Are you a new homeowner looking for ways to save money and go green at the same time? Owning a home can be expensive, but taking the following tips into consideration can save you money and help the environment at the same time.
-First off, make sure to check your attic’s insulation. See if there is enough insulation, and if not, install more.
-Conserve energy and make sure to lower your hot water heater’s temperature to 120 degrees Fahrenheit.
-Keep the air circulating in your home by installing ceiling fans in each room.
-Make sure that any exposed water pipes are wrapped with insulation.
