With Earth Day right around the corner, we thought it would only be fit for us to focus the month of April on the benefits of living a “greener” life and becoming more environmentally conscious. Below are some tips on how you could live a greener life that are not only beneficial to our environment, but could be very valuable to your pocket at well!
This is something everyone is probably guilty of, and something that is an extremely quick fix when it comes to saving water! Turn off the faucet while you’re brushing your teeth; only wash full loads of laundry (in cold water, which saves you energy!); stop using water bottles and use the tap water to fill a reusable filtration system (such as a Brita); & fix those leaky faucets!
Although this may seem like a no-brainer, many of us are still guilty of doing this! Simply shut off all the lights after leaving a room, and if your are feeling extra “green” unplug the electrical equipment that you aren’t using during the day and while you are sleeping! (Think big items that use a great deal of energy, such as computers/televisions)
Just turning up your AC by 2 degrees can save you big time on your energy bill.
Look for Energy Star appliances when replacing appliances in your home. Although they do tend to run a bit more expensive, using energy efficient appliances will in turn use less energy and save you money!
Solar energy is so serious that our government offers tax credits to homeowners who install solar panels to supplement their energy overheads! Why not make the switch today?
These are just some of the many different things you could be doing to live a “greener” life at home! If you are interested in learning how you could help the environment by switching to a energy efficient AC unit we are here to help! Contact us today for more information.
