Save Our Earth and Improve Air Quality
Do your part… help reduce emissions and stop global warming.
Here are some easy tips on what you can do and how much carbon dioxide you can actually save.
Recycle – Recycling just ½ of normal household waste can save 2400 pounds of carbon dioxide per year.
Plant a tree – Believe it or not, over 1 ton of carbon dioxide will be absorbed by a single tree over its lifetime.
Use less hot water – You can do this by installing a low-flow shower head in the bath and a water-saver flush kit in your toilet. Doing this will save thousands of litres of water per year. Also you can tell your teenage kids that 30 minutes in the shower will get them no cleaner that a 10 minute shower!
Change a light – To save 150 pounds of carbon dioxide in a year switch from the regular incondescent bulb to the compact flourescent bulb.
Adjust your thermostat – Moving your thermostat up and down 2 degrees in the summer and winter will save about 2,000 pounds of carbon dioxide. Better yet, have us install a programmable thermostat for you.
Being part of the solution will make anyone feel good. If everyone could be on the same page, doing these simple tasks would go a long way towards making our planet a better place to live. Remember, it’s the only planet we have. Or is it?
Improving Your Indoor Air Quality
Have your air ducts professionally cleaned every two to three years. A thorough air duct cleaning in your home will help you and your family breathe easier.
Keep the air filters in your furnace and cooling system clean. This is crucial for the system’s optimimum performance. Clean air filters allow your HVAC system to operate much more efficiently, which in turn, saves you energy.
Consider installing additional clean air devices such as UV Lights or a central HEPA air filtration system. 🙂Share this:
