It's so fucking cold out, even PECO feels bad

Peco Energy Saver KitWe're pretty sure we just saw icicles in our toilet, so we can truly appreciate PECO's newest endeavor.

A new online store makes it easier for suckers customers to weather-proof their homes, saving money and conserving energy at the same time. Everything is 20% off for PECO customers and PECO doesn’t profit from any sales.
It's December, it's cold and energy usage is rising, so where can homeowners go to purchase weatherization tools and energy-saving products? Simple, at PECO's new website, customers can purchase discounted energy-saving kits and energy-saving products.
PECO says one item, the Energy Saver Kit (right), can save customers between $125 and $250 per year and costs only $25. The kit includes:
-- Energy-saving information that can help homeowners save money around the house through weatherization and energy and water conservation strategies;
-- Kitchen and bathroom sink and shower aerators are practical, easy to install and are great to help save hot water;
-- Two rolls of foam weather-stripping to seal drafts in doors and windows;

-- Polyethylene tape to weatherproof and seal cracks in windows; and
-- Four switch and eight outlet insulators that fill the empty space behind wall switches and outlets to prevent drafts.
So the foam weather-stripping works on “drafts” does it? How about gusts? It’s not so much that our insulation is bad as — well — it doesn’t exist.
