Are you a resolution maker? Yay, or nay, 2024 is a great year to get serious about reducing your home’s pollution. We’ve narrowed our New Year resolutions to a 5-step to-do list to downsize our homes’ carbon footprint–what’s on your list?

🔲 1. Have a Home Energy Audit:

Discover areas that need upgrading, insulation, or repair to reduce energy consumption and environmental impact. Energy.gov has great resources on how to find an auditor in your area and who to contact.

🔲 2. Replace the Old Furnace with a Heat Pump:

Let’s get real: do you know how old your furnace is? If it’s time to replace it, upgrading to a heat pump will improve heating efficiency, reduce energy bills, increase home air quality, and eliminate the need to burn gas in your home.

🔲 3. Upgrade to LED Bulbs:

LED bulbs are energy-efficient and have a longer lifespan than traditional incandescent bulbs. Making this switch not only saves energy but also reduces the frequency of bulb replacements. This is the cheapest, easiest, no-excuse improvement!

🔲 4. Replace my Gas Guzzler with an EV + EV Home Charger:

Electric Vehicles are more affordable and eco-friendly than ever. Oh, and the savings increase when you charge your EV with solar power and take advantage of tax credits and rebates to make the switch. Our team is happy to help you find the best incentives and hardware to bring the benefits of an EV upgrade to your home.

🔲 5. Add Solar to My Home:

Ahhh, the sun! It’s a plentiful renewable energy source. Adding solar lowers your electrical bill, increases your home’s value, and gives you independence from the grid. Oh yeah, don’t forget about the tax incentives, too!
