¨ Insulate - If your walls aren’t insulated have an insulation contractor blow cellulose into the walls. Bring your attic insulation up to snuff.
¨ Replace aging, inefficient appliances. Even if the appliance still has a few useful years left, replacing it with a top efficiency model is generally a good investment that will save you money down the road.
¨ Upgrade leaky windows. It may be time to replace them with energy-efficient models or to boost their efficiency with weather-stripping and storm windows.
¨ Have your heating and cooling systems tuned up in the fall and spring. Duct sealing can also improve the energy efficiency and overall performance of your system.
¨ Improve your landscape to give your house shade in the summer and provide a wind-break in the winter. Both will help your house stay cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.¨ Know that you are making a difference! You should be able to tell in the savings in your energy bill that you are consuming less energy and helping the environment!
