Waste and the Environment
We hear much talk about doing our part to protect the environment and how we should try to reduce our “carbon footprint”. What does that really mean, and how can we really make a difference?
We can do our part by making small changes to conserve energy and not add to needless carbon emissions that undermine our environment.
According to the US Department of Energy, cooling and heating our home uses more than energy dollars than any other system in our home. The Department of Energy states that in most cases, 45% of our utility bill goes for heating and cooling. New double pane energy efficient windows can make a huge difference.
