The most basic steps to going green are things you can incorporate into your everyday routine, such as:

  • Unplugging home electronics when you’re not using them.
  • Cleaning your furnace filter every two months can increase its efficiency by 50 percent.

Other green solutions to consider are:

  • Use the sun’s energy by installing solar panels on your home to obtain either all or part of your home’s energy.
