San Ramon Realtor Jason Kerner Offers Eco-Friendly Money Saving Tips from Zillow

Eco-Friendly Home Updates That Save You Green  happy-family-629634116

BY VERA GIBBONS 

Invest in home improvements that benefit the environment (and your budget) year-round.

Each year, Americans save billions of dollars by employing energy-saving measures and investing in energy-efficient homes. Some upgrades gettyimages-182491709-thermostat-burwellphotography— like Energy Star appliances, new hot water heaters, or geothermal pumps — can be pricey upfront, but there are plenty of small, inexpensive updates that will make a big difference in your budget over time. Here are some places to start.

Go low-flow

Thousands of gallons of water go down the drain every day. Toilet flushing and showering are the two biggest culprits. One solution is to upgrade your home’s plumbing fixtures so you use less water to accomplish the same task.

Low-flow fixtures, which are both inexpensive and easy to install, can reduce your home water consumption by as much as 50 percent, and save you up to $145 a year on electricity, according to Energy Star.

Insulate, insulate, insulate

Upgrading your home with energy-efficient insulation is one of the quickest energy payback projects you can undertake. If your house doesn’t have enough insulation (and many homes don’t, especially those built before 1980), bringing it up to current standards will not only make it more comfortable all year long, but you’ll save money — anywhere from 10 to 50 percent on your heating and cooling bills.

Consult the Department of Energy’s ZIP code specific recommendations for the right amount of insulation for your climate.go-green-01-resized-600

Use compact fluorescent light bulbs

Yes, fluorescent bulbs are more expensive that regular bulbs, but each bulb can save up to $40 over the lifetime of the bulb, and they last 10 times longer than conventional bulbs.

Install a programmable thermostat

Did you know that the average household spends about $2,000 annually on energy bills, and that close to half that figure can be attributed to heating and cooling?

Enter the programmable thermostat. When used properly (don’t be intimidated!), this little gadget, which you reset when you’re asleep or away from your home, can pay for itself in a matter of months. Annually, you’re looking at saving up to $150 or more.

San Ramon Valley Council of PTAs- Champion Volunteers

San Ramon is lucky to have an active and well organized Council of PTAs.  yhnsbrwYQVVFXSK-800x450-noPad

The San Ramon Valley Unified School District is an Award Winning School District because of many reasons. Nothing is more impressive than the groups of dedicated parents volunteering in the classroom, fundraising for technology, hosting healthy habit programs, spearheading special needs and diversity events to better the lives of our youth.  Along the way, many members find life long friendships and enjoy the active opportunity to give back to our community within the PTA experience.

Visit the San Ramon Council of PTAs website at:  https://srvcpta-ca.schoolloop.com/ to learn more about this excellent organization.  The Council addresses many educational and social issues including Health and Wellness, Inclusion and Diversity, Special Needs and Leadership Development.  At the school level, parent volunteers have helped build a model PTA organization that inspires community interaction and helps increase the resources for our students.  The PTA supports amazing events like the Street Smart Program, Reflections Art, Assemblies, Music and Theater Productions, sports, and more.  All of these events require parent participation for maximum success.  images 20150354f7d15c69d39

It is my impression that the San Ramon Valley enjoys award winning schools because of the passionate help from our parents.  In addition, our schools benefits from the local businesses that support our schools and youth programs through donations and sponsorship.  Working together, we have helped build a remarkable community.  Thank you for all you do!
