Looking to join the green revolution? As this Forbes.com article points out, it’s not necessary to install expensive solar panels; just improving your home’s energy efficiency would be enough. How do you do it?
- Switch your home’s lighting to compact fluorescent bulbs (CFLs).
- Find out which appliances are using the most electricity and unplug them when they are not in use.
- Install a dual-flush toilet to reduce water use.
- Install spray foam insulation to cut home heating costs.
Forbes.com also points out that these steps not only will cut down your monthly bills, some of them can also be claimed as tax credits next year.
