ENERGY

  • Most Homes Leak! Because of this Tight Construction, Insulation, and High Performance Windows are Key! 
  • Check for Holes and Gaps in Walls, Roofs, Foundations, Doors and Windows 
  • Weather Stripping and Caulking Can Reduce Your Heating Bill By 10-25% 
  • Insulation is the Least Expensive “Insurance” to Reduce Winter Heat Loss and Summer Heat Gain Energy 
  • Efficient Appliances; Look for Energy Star Labels When Purchasing Appliances to Help The Environment AND Save Money! 
  • Replace Old Incandescent Bulbs With Compact Fluorescent Bulbs One CFL Can Save $15 Annually (Rocky Mountain Institute) 
  • Install a Programmable Thermostat

RECYCLING

  • Salvage or Donate All Eligible Scrap/Waste Materials from Construction or Remodeling - Minimize What's Dumped 
  • Recycle your Newspapers, Glass, & Cans

AIR

  • Use a Whole House Integrated Air Filtration System with a HEPA Filter 
  • Choose Cleaning Products That Don't Contain Toxic Chemicals 
  • Select Paints and Wood Finishes With Few or No VOC's (volatile organic compounds) 
  • Organic Landscaping: Look For Organic Natural Fertilizers and Pest Control Products. 
  • Eliminate Harsh Pesticides

WATER

  • Install Low Flow Plumbing Fixtures (toilets, showerheads). They Save Water and Keep Money From Going Down The Drain
  • In the Spring/Summer, water before 10:00 a.m. or after 6:00 p.m. so that there is less water evaporation.
