How to Go Green in Your Home

By: Danny Lipford

In order to make the transition to eco-friendly green living, it’s best to start by increasing the energy efficiency and indoor environmental quality of your home. Some ideas include:

  • Increase the amount of insulation.
  • Install energy efficient windows and doors.
  • Replace existing light bulbs with CFLs (compact fluorescent bulbs).
  • Install a programmable thermostat on your heating/cooling system.
  • Ride a bike rather than driving your car.
  • Plant an organic vegetable garden in your yard.

These may seem like small changes, but they will save a great deal of energy and provide a healthier lifestyle in the long run. Watch this video to find out more.
