4. Live Energy Wise
While we’re on the subject of being energy efficient, not only can you change how you light your home, you can change your home itself. How you manage the heat gain and heat loss of your home can make a difference not only to the environment but to your bank balance as well. Having the right insulation for your type of home is crucial.
And your windows are not just something to look out of, having old windows are responsible for 25 to 30 percent of residential heat gain and heat loss. So, it might be time to invest in some new ones. You might pay today but you’ll save in the long term.
