Green or energy saving tips from various sources can help you jump in rather painlessly, and join the thousands of other folks who have already begun the race of “going green”.



Fight Phantom Power Muggers

One of the easiest tips is to turn off items you’re not using. Unused appliances, and technology devices, even if turned off but still plugged in, can waste enormous amounts of energy!

We call this “phantom power” – meaning power that is used even though we don’t notice it. Trying this tip alone can begin to save you money on your power bill.



Incredible Insulation

Another way to conserve energy is to ensure that you’re not losing heat through the winter. The insulation in your home as well as your window coverings and sealants in your door frames can make a huge difference.

Don't Waste Water

Another simple tip is to conserve water. Limit shower length when possible, and don’t use more water than you need to.

Do you really need to keep the faucet running full blast while you’re brushing your teeth? It’s easy to wet the brush, turn off the water, and then turn back on briefly to rinse.



Wait until you have a full load to run laundry when possible, or, be sure the setting is adequate for the size of the load – not several inches deeper in water than it needs to be.

Actually, clothes get cleaner if they are agitating in a smaller amount of water as opposed to too much water and too little friction of the clothing in the washer!
