Residential buildings account for 26 percent of Arlington County’s greenhouse gas emissions. Every time you buy a home appliance, tune up your heating system, or replace a burned-out light bulb, you’re making a decision that affects the environment.

The average American household spends nearly $2,000 per year on energy used in the home, but $200-$500 of that is likely being wasted due to air leaks and outdated heating and cooling systems. If you are an apartment or condo dweller, live in a single family household, or manage a property, there are many things that you can do around your home to save energy and money.

Whether you live, work, or play in Arlington there’s a way for you to bring sustainability with you!
