Green Eco Home Improvements

The new year usually brings resolution about cutting spending. Consider including home energy efficiency upgrades – a decision that will save money and increase your comfort for as long as you live in your house – among your 2019 resolutions. Here are three ways to get started:

  1.      Energy Audit. Energy auditors test your house to see where you’re losing the most energy and recommend upgrades to improve energy savings and comfort.

  2.      Budget and plan. Prioritize your projects and start with those that bring the greatest saving.

  3.      Quick fixes. Do simple DIY projects – installing LED bulbs, caulking, and weather stripping – that bring immediate savings.
