This Earth Day, consider making a small difference in your home to have a big impact on your community. The items below promote greener living and can help your household decrease its carbon footprint (while save money, too!):
Point Of Use Water Filtration
A point of use water filter will allow you to have healthy, clean, great tasting water from any water source in your home. Install one in your kitchen for water that you can cook with, clean dishes with and fill reusable water bottles with! (Considering that for every six water bottles Americans use, only one makes it to the recycling bin, this can make a BIG difference. Click here to learn more.)
Low Flow Toilets
Toilets that are 10+ years old can use up to 7 gallons of water per flush – that is a lot of wasted water considering that the average person uses the bathroom up to 7 times a day (that’s 49 gallons per person!). By installing a low flow toilet you will only use approximately 1.6 gallons per flush, saving you a lot of money on water usage, and drastically cutting down on the water used by your home!
A programmable thermostat can save the average home up to $180 a year on energy costs by allowing your heating and cooling systems to work less when you want it to – when you are at work, on vacation or asleep at night – cutting down on your energy usage and costs!
New Air Conditioning System Filters
Replacing the filters in your HVAC system every couple of months will keep your equipment running much more efficiently. In fact, new filters can lower the energy consumed by the heating and cooling system by up to 15%! Plus, it keeps the air flowing throughout your home cleaner.
