1. Call New Age Contractors to come and switch your old outdated bulbs to compact fluorescent light bulbs: these bulbs are now available to fit a wide range of light fixtures, and they use just a quarter of the electricity of regular incandescent bulbs. Not only will these bulbs help save the environment they will also save you money. Still not sold? Fluorescent light bulbs even last ten times longer than typical light bulbs!

2. Stop leaks: One of the most effective, and proven ways to cut down on the amount of energy you are using is to plug, insulate, repair, caulk, or seal to make your home as leak-proof as possible. This process will also save you copious amounts of money on your monthly energy bills.

3.Another way to maximize your home's efficiency is to encapsulate the crawlspace; fortunately, we specialize in crawlspaces! This technique has been proven to save money on heating and cooling bills and will prevent you from having to call us for costly repairs in the future!

4.Switch to energy efficient appliances: Old appliances can cost you hundreds of dollars every month on your energy bill because they require so much power to run and are not worth keeping. Go to www.energystar.gov to find certified appliances that will use less energy, and then visit your local Lowes Home Improvement Store to pick out your appliances! After you've picked out the perfect appliances to match your home, give us a call, and we can install them 843-202-5024.

5.Choose composting: As a country, we throw away billions of pounds of food, and it produces methane gas when it sits in landfills. Reduce your carbon footprint by composting food scraps, in a backyard composting bin.

6.Reduce water use: Install aerators on your faucets and switch to low-flow shower heads. Additionally, consider possibly cleaning your clothes in cold water and then air-drying them to help save energy and money.
