If you watch the news or spend any time scrolling though social media, chances are, you’ve seen and heard a great deal from Greta Thunberg lately. The 16-year-old climate and environmental activist has much to say about global energy use, and she’s not the only one.
But for many of us, making any sort of significant changes to our daily life can seem overwhelming. Yet imagine if each of us simply made small changes – like using more energy efficient appliances and lighting in our homes – the impact could be enormous.
For example, did you know that simply replacing your home’s five most frequently used light fixtures or bulbs with models that have earned the ENERGY STAR, can save you $75 each year? Not to mention this simple change ensures that you are using up to 80% less energy than traditional lighting. If we all did that, think of the impact on our nation’s total energy consumption and use that would be!
If you’d like to be more environmentally conscious but aren’t sure where to start, give us a call. We can provide a thorough walkthrough of your home to find ways that you can reduce your energy consumption – saving you money, and reducing your carbon footprint, one small change at a time.
