Living Sustainably

Practice sustainability to conserve our resources, energy and money. To cut back on energy usage, here are just a few ideas:

  1. Insulate pipes and your water heater
  2. Replace your light bulbs with CFLs or LEDs
  3. Use a pool cover
  4. Install a solar attic fan
  5. Use a smart thermostat
  6. Install energy efficient windows
  7. Put all of your media/tv related plugs (set-top box, DVD, flat screen, etc.) on a single power strip, and turn off when not in us
  8. Get Energy Star appliances (and most likely qualify for a rebate!)
  9. Go Solar!
