How to Celebrate Earth Day

Happy Earth Day from Wahl Family Heating, Cooling & Plumbing!

Each year we celebrate Earth Day on April 22nd, the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement. 46 years later, the national holiday continues to inspire and challenge us to make our lives more environmentally friendly. Here are a few ways you can celebrate Earth Day this year and give back to the environment for a more sustainable future.

How to Celebrate Earth Day with Wahl:

Improve Your Plumbing

  • Find & Fix Leaky Faucets – Check your kitchen and your bathroom for faucet leaks. Although drips may seem insignificant, they can waste gallons of water each year. Take a few minutes to make a simple change to your indoor plumbing and improve your water-efficiency.
  • Install Water-Efficient Fixtures – How old are the plumbing fixtures in your home? New showerheads, faucets, and toilets are more water-efficient than older models. You can save water, money and the environment all at the same time.

Improve Your Air Quality

  • Caulk & Weather-Strip – Caulk and weather-strip around all of the windows and doors to your home. This will improve the energy efficiency of your home by keeping cool, air-conditioned air indoors and hot summer air outdoors all season long.
  • Change Your Filters – There are filters in your HVAC system that catch dust, dirt and other materials that flow through your ducts. However, these filters can become dirty and clogged over time, reducing the efficiency of air flow and of your HVAC system overall. Change your air filters this spring so that your air conditioning system is ready for the summer months.
