By suggesting simple ways to improve energy efficiency at home, Euro-Tech's level-one residential-energy audit can shave up to 30% off bloated energy bills. During an audit, a well-trained energy doctor will examine the amount of energy a home consumes versus the cost of that energy. Then, within one week, auditors will reveal their recommendations in 15- to 25-page reports stuffed with suggested energy-saving stratagems, such as using energy-efficient light bulbs, caulking or replacing windows, adding attic insulation, or handcuffing radiators so their heat waves can't escape.

WLS-TV anchor Ron Magers, former Chicago Bulls center and coach Bill Cartwright, former Exelon Corporation CEO John Rowe, Chicago Cubs legend Ernie Banks, and author and attorney Scott Turow often find themselves reaching for the same suit. They do not share a closet, but the staff at Duru’s Custom Shirts and Suits claims to have tailored threads for each of them. The shop's clothiers, in fact, have draped Egyptian cotton and lightweight wool across the shoulders of numerous notable Chicagoans over the course of more than four decades in business. With the hushed sounds of tailor’s chalk on fabric and humming machinery in the background, the workers also alter wardrobes when patrons are accepting an award or trying to clothe the little guy on their award.
