Greening Your Home

September 5, 2008

Did you know it’s not hard? When I think of greening my home, I think I need special equipment, like solar panels or a windmill…but according to this video, you can reduce your home’s energy consumption by 40 to 50% with simple changes like:

1. Testing the envelope of the home
2. Testing the ducts (the average home loses 30% of its heated air to leaks)
3. Adding insulation
4. Lighting: switching to CFL bulbs
5. Updating the furnace
