Whether you use communal bins or roll out your bins, recycling is an important part of being a renter or homeowner. It saves energy because the products being recycled usually require less processing to turn them into usable materials. However, knowing what is recyclable and what is trash is just as important. #recyclable #recycle #limitwaste #sustainability #energy #cep
Knowing what to recycle is confusing. Here's a look at the process, from store to recycling facility.
A big shout out to everyone who came out to our Fall FUNraising Fair and supported CEP. We had some amazing vendors come out:

Sometimes your utility bill can be frightening hopefully over the course of this month you learned some tips, tricks, and ways to not be haunted by mounting costs. #energyawareness #october #utilitybills #savings #energy #cep
Reducing your water usage, which also reduces the amount of energy needed to purify or heat it--is only part of the solution. Heating water costs the average American family about $400 to $600 a year. That’s the second largest utility expense after heating and cooling. For many homeowners, upgrading to a more efficient water heater can make sense, especially if it’s time for a replacement. #energyawareness #energy #water #wateruse #efficiency #cep

Tour of homes getting to zero energy usage.
Ensure your home is well-insulated. Having a well-insulated home will reduce the amount of energy needed to heat or cool it. Check the insulation around your home, especially in your attic. If your home is not well-insulated, it will trap more heat in the summer, and lose heat in the winter--thus you spend more energy on heating and air conditioning. #energy #energyawareness #efficiency #healthyhome #cep
What You Should Know Sealing air leaks and properly insulating your home are two of the most effective things you can do to reduce heating and cooling costs and to increase home comfort. Sealing air leaks reduces the uncontrolled flow of air into and out of your home. Insulation reduces the transfer...
One way to minimize energy use at home and be more efficient is to use a smart thermostat. They also have multiple sensors that provide a better overall reading of the temperature in your home and heat or cool your home more efficiently than regular thermostats, along with sending you reports about your energy use. #smartthermostat #cep #healthyhome #energyawareness #energy #efficiency
Heating and cooling are the biggest consumers of your home’s energy. Your thermostat’s settings are responsible for almost HALF of your home’s total energy usage! In comparison, your water heater accounts for about 14-18%. That being said, it’s important to take steps toward having a mor...
If you have lots of electronics or appliances that require an electrical outlet, plug them into a power strip. When these items are not in use, you can switch them all off at once to reduce phantom use of power. #healthyhome #efficient #energy #energyawareness #cep
October being Energy Awareness month is only fitting as the last element to a healthy home, that we haven't covered, is efficiency. Installing more efficient lighting by replacing incandescent bulbs with LED lightbulbs, which use up to 75% less energy than incandescent bulbs and come in a variety of shapes and light levels. #healthyhome #healthy #energyefficiency #energy #led #lightbulbs #cep
