Iowa City’s Climate Fest is on its third day and will focus on how energy-efficient buildings can. save money.

The personal challenge for day 3 includes weatherizing your home for the winter. The climate fest provides this video from the U.S. Department of Energy that can save home-owners up to $83 a year with just one adjustment to the thermostat. The fest is also offering some simple and inexpensive DIY projects that can provide more savings for homes and apartments.
