Reduce the Amount of Energy Used in Your Home
Another way you can keep the energy you spend in your home where it belongs is by updating your windows. Cheaper or older windows typically are not 100 percent sealed, even when they are completely shut. This means that it is likely that you are losing a significant portion of your air-conditioned (or heated) air without even realizing it. By replacing your windows, you will further reduce the amount of energy used to keep your home at the temperature you prefer.
Go Out Into the Community
Going green is a twofold task — not only is it important to make your home more environmentally friendly, but it is also critical to spread the information among your community. By getting to know people and sharing your passion for sustainable living, you can help counteract the effects of climate change today.
