Many people are interested in the environment and going green. I also know that many people are struggling with money issues and may think that it would cost money to be environmentally friendly.
But the fact is there are a lot of things that can be done to help the environment that can also save you money.
You can go as big or small as you want when it comes to being green. You can buy organic foods, buy totally green environmentally friendly household cleaners, use reusable bags, etc.
One of the biggest ways you can save money and the planet is to help cut down on the cost of heating and cooling your home. That's why it makes sense to target these areas in your efforts to save money and be environmentally responsible.
Saving money on your utility can be as easy as making sure your home is wrapped up tight and you aren't losing all your heated air to the outside.
Make sure you have adequate insulation and that you don't have gaps in doors and windows. You can easily add more insulation and window insulating kits to make these areas of your home more energy efficient.
Also make sure your heating and cooling unit is working at peak performance by having them inspected every year by a professional. And don't forget to keep the filters clean by changing them at every month during heating season.
Many people will use either solar power, wind power, or a combination of both as renewable energy sources to provide some of their own electricity needs. Both have their good and bad points. It's up to you to decide which ones will work best for you, your home and your overall goals for going green.
