Energy efficiency at home


Do you want to make your house more energy efficient?  Maybe you want to help the environment, save money on your electricity bill, or just try out the latest green technology?  This hour we get tips on how to boost the efficiency of your home from CHRIS PASTORE and ROB FLEMING co-directors of the Engineering and Design Institute at Philadelphia University, from light bulbs to geothermal heating. We’ll also talk about how home energy use has changed over the years — think about all those gadgets charging around the house. And  Marty also talks about smart thermostats with MATT ROGERS, the founder and Vice-President of Engineering at Nest Labs which makes the Nest Thermostat.
