Seal It

Plug, insulate, replace, repair, caulk, or seal to make your home as leak-proof as possible.

Appliances Matter

Purchase Energy-Star certified appliances.

Save Water

Look for an instant or tankless water heater, and make sure your faucets are all low-flow, so you keep the water bill down as well.

Keep It Steady

Have a smart thermostat installed to automatically find efficiencies and garner savings from your heating and cooling bill.

Indoor Plants

Live plants around your home act as natural air filters, and some plants are particularly effective absorbers of harmful pollutants emitted from carpets and furniture. If you are selling your home, a few beautiful indoor plants can also add some color to your home.

Install a Carbon Monoxide Detector

Carbon monoxide is an odorless gas, and exposure to it can be deadly. To prevent carbon monoxide poisoning, pick-up a detector at your local hardware store.

Check for Radon

Radon is a radioactive gas that is naturally present in the soil, and it can enter your home through cracks in your foundation. According to the National Academy of Sciences, radon is also the second leading cause of lung cancer in the US. Radon test kits are available at most hardware stores.
