  • Use Reclaimed Wood For Flooring

Instead of cutting down more green for your wood floors, reclaim wood that’s already been cut. While prices vary depending on they type of wood and finish, you can get a distinct and conversational piece that no one else will have.

  • Install A Programmable HVAC Thermostat

This is something you can easily install quickly on your own. Buy a programmable thermostat at any Home Depot or Lowe’s store for around $50, shut off power to the room you’ll be replacing it in, remove the old one and connect the wires to the new one.

Finished! Now you won’t have to worry about remembering to turn the air down at night and you’ll save money monthly.

  • Replace Old Kitchen Appliances

If your old refrigerator or dishwasher is more than 11 years old, then consider replacing them with new energy efficient models. Buy appliances that have solid Energy Star labels, as these appliances have passed strict energy requirements.

While this upgrade might cost you some money up front, you’ll quickly be conserving energy and leaving more green in your savings account. Don’t get pinched this St. Patrick’s Day!
