You’ve heard that adopting a greener lifestyle in your Angleton, Texas, home will help you save money, but how true is that concept? The truth is that going green does cut household costs, from saving the money you spend on gas and plastic products, to reducing your energy consumption.
Working from home even one day a week reduces your car emissions. Since you’ll be using less gas driving to and from work, you won’t fill up your tank as often. Plus, when you work from home, you probably won’t stop at the coffee shop on your way to work or buy lunch at the downtown deli, which saves you even more.
Nix the Bottled Water
Some people don’t mind tap water, and others prefer the taste of filtered water. Either way, you can save thousands of dollars when you stop buying water bottles. Water bottles cost a family of four over $3,100 a year, while a pitcher filter and filter refills cost about $240. You’ll be throwing away far less plastic, which means less pollution, and you’ll be saving over $2,800 a year when you stop buying bottled water.
Invest in HVAC
Your HVAC system uses a lot of energy, so when you commit to a temperature change inside the house or a new, greener Energy Star HVAC system, you’ll see the savings on your energy bills. The government’s Energy Star website reports that if you install a programmable thermostat and use the right pre-programmed settings, you can save as much as $180 a year. The government also reports that Energy Star HVAC systems save as much as $115 yearly on energy costs.
Even yearly maintenance on your HVAC system helps it run more efficiently, saving you money and reducing your carbon footprint. When you’re ready to install a greener model, our qualified technicians will install it correctly the first time so it can run at peak efficiency and give you lots of savings.
