    How “green” is your home?

    There are simple changes you can make in your home to become more green. Clear The Air would like to share a few simple tips on how to impact the environment in a positive way.

    • Change your light bulbs. Trade out those incandescent light bulbs for compact fluorescent bulbs which save energy.
    • Use energy-efficient appliances. If you need to replace an appliance, replace it with an appliance that has an Energy Star label to save energy and money. You may be eligible for a tax credit when you use energy-efficient appliances in your home.
    • Wash full loads of laundry and dishes. Waiting until you fill your washing machine and dishwasher before you run them will save energy, water, and power.
    • Recycle those old electronics instead of throwing them away in the trash. Chemicals and heavy metals from electronics that are thrown away just sit in the ground.
    • Pull the plug on your electronics. Even after you turn your TV off it continues to use power if it is still plugged in. By unplugging it, you can save energy and money.
    • Get your food from local farmer’s market. You will not only have fresher produce, but you will save on the energy and fuel costs when you buy your produce at local farmer’s markets.
    • Fix your leaky faucets immediately. A leaky faucet or shower can waste gallons of water a day which not only a waste of our water resources, it is also money down the drain.
