Save Water is a Win-Win

According to the EPA, the average American family uses more than 300 gallons of water every day, and, on average, approximately 70% of that water is used indoors while 30% is devoted to outdoor water use. During colder months, we tend to spend more time indoors, which can lead to increased water usage around the home. Consider implementing the water-saving tips that follow. You’ll not only save water, which is good for the planet, but also see the added benefit the added benefit of lower monthly water bills. Now, that’s a win-win situation for us all.

In the bathroom:

  • Drop a little food coloring in the toilet tank and if the color shows up in the bowl without flushing, you have a leak.
  • Showers use less water than baths, but keep them short!
  • Replace a faulty toilet with a low-flush model.
  • Turn the tap off while brushing your teeth or shaving.

Healthier PureAir™

Combatting indoor air pollution is a concern for new and old homes alike. New homes tend to have higher concentrations of chemicals, and old homes can be breeding grounds for mold and mildew. All homes, no matter how clean they appear, are contaminated with dirt and dust. In fact, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the air inside the average home is up to five times more polluted than the air outside.

The PureAir system removes pollen, dust mites, bacteria, molds, odors and harmful chemicals from indoor air — and destroys them. The system uses a combination of ultraviolet light and innovative filtration technology to capture and eliminate pollutants, maximizing your home’s indoor air quality (IAQ).

Rest Easier With A Carbon Monoxide Detector

Carbon Monoxide (CO) is the leading cause of death by accidental poisoning. Because it’s odorless and colorless, it can be difficult to detect. Early warning signs of CO poisoning can resemble symptoms of the flu or a cold. Higher levels of poisoning cause dizziness, nausea, severe headaches and mental confusion. CO is released into homes as a result of incomplete combustion of any fuel-burning appliance, including furnaces, gas stoves, clothes dryers, fireplaces, water heaters and space heaters. Improperly vented or poorly maintained appliances are often the culprits CO leaks.

A CO detector will first sound a warning when CO is beginning to build up indoors. If the detector is in full alarm mode, ventilate your home with fresh air and turn off all appliances that could release CO. Call 911 if anyone is exhibiting symptoms of poisoning.
