Many local utility companies offer energy audits for free – or a nominal fee. Contact your local utility company to see if the service is available, then be ready to talk to clients about what updates may have the best return on investment. Even some lower cost updates can make a huge difference for comfort, energy bills, and/or home resale values.

I recommend investing in LED lighting. It requires much less wattage than the CFL or incandescent light bulbs, which is why LED bulbs are more energy-efficient and longer lasting. According to the US Department of Energy, rapid adoption of LED bulbs would save hundreds of millions of tons of greenhouse gases from entering the atmosphere.

I typically share with clients: Think, act and save. 

  • Think about what that means to you and others. 
  • Act by taking baby steps – change out lightbulbs, watch your water use, recycle, watch how you fertilize. 
  • Save money, energy, the earth, and more.

Differentiate the characteristics and motivations of consumers and match the benefits to what your customers want: cost savings, health, sustainability, and lifestyle. And remember, Rome wasn’t built in a day – each change, when added together, will improve your energy efficiency. Make sure to do your homework & look to the experts for accurate advice.
