Cool Down This Winter

Posted on

As a Conservation Association, Oakvillegreen is always trying to find ways to help “green” our community. We want to give you some easy steps to green your life and start taking actions towards a more sustainable life.

If you are looking for ideas to lower your bills, reduce your energy consumption and ecological footprint;  here is an opportunity. Winter is here for a while and we all want to stay warm, so we tend to overheat our houses, offices, schools, etc. Use your heat wisely and insulate.

Our homes are responsible for an important amount of the carbon dioxide emissions to the atmosphere that are causing climate change. Today you can make a difference by turning down your heating by 1C.    Just by turning your heating down 1C you can save 300kg of carbon dioxide per year and up to 10% off your bill.

If  you want to go one step further, You can install a programmable thermostat and save an estimate of 10% on your heating and cooling costs.
