Make the Right Green Changes!

Many homeowners have decided to start making green changes to their homes. While this can be beneficial, making the wrong green changes can end up costing you more.

If you're looking to make green changes to manage your energy costs, look into these three things to help you get the most for your money:

1. Seal and insulate duct-work that runs through unheated spaces. By insulating rooms like the garage or the attic, you can improve your heating system by 20%!

2. Invest in a programmable thermostat. You can save an average of 8% on your energy bill by having your thermostat programmed to certain temperatures throughout the day, especially when you aren't home.

3. Seal air leaks. Air can leak out of your doors and windows if they aren't sealed and caulked properly. This lost air can cost you an extra 10% on your energy bill.

Remember, these home changes will come at some expense, but done properly they will save you tons of money in the long run!
