I feed off this type of reactions by the people that will end up using my design to establish a life style for their family, and I considered myself fortunate to be a part of it.
I want to express my gratitude to all my clients to allowing me to do the job I love.
Make a Difference:
- Use energy-efficient light bulbs and appliances.
- Use your washing appliances at night (washing machine and dishwashers).
- Turn off the water when applying soap while showering.
- Don't over water your grass/ plants.
- Use caulking and weather stripping to seal air leaks. You can reduce your home heating and
cooling needs by up to 20 percent by getting rid of drafts and leaks around windows, doors,
baseboards and attic hatches.
- Lower your thermostat.
- Upgrade the insulation in the walls, basement and attic; doing so can reduce your energy bill
by as much as 30 percent.
On the Road
- Save gas by driving the speed limit and keeping your vehicle well- tuned. Buy the most
energy-efficient vehicle that meets your needs.
- Drive at the posted speed limit – increasing your cruising speed from 100 km/h to
120 km/h will increase fuel consumption by approximately 20 percent.
- Measure the inflation level of your tires once a month. A single under-inflated tire can
increase your vehicle’s fuel consumption by up to 4 percent.
- Don’t idle. Idling for 10 minutes a day can produce about a quarter tonne of CO2 emissions
each year and cost you about $70 in wasted fuel. If you stop for more than 10 seconds,
except in traffic, turn off your engine and save.
- Buy ENERGY STAR® qualified equipment; this will keep your energy costs and GHG
- Turn off your computer (and electronic equipment) when it is not being used for more than
- Walk, bike, or use transit to work if you can.
- Lower your thermostat.
- Minimize the amount of paper you use because printing, photocopying and faxing use energy. Use e-mail more often — it’s quicker, less expensive and healthier for the environment. Also use recycled paper wherever possible.
- Turn off all the lights at night.
Thanks for saving our world.
