Here are several suggestions for easy ways to become ‘more green’

  • Switch to compact fluorescent light bulbs. Each bulb, on average, saves $25. in electricity per year. Changing five or more bulbs will save you $100 or more each year. We frequently have sales and promotions on these bulbs. Ask Us.
  • Plug Air Leaks: We suggest that all leaks around windows, doors and in basements be plugged either with caulking or stripping. There are new products on the market that will not only help accomplish this and save you money, but will do it with a green footprint. Ask Us.
  • Reduce Water Use: Add aerators to your sink faucets, and replace your shower head with a low-flow unit. Both of these projects take less than fifteen minutes each, and in less than thirty minutes you can expect to conserve water enough water to save about $100 on your water bill.
    Insulate Hot Water Pipes: Insulating hot water pipes will save you up to 15% on your hot water heating bill. (sound like a good weekend project? Ask Us how!)
  • Consider a Push Mower: More quiet for you and your neighbors, no pollution contributed to the environment, and more exercise for you!
