Randolph County, NC -- With every hammer and nail, they build home and make dreams come true for people in need of a place to call home.
Habitat For Humanity of Randolph County isn't building any kind of homes, they're building energy efficient homes.
Wanda Pegg, with Habitat for Humanity of Randolph County, and Danny Mull, with Energizer, stopped by the Good Morning Show Tuesday. Here's their energy tips they shared with us on the Good Morning Show:
During Construction/Making Home Updates:
- Install water-saving faucets and appliances to reduce unnecessary water use.
- Plug all seams, cracks and openings to the outside with weather stripping and caulking to help minimize heating and cooling costs.
- Turn off the lights when you leave a room and unplug electronics, battery chargers and other equipment when not in use. Taken together, these small items can use as much power as your refrigerator.
- Look for lighting products with LED technology- they last longer and emit less heat than traditional incandescent bulbs.
