It’s not surprising that today marks the first day of winter. It is after all a cold, snowy day here in Breckenridge, Colorado with a low tonight of -6 degrees. In honor of the first day of winter, we complied a list of ways to help you stay warm this winter season. From radiant flooring to ventless fires, see how you can beat that winter chill!

We love Planika’s remote-controlled, smoke-free, eco-friendly, ventless fires. Since there is no need for any kind of ventilation, this “fireplace” can be installed anywhere. In an existing hearth or even in the middle of your coffee table.

Many of you have probably heard that beginning on January 1, 2012, a new law will go into effect “phasing out standard 100-watt incandescent bulbs”. This law was enacted to encourage the use of more energy-efficient lighting and other countries like Switzerland and Australia have already started their planned phase-outs. Some have criticized this new law stating that it puts a imposed cost increase on light bulbs for those who might not be able to afford them, but the new and improved energy-efficient light bulbs will save you the cost of replacing the bulbs earlier.

Yahoo! has put together some myths that have sprung up with this new law, so here’s a link to their story “The Truth About the New Light Bulb Law”.

We’d love to hear what you think about the new law?

A “green remodel” can mean so many different things; there is no one-size-fits-all approach, and every remodel is ultimately as unique as the homeowner who envisioned it.

3. Room-by-room Remodeler

Are you the type of person who eats one item at a time on your plate and doesn’t like anything to touch or mix together? Either way, your remodeling efforts are focused on one specific space, and you need advice that is unique to that particular room:

4. Budget Conscious Remodeler

Who doesn’t want to save money? Just because you don’t have a lot to spend on your home right now, that doesn’t mean you can’t make a few green improvements. Here are a few ways to save:
