More Ways to Save a Little Green by Going "Green" . . .

By
Real Estate Agent with REMAX Premier Realty - The Villages

I thought you might enjoy some more ways to save money by going green that I have come across:

15 Green Projects for Under $500 - I have already insullated my hot water pipes (years ago); now I had better run down and clean my refrigerator coils!

10 Ways to Shrink Your Energy Bills - Although I have done most of these items personally, I would have to say that #5 on this list was probably one of the biggest returns on the dollar - "make your attic more cush."  I simply purchased rolls of insullation at my "local home-improvement store," rolled them in the opposite direction of the existing insulation in the attic, and watched the savings mount up over the past nine years!  One way that you can tell who has really good insulation in their attic is to look at roofs after a snowstorm.  If the snow melts off quickly, it is because of heat loss. 

How Eight Homeowners Saved Over $12,275 on Energy - The first story here is about homeowners who installed a pellet stove.  I did this about five years ago, so I can tell you first hand, Storing all those pellets someplace dry can be a challenge!  I have three cars parked in my two-car garage, plus currently four pallets of pellets.  When fuel was at its highest a few years ago, I actually had 14 pallets stored around the house (yes, I was able to keep them dry).
