It seems many look to our government for guidance far too often as some are actually calling for a “cash for caulkers” program. From today’s Wall St. Journal:
Such unsexy-sounding home improvements can be some of the most lucrative in terms of energy savings and make a home far more comfortable. The federal Energy Star program estimates homeowners can save up to 20% on heating and cooling costs just by sealing and insulating, or “weatherizing” against the elements.
I find this one part tragic and one part common-sense. Couldn’t we just hire a Louisville handyman or do the work ourselves?
