Energy Efficiency Tips for Earth Day

Today is Earth Day! It is important for us to make the most of our planet. Contrary to popular belief, humans can have a positive impact on the environment! Below are some energy efficiency tips that will help you do just that!
 
  • If you live close enough, ride your bike to work. Not using your car will help you cut down on your carbon emissions.
  • Outdoor air is actually less polluted than indoor air. On a nice spring day, open the windows to let fresh air in.
  • Open the curtains on a sunny day to let natural light into your home. That way, you won't have to turn on the lights.
  • Dry your wet clothes on a clothing line outside. After all, it is a much more energy efficient option than using the dryer!
  • Remember to change the air filters in your HVAC system on a regular basis. 
  • Consider having solar panels installed on your roof.
  • Be sure to close windows and doors when your air conditioner is running.
