1. The first step to taking a whole-building energy efficiency approach is to
find out which parts of your building use the most energy. A home or business energy
audit will pinpoint those areas and suggest the most effective measures
for cutting your energy costs. You can conduct a simple home energy
audit yourself, contact your local utility, or call an independent
energy auditor for a more comprehensive examination. (Contact
Greener Country directly if your home or business would like a low-cost
energy audit by a trained professional expert 1-877-680-6010).
Check for holes or cracks around your walls, ceilings, windows, doors,
light and plumbing fixtures, switches, and electrical outlets that can
leak air into or out of your home. Draft dodgers prevent leaky drafts.
We suggest Titebond's Green Choice adhesives and caulks will plug the cracks and
holes using low-VOC, LEED compliant materials.
3. Study your family's lighting needs and use patterns, paying special
attention to high-use areas such as the living room, kitchen, and
outside lighting. Look for ways to use lighting controls-like occupancy
sensors, dimmers, or timers-to reduce lighting energy use, and replace
standard (incandescent/heat wasting) light bulbs and fixtures with compact or
standard fluorescent lamps. Greener Country specializes in the hard to find CFL bulbs.
