Green Tip of the Summer

With the summer air starting to heat up, people’s first response is to turn on the air conditioning. Unfortunately, air conditioners accounts for 14 percent of America’s home electricity use, and most of that electricity comes from coal. Investing in an energy efficient air conditioner is one effective way to conserve energy in the summer time. New air conditioners come labeled with an Energy Efficiency Rating (EER), a standard that lets you calculate how much electricity the air conditioner will consume.

By sustainably changing how you cool your house, you will help America conserve energy and save yourself money in the process!
