Live Healthy Be Energy Fit
Get You and Your Home in the Best Shape Ever
July 01, 2013
With summer in full swing, now is a great time to get you and your home in the best shape possible. It's all about living healthy and becoming energy fit.
Your Own Utilities recommends following our community's 95210 initiative. Get 9 hours of sleep, eat 5 fruits and vegetables, limit non-work screen time to 2 hours, get 1 hour of physical activity and opt for 0 sugary drinks and tobacco.
Making these healthy choices will help you reach your personal fitness goals. Plus, there's an extra bonus to getting outside and exercising. While you and are your family are outdoors, you'll be using less energy indoors so you will save on home energy costs.
Also, as you're thinking of fitness, remember to call Your Own Utilities to make your home energy fit. You can sign up for free energy audits, ceiling insulation grants, solar water heater rebates and more.
Here are a few other ways to get your home in better shape:
- Convert to clean and reliable natural gas. You'll love the convenience of this energy-efficient and cost-saving fuel. From instant, cozy heat to precise cooking and long-lasting hot water for showers, you and your family will enjoy numerous benefits each day. Plus, Your Own Utilities offers rebates up to $2,000 on many appliances and systems, including furnaces, water heaters, ranges and more.
- Shift to more energy-efficient living. It could be as simple as shutting off the lights, replacing regular light bulbs with compact fluorescent lights (CFLs) and setting the thermostat to 78 degrees or higher while at home. Also consider replacing old appliances with ENERGY STAR models and take advantage of the many rebates available.
- Instead of throwing items in the trash, recycle or compost as much as possible.
- When shopping for plumbing fixtures, choose water-saving items, such as faucet aerators and water-efficient showerheads and toilets.
So get you and your home in the best shape possible this summer, and enjoy the benefits all year long.
