Green-up for St. Paddy's Day

Hey lads and lasses, homeowners are saving money while also choosing energy alternatives that are better for the human and natural environments! Make 2019 the year that you do, if you haven't already. Significant financial and energy savings can be achieved through through implementing the results of a home energy audit by a qualified professional, investing in modern heating and cooling systems, installing solar, and more. Maybe even go Net-Zero, but not every energy efficiency and conservation measure is a an expensive proposition -- save some green while being green!

 . . . in the yard with lawn irrigation, but it comes with a steep price. Although our water rates still remain among the lowest in Westchester County, they have increased for 2019 in order to support continuing water infrastructure needs. Lawn irrigation drives peak summer usage in Scarsdale -- and high bills. Make sure your irrigation system doesn't leak and use technology to avoid unnecessary irrigation. Also, reduce consumption through converting turf grass to native plantings, using grass and leaf mulching, and implementing other cost-saving strategies.
