St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner and it’s the perfect time to turn everything green, including your home. By going green you help the environment and can save money on your utility bills.
Use Less Paper
Go green by using less paper. Opt-out of paper catalogs, get rid of notepads and use travel mugs instead of paper travel cups. You can go digital with your mail and use dry erase boards to reduce the amount of paper you use in your home.
Upgrade your Flooring
If you are considering a home renovation, green your floors by using bamboo or repurposed woods. Bamboo is environmentally friendly and repurposed woods means less use of natural resources.
You can go green by reducing the amount of plastics you use around the home. When you go to the grocery store don’t get plastic sandwich bags, grocery sacks, plastic cups and gallon milk containers.
ENERGY STAR Appliances
By replacing your home appliances with energy-efficient ones you can give your home a modern look and feel while reducing the amount on your electric bill. It is recommended that if your appliances are more than 10 years old you should upgrade to an ENERGY STAR certified option.
Flip the Switch
Make your home green by cutting the power. Be sure to turn off lights in rooms you are not using. You can also switch to solar power to reduce the amount of electricity you use in your home. From all of us at NICOL Climate Control & Construction , your comfort company, we hope you have a happy and energy efficient St. Patty’s Day!
