9 mood-lifting ideas to make your home more welcoming and efficient this winter

thQDTWEXH6

The Warm & Cozy Home Guide
Deirdre Sullivan

The dark days of winter can really do a number on your well-being. Shorter days trigger the blahs; freezing temps spark the sniffles. So we put together a list of ideas that’ll turn your home into a comfy haven.

Cozy and Clever Energy Savers

Here’s how to create a brighter and warmer home without using more energy or cranking up the thermostat.

1. Clean dirty light fixtures and dusty bulbs to make your home appear 30% brighter without turning on more lights.

2. Seal sneaky air leaks. It’s not just window and door leaks killing your cozy vibe. Don’t forget to plug stealthy gaps around recessed lights, electrical boxes, and wall outlets. Use a lit incense stick or scented candle to hunt down drafty spots while leaving behind a cozy scent.

3. Replace your traditional gas or wood fireplace. Why? Both suck out heated indoor air and send it up the chimney. A gel fireplace insert is an eco-friendly option that produces a burning fire without gas, wood, electricity, or even a chimney. It’s also smoke-free and emits fewer allegans than a wood fireplace; some options crackle like the real thing. A basic model costs between $100 to $210; custom models go up exponentially from there. A case of gel fuel comes with 12 cans that burn for three hours each (about $35).

Tip: Use a slow cooker to infuse your home with a warm and cozy aroma. Even better, slow cookers are more energy efficient than electric ovens, typically using less energy than a light bulb.

Immunity Boosters

You’ll feel coziest in a healthy indoor environment that keeps allergies at bay and reduces your chances of getting sick.

4. Get plants. Some indoor plants, like golden pothos and gerbera daisies, are particularly adept at sucking up nasty VOCs — the vapors emitted from household cleaners, paints, and dry cleaning. And since plants increase humidity levels, they help decrease household dust.

5. Vacuum while your thermostat is set to “fan on.” This helps filter dust that gets kicked-up while cleaning. Just leave the fan on for about 15 minutes after you finish vacuuming and switch it back to “auto” afterward. HVAC blowers aren’t intended to run all the time.

6. Change your HVAC filter every couple months (monthly if you have pets) to prevent excess dust from circulating.

Tip: Combat superbugs with copper. If you’re planning to upgrade your kitchen or bathroom fixtures, consider classic and homey-looking copper or a copper alloy like brass. A three-hospital study in 2011 found that bacteria can only survive on copper for a few minutes, but germs can live on stainless steel for weeks.

Sun Worshippers

Lack of natural light can trigger a mean case of the winter doldrums — or worse, mood-altering seasonal affective disorder. Maximize daylight and make rooms feel warmer by adding the following to your yearly fall maintenance checklist.

7. Make your windows pane-fully clear. Clean glass not only lets more natural light into your home, it’s a feel-good task, according to a survey by the American Clean Institute. When ACI asked consumers what clean surfaces make them happy, “gleaming windows” made the top five above a “spotless sink.”

8. Ditch your window screens in the fall and winter. They trap dirt and can make your home appear darker inside and out. It’s a good curb appeal booster, too.

9. Add an interior window to a room next to a sun-drenched space to take advantage of natural light.

Tip: Paint chilly rooms, especially north-facing walls that don’t typically get sunlight, in reds, oranges, or yellows — cozy colors that can actually help the room feel warmer, according to a Michigan State University study.

Get to Know Oregon Salmon Watch Program

Salmon Watch
by Grant McOmie – October 17th, 2014

Many Oregon streams – like Eagle Creek in the Columbia River Gorge – show that summer has past and now, it is fall! The small creek near Bonneville dam is often choked with chinook and coho salmon, and it is a prime site to watch the fish.

The Salmon River near Welches, Oregon also offers a fine spot for a Salmon Watch. Here, the chinook salmon are hard to miss – no longer gleaming silver, the big fish are mottled black and gray. They started life right here four years ago and that is a profound lesson not lost on Kirk Ordway’s 6th grade class. “I have been fortunate to join the Salmon Watch program for the past four years and it’s huge with the kids; getting them out here and experience nature one on one,” said Ordway. In fact, his group of youngsters are a part of 1200 Portland area students – ranging from middle school through high school experience a Salmon Watch this fall thanks to the not for profit, Portland-based “World Salmon Council.”

Ordway’s watch actually began in his science class at Mt Tabor Middle School – where the salmon watch program provides the curriculum, supplies – plus the cost of the field trip and even pay for a substitute teacher, so Ordway is able to join his students in the field when the salmon watch field day arrives.

In the field, volunteer teacher Janet Davis (one of four volunteers assigned to each class) guided the young newcomers by teaching them scientific methods to measure the environment. Davis was retired when she learned that the Salmon Watch program needed volunteers, so she stepped up to lead her life in a new direction. “Students must be able to think systematically rather than ‘Oh, I was told this, therefore it must be true.’ They need a way to verify what they see and hear in a systematic way. Plus, I love the outdoors and wanted to be a part of it.”

Since the Salmon Watch program began more than 20 years ago, over 60,000 Oregon students have learned what salmon need to thrive, noted Alyssa Thornburg. Thornburg is the Salmon Watch Program Manager and added that not surprisingly, it’s what people need, too: cold, clean water. “Salmon are so deeply characteristic of our region and yet kids grow up these days not knowing that we live so close to magnificent streams, and that these salmon swim through here every season of the year. It’s an important heritage that youngsters need to know so they can protect it.”

Mt Tabor Middle School student, Austin Larsen, said that a day streamside observing and learning takes hold in a way the classroom can’t. “We tested water quality and we ran some transect lines and quadrant lines in the forest to survey the vegetation. I have learned that salmon need specific conditions to live in, so the water needs to be a perfect range of temperatures or they won’t survive. Well, I want to survive too, so it’s important to know this information.”

Kirk Ordway said that sort of understanding for his students – or anyone – who calls Oregon their home. “How often can you go around the city and see salmon running up a stream? You can’t. How often can you walk through an old growth forest – you can’t! So the chance for us to come here – to an old growth forest area along the Salmon River and bear witness to nature and its life cycles – it’s a remarkable moment and you can’t beat that.”
