Has green energy been something you’ve thought about but have never had the chance to learn about? It is easy to feel like going green is just too complicated and too expensive. Modernize your philosophy and your home today through the use of the tips and advice in this article that will help you change how your home uses energy in a very good way.
A simple way to save energy is to close the curtains. Shading the windows with curtains and blinds will keep out the sun in summer and keep the heat from escaping in winter. Doing these things will let you use less air conditioning in the summer. You will save energy, as well as money.
Turn off the kitchen, bathroom, and any other exhaust fans as soon as you no longer need them. Some people leave the fans on for 20 minutes or so, but it is better to leave them on for no longer than five minutes after showering, bathing, or cooking is finished.
Use curtains to assist you in keeping green
If it is summer and you want the room to stay cool, draw the curtains during the day so that the sun doesn’t shine in. If it’s winter, and you want the room to stay warm, open the curtains and let the sun into your room.
