Three Easy (and Cost-effective!) Ways to Go Green at Home

Want to make the world a better place and enjoy monthly savings? Implementing green practices at home can help improve the environment, which in turn will enhance your quality of life and reduce energy consumption. The best part? The following green initiatives are both simple and inexpensive:

1. Conduct a Home Energy Assessment – Did you know that most New Yorkers qualify for a FREE or reduced-cost comprehensive home energy assessment? Assessments include a detailed, customized report based on a thorough examination of your home, a visual assessment by a trained and certified auditor and an analysis of your energy bills. The reports will pinpoint the problem areas in your home that are causing the most energy waste, and specific recommendations will be presented so the situation can be remedied.

2. Buy a Faucet Aerator – An aerator will help reduce the amount of water that flows from your faucet by mixing air into the flow of water. This produces a steadier stream of water, giving the feeling of high pressure with less actual water consumption.

3. Install a Programmable Thermostat – A programmable thermostat allows you to customize the heating and cooling of your home, ensuring that you don’t waste money and energy (when used properly). We recommend the Nest Learning Thermostat, which learns your schedule and adjusts its temperature using sensors that detect light and activity – knowing when you’re in the house and when you’re not.
