Summer is the best time for get-togethers with family and friends. So, if it’s your turn to host, don’t miss out on energy savings opportunities that are as close as your deck or backyard. —Editor’s note:  This article by Enoch Lenge, an energy-efficiency spokesman for Eversource, is from his blog on the Eversource.com website. It seems a bit late in the summer for these kinds of energy-saving projects, but you can certainly still make changes this now, save a bit and save more next year — especially if you have a swimming pool and especially if you heat it. And you’ll be doing your part to help the environment.

With summer underway, many of us are trying to wrap up home improvement projects so that we can kick back and relax when we have time off. However, as you are finishing up these projects, don’t forget about making sure that the cool air you’ll be paying for this summer stays in your home. We all know that air can escape under a door and through leaky windows. But did you know that it can also leak through less obvious places like ductwork, outlets, attic entrances, recessed lights and moldings? Beyond driving up energy costs, air leaks can affect your home’s durability, comfort and overall indoor environment.
