How Can You Commit to a Greener Year?

If you’re looking to make a difference, 2021 is the year to start! The beginning of a new year is always a great time to start making some positive changes, break old habits, and start the new year on the right foot.

Here are a few ways that you can commit to a greener year:

Going Green in Your Home

Get a Home Energy Audit

One of the best ways to stay on track with your home’s energy footprint is by getting a home energy audit. An audit will help you learn how much energy you are using in your home. Once your audit is complete, you can decide what steps you should take next to commit to a greener lifestyle!

Start by Upgrading to Energy Star Appliances

When you upgrade to an Energy Star appliance, you’re not only reducing your home’s energy consumption, but you’re also saving money. That’s right! Going green can save you money in the long run.

Turn the Lights Off!

One of the easiest and cost-free ways to save energy is simply turning the lights off when you leave a room. It may take some time to get used to, but as long as you’re mindful, you’ll turn it into a habit in no-time.

Believe it or not, this simple change can reduce your greenhouse gas emissions by .15 pounds per hour!

Recharge Instead of Replace

It’s worth making the switch to rechargeable batteries because they supply more than 50 times the energy used to make them. On the other hand, once a disposable batterie is dead, it’s done for good.

Switching to a rechargeable battery will help save you time, energy, and money!

Adjust Your Heating System

One of the best ways to decrease your carbon emissions is by changing your thermostat by a few degrees. Plus, it’s an easy way to help you save money on your next gas bill!
