Add energy efficiency to your New Year's resolutions

Notebook


Now that the holidays have concluded and we begin to write our list of New Year's resolutions, remember to include energy efficiency (preferably just above losing that Christmas weight gain). Not only will becoming energy efficient help conserve energy, it can also help you save on your monthly energy bill. Investing wisely in home improvements can provide long-term savings. Additionally, many ENERGY STAR-qualified products purchased in 2011 are eligible for tax credits. Information on these tax credits and the ENERGY STAR-qualified products can be found on the ENERGY STAR website.

Also, don't forget to contact your energy provider for tips or assistance on how to conserve energy.

Being energy efficient is a great way to begin the New Year!
