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
Yon Kromis: Try putting bags of leaves around the bottomPaint roof black
goodcat1982: is this a joke?
zeffur7: Do you live above a hot spring?
I find it hard to believe that you only use 45$ woth of energy per month to
No/low insulation=rapid heat loss through your roof & walls. Add to that
some wind during the winter & that equals high heat loss.
Terry O'Rourke: Thank you interesting Terry
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!*
Raven Blaze: I have tried to get my roomies to do this! It really works!
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
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.
Tuco Pacifico: She makes me want to come over when Mikey isn't there and close the drapes.
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 :-)
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.
paul rogers: Nice boobs; I'm impressed.
good video too :-D
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.
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.
James Hill: Sophisticated? Common sense, lol
Milan Puncer: yeah, i`d like to screw that down from the outside or inside
tarqstarqs: I love u x
bigbuck762: So is it 45 or 50 lol
Rory Adam: cloudy days?
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
omarshinken: your freaked if you live in Norway
Joshua TenEyck: She looks pissed.
breezebro: It'll work in some situations, not others.
Andreas748: damn, this girl is pretty smart....
Patrick Boehner: If you renovated the whole house why didn't you insulate the house?
Lori Strout: move to maine and try that you will be an ice cube
Stephen Williams: I LOVE IT. SMART AND SIMPLE LIVING IS THE WAY TO GO.
larby69: Un insulated and 6 degree Fahrenheit .... And the furnace isn't needed...
Ha Ha .. You're dreaming...
bloodandwinearered: Just great. Thanks
Pork Charsui: There aint no sun in January....
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.
jane smith: Thanks for uploading, but that's not gonna help me very much.
True, window coverings can make a huge difference, I use them too, every
day BUT winters here can be -30 Celsius for days on end and what if there's
It really sucks to live in Northern Ontario and be stuck paying for
electric heat. Ugh!
The Love Power Goddess: This is just too damn simple!
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!
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
Jim Brown: Nice lady, and practical!
Becky Ezra: i did it as well at home, even more saving is to make those curtains on
each entrance of each room of the house, it even will reduce your bill !!
Kathy Kautzman: Intelligent choices.
bfinfinity: I've done the same thing for years, and it's really good that you went to
all the trouble to make the video and show those who just haven't figured
it out yet...or some who never would. This is a good example of sharing
something that really works and can really help some save money and live
more comfortably with less expense. Thank you!
Liza McCabe: So what if it's cloudy, or you don't have east west facing Windows?
Robert Christ: If I ever have a home built out here in Cutter, NM you can bet I"m puttin
a ton of windows on the south side. I'm lazy though needs to be a way to
get the curtains to open and close automatically.
ebsen raptzski: I took the paneling off my living room, increased the studs to 2 x 4 and
insulated with R11 which was better then I started with.
