Making your Home & Pocketbook a Little GREENER!

Our weather has been a little unseasonable lately, but unfortunately it won't last forever. Here is a list of inexpensive things that you can do to save money and be more energy efficient at home:

  • Eliminate cold drafts by air sealing your home with caulking and weather-stripping. 25 - 40% of a home's heat loss can be prevented by proper air sealing.
  • Use energy efficient lighting such as compact fluorescents.
  • Consider adding insulation, particularly in the attic.
  • When buying new windows select energy efficient features. Look for models that are filled with argon gas and that have a low "e"-coating.
  • Consider upgrading your furnace, or even switching to a cheaper fuel source.
  • Use EnerGuide labels to help you buy energy efficient appliances.
  • Unplug that second fridge that you never use.
  • Install a programmable thermostat and give your furnace a break while you're not home.
  • Install a water saving showerhead.
  • Change your furnace filter once a month.
  • Install a humidifier on your furnace.
  • Fix leaky faucets - a dripping tap can waste up to 160 litres of water per day.
