Today is National Sweater Day. If you don’t know what that is, it is a day created by the WWF to help gain awareness on climate change and help conserve energy. For more information on today visit http://www.sweaterday.ca/ to see how you can help or take part.
Just because today is national sweater day does not mean that you can’t conserve energy this winter by dialing down the thermostat and putting on a sweater. A great way to help save energy and heat only the room you spend the most time in is an electric fireplace or stove.
Electric fireplaces and stoves are very fashionable and compliment any room of the house, while providing up to 400 sq feet of heat. Electric fireplace media stands provide the same warmth of a fireplace while holding your TV, which is perfect since most people spend their time at home in the living room.
So turn down your thermostat, put on a sweater, and switch on your electric fireplace to save money and energy!
