Green Hints - Get Some Fresh Air

Many homes, especially new construction homes, are built so air tight that they do not allow fresh air or outside circulation. This can cause an unnatural build up of toxins in the home, especially if you are still using commercial cleaning supplies.

The next time the outside temperature is pleasant (between 65F and 75F), turn off the lights if possible, open the windows and blinds, and turn off the A/C unit. Windows should be opened and closed to take advantage of the upward movement of warm air and cross ventilation of the room, especially at night. (In hot and humid climates like Houston special attention should be given to keep inside humidity at a comfortable level.)

You will save money on electricity and your home energy costs. A side benefit is that you will also lower the toxicity in your home.
