How Going Green Saves Money

Seal Windows and Doors
The average house loses up to 20% of it's heat or air conditioning from leaky ducts and drafts from windows and doors. If sealed, you could save 30% on your utility bills.

Use Thick Insulation
You will save energy costs if your home's insulation is at least 6 inches, or your heating/cooling systems are less than 10 years old.

Unplug Small Devices
Unplugging chargers, small appliances and devices when not using them can save 5% of your energy bill.



                                                           Take an energy audit to find more ways to save!
