Believe it or not, there is a certain way to slant the blinds during the colder months as well as a certain way to slant the blinds in the warmer months for energy efficiency.
During cold months, the horizontal blind’s slats should be slanted from the indoors to the outdoors (up). Also, be sure your horizontal blinds are lowered so they touch the windowsill. Slanting the blinds this way will trap the cool air between the window and the blinds and will keep your room warmer in the winter months.
Do just the opposite for warm months. Slant the blinds from the outdoors to the indoors (down). This will keep most of the warm air blocked between the blinds and the windows to keep your room cooler when you so desperately need it.
Also, if your a year round ceiling fan person, in the cold months you should have the ceiling fan blowing down on you, simply because hot air rises. If you keep the fan blowing on you, you can recycle the hot air in your home and the heater will not have to work as hard to heat your home.
In the summer months, again, just the opposite! Since hot air rises, you want the ceiling fan so that it pulls the cool air up away from the floor and not pushing the hot air down on you. Just a silly thing to keep your air condition to not have to run overtime and run up that electric bill.
One might thing that changing your blinds and your ceiling fan is a silly thing, but if you think of the blinds and fan going in the wrong direction as costing you more money in your home, it's not so silly after all. If this makes sense to you, you may want to start thinking about yourself personally, the same way. We all have minor glitches, stresses, or stumbling blocks in our lives. It’s through these glitches in any one or all areas of the mind, body, or spirit that help aid in the blockages in our bodies that create illness and disease.
If your that person that will do everything you can in your home to save energy and spend less on electricity, you should do the same for your physical body. I invite you to make yourself a priority and take care of you to bring yourself from a state of dis-ease back to a more balanced and healthy state.
Did this simple little blog has made you aware of energy saving, and have you actually changed your blinds? At the very least, hopefully, it gave you a little smile! But if you have changed your blinds and fans, are you now ready to take care of and change your body for perfect efficiency and health?
Things that make you go hmm!
Live, love, & laugh every day!
