Pumpkin spice, cozy blankets, and crisp nights can only mean one thing: Fall has arrived! While we all hate to say goodbye to the warm summer days, the change of seasons bring about a completely new set of activities and enjoyment. If you’re like me, one of your favorite activities is decorating for the changing seasons. Whether it’s pumpkins galore or a sea of Christmas trees, these next few months encourage us to get our creative juices flowing. Our home décor is a great place to express and display our style. Inside and outside decorations are equally as beautiful, but there is something special about a dark night lit up by a light adorned home. Whether you keep your lighting modest or are the showstopper on your block, we have some tips that can help save you money while still letting your lights shine bright.
Today is Energy Efficiency Day, which happens to occur during the Energy Awareness month of October! According to the Energy Efficiency Website – “The Energy Efficiency Day message is simple: “Save Money. Cut Pollution. Create Jobs.” Since the inaugural Energy Efficiency Day in 2016, this annual awareness event has been supported by hundreds of prominent organizations, companies, government agencies and others. Our goal is to share tips, tools and stories that promote the multiple benefits of energy efficiency, from lower costs to healthier homes. Energy efficiency is the cheapest, quickest way to meet our energy needs, cut consumer bills and reduce pollution. Energy efficiency is also an economic engine, supporting over two million jobs nationwide in manufacturing, construction and other fields – most of which can’t be outsourced overseas.”
