem with that is that you
know what, some people are claustrophobic, and would not close a curtain
and seldom close a window even if you paid them like a hundred dollar bill.
So much for that. However, yes, solar works, but you can't let any
claustrophobic people into your home if you want a common sense energy
Jason Killbourn: Nice practical idea, I just wish we had sunshine like that for more than
about three weeks a year here in the UK, as I doubt our bullet grey skies
would produce much by way of heat. Now, if someone could figure out a way
to harness the power of rain, we'd be laughing :-)
mary cranshaw: Heat by the sun, who would have thunk?
Shannon Clark: Ok but what about when theres no sun. Im in Michigan and 75% of our winter
has no sun. Its cloudy all the time. So i guess this wouldnt work for
tinki moon: U should try the pot great method, would ke u warmer than just the sun.
Harold Hart: put some pop cans up on the south facing and heat the house
- also use the poor man's candle & flower pot heater at night.
S. McCloy: Spray paint some 2 liter bottles or laundry soap bottles black and set them
on the window sill the sun will warm the bottles you can bring them to
other parts of the house and keep them warm or take the bottles and set
them in your bed or at your feet. It takes a lot longer for water to change
temp some people have taken fish tanks and placed them in the window like
that? I use my heating pad on my back when I am in the recliner that keeps
your core temp warm. You can get a back brace the kind they use on jobs
where you do heavy lifting and use it to hold a heating pad to your back
and this too can be plugged in say if you are in the kitchen washing dishes
or preparing food? I shared this idea with a guy that works in the cold a
lot he gets a break and he can plug in when he goes inside. Great little
trick for folks that have to deal with a lot of cold. For your hands if you
are outside a lot you can warm some potatoes oven or microwave oven place
them in your pockets and wrap them in foil you can place your hands in your
pocket and get them warmer than if you didn't have them there. Change out
the taters time to time eventually you have cooked taters to eat that will
warm you too.
dreamingcode: I bet she just deals with the cold in the house.
Sherry Hewins: I'm thinking you live in a pretty mild climate. When we were in our
trailer, similar vintage, with the light insulation that came stock in the
trailer, we used these same tricks. It was not too bad in the day, but at
night, when the temps dropped to 11° outside, we were hard pressed to keep
a hot enough fire in the wood stove to make it bearable in the trailer.
Yon Kromis: Try putting bags of leaves around the bottomPaint roof black
Tiffany Boone: Will not work for city dwellers, obviously. But thanks for sharing!
James Hill: Sophisticated? Common sense, lol
fowzie777: Ummm- Our winters are such that in January our day time HIGH might get to
6F plus the fact that we get very little sunlight during the day means that
this system is not going to work.
griseum .: you really don't know what "cold" is. trust me.
Milan Puncer: yeah, i`d like to screw that down from the outside or inside
goodcat1982: is this a joke?
blackopsnerf productions: wtf u live in a trailer I live in a 4 floor house the only reason im
watching this is because I need to heat my game room
Wink Punk: thank you for nothing
Raven Blaze: I have tried to get my roomies to do this! It really works!
Terry O'Rourke: Thank you interesting Terry
breezebro: It'll work in some situations, not others.
Pahansisuinen: She's got a very special beauty, lovely woman
Traveling Picker: Wow who would have ever thought curtains can keep the cold out?
hobocamper1: I don't believe this, unless you like to sleep in temps between 35 and 45
degrees, then maybe.
Evolve432: i do similar but i change out my curtains facing the sun every 6 months,
with dark curtains in winter and white reflective backing curtains during
summer. takes very little time to swap out the curtains and my heating and
cooling bill is probably around 50-60 for 2K sq ft of living space.
Zippy DoDah: That looks like auto sunscreen mats. Where did you get the material...?
5664788: No prob,..I demo'ed my house & rebuilt it so the sun comes through the
windows,...saved a ton.
Lori Strout: move to maine and try that you will be an ice cube
tarqstarqs: I love u x
bigbuck762: So is it 45 or 50 lol
Rory Adam: cloudy days?
S Tallerico: We moved to an older farmhouse last year, which I adore, but quickly had to
learn these tricks, mostly in the summer for us. It makes a HUGE
difference. I love my windows open, but I close all the blinds on the east
side in the morning. Mid-afternoon, i open those and close the west side.
I also try to keep the cool air from overnight in as long as possible
without opening the doors too much in the morning. If the doors are not
left open too much, it could stay cool in here all day just from doing
this, even in 90-degree temps. Funny I never thought of it until moving
ozarkdaredevils: very pretty lady..
Pork Charsui: There aint no sun in January....
Patrick Boehner: If you renovated the whole house why didn't you insulate the house?
dmo infp: Bubble Wrap might help, too, if you don't mind looking through windows that
aren't really clear. But at least you will have light coming through.
click411: I never would have thought of that : Note to self: Open Curtains make room
Joshua TenEyck: She looks pissed.
Andreas748: damn, this girl is pretty smart....
Stephen Williams: I LOVE IT. SMART AND SIMPLE LIVING IS THE WAY TO GO.
bloodandwinearered: Just great. Thanks
shahilhunk: Hi! Have you considered - Maxim Earth 4 Energy (search on google)? Ive
heard some decent things about it and my buddy got cool returns with it.
omarshinken: your freaked if you live in Norway
larby69: Un insulated and 6 degree Fahrenheit .... And the furnace isn't needed...
Ha Ha .. You're dreaming...
DJ H: Thank you so much for sharing!
I wish my family could understand with me the simplicity of this but they
are not in the same mindset and don't care about our $200/month
heating/electric bills! They have now left me so I can how bunker down and
hopefully find someone like-minded to enjoy life with!
