In the meantime, here are a few tips on ways you can move towards a carbon-neutral life!

Thermostat Settings

We understand that thermostat setting can be a sensitive topic in many households, however, raising your thermostat by just a few degrees during the sunny seasons in Florida can make a noticeable difference to your utility bills. We recommend keeping your air conditioner between 75 and 78 degrees while your family is at home and at 82 degrees while your house is empty. 

Window Coverings

Using natural light in your home can definitely be an energy saver unless those bright, sunny rays are causing your air conditions to run on overdrive. Keeping the curtains drawn or the blinds closed in rooms with direct sunlight during peak hours can actually end up saving electricity in your home, especially when combined with soft LED lighting. 


Using fans to keep the air moving in your house can make the rooms feel up to 4 degrees cooler than they actually are! If you want to get the most out of the green guide, make sure you keep the fans off in rooms that are not currently occupied to avoid paying for energy that you are not utilizing. 


Washing your clothes in cold water utilizes drastically less power than warm or hot water. You can also take your clothing out of the dryer as soon as it is finished tumbling to save some time and energy ironing. For extra credit, line-dry your freshly washed clothes when you are confident that it won’t be a rainy day.
