Energy and money saving tips from Efficiency Maine

No cost heating insulation tips: turn down the thermostat. Consider turning down your thermostat to 55 degrees when the house is unoccupied. At night when you are sleeping, consider turning your thermostat down to 60 degrees. It is a common myth that it takes more energy to re-heat a home that has been set to a lower temperature than it does to keep the heat at a constant level. The more you turn down the heat when you don’t need it, the more you will save.

Adjust window treatments. During the day, let sunlight in by opening curtains, blinds and shades on the windows facing the sun to keep your home warm and reduce heating needs. At night or when the sky is overcast, keep drapes and curtains closed to keep heat indoors.

MAKING THE FIRST DAY EASIER

Remind your child that she is not the only student who is a bit uneasy about the first day of school. Teachers know that students are anxious and will make an extra effort to make sure everyone feels as comfortable as possible.

-- Point out the positive aspects of starting school: It will be fun. She'll see old friends and meet new ones. Refresh her positive memories about previous years, when she may have returned home after the first day with high spirits because she had a good time.

-- Find another child in the neighborhood with whom your youngster can walk to school or ride with on the bus.

-- If you feel it is appropriate, drive your child (or walk with her) to school and pick her up on the first day.
