Keep Closets and Drawers Closed

To save on your heating and cooling costs, keep your closet doors closed (same for dresser drawers, cabinet doors and such). Why pay to heat spaces you are not living in? Sounds petty, but closets and cabinets in most homes will add up to several square hundred feet. Why heat or cool it?

There are two schools of thought on this. I leave my closets opened because it prevents any musty smells from forming. You don't really lose that much heat that way. Drawers especially kitchen drawers should be kept closed because many times there is cold air coming through from openings for pipes.

I agree. Also, when the temperature drops, keeping the under the sink cabinets open a little bit might mean the difference between frozen pipes and a smooth stress free winter.
