4 Easy Ways to Celebrate Earth Day at Home

by Shea Homes Arizona on April 21, 2017

Celebrate Earth Day at Home

Looking for a few easy ways to celebrate Earth Day that doesn’t involve planting a tree or leaving the comfort of your own home? Here are a few ways to embrace energy efficiency this Earth Day. You’ll be doing the planet a favor, and helping your budget too! So give yourself a double dose of green this weekend by checking your home to make sure it is a lean, mean energy efficient machine!

Seal Air Ducts

Check for cracks around windows, doors, and electrical outlets that are located on an exterior wall.

Prevent Leaking

Check sink, dishwasher and refrigerator water lines for leaks or deterioration and replace any items that appear worn. Check water heater or rust, which may indicate a leak.

Check for Cracks

Using incense or a smoke stick can help you find smaller cracks. Watch where the smoke goes to see if any air is escaping your home.

Add weather stripping

Putting weather stripping around doors and windows can save you 10% on your heating and cooling bill and prevent energy from being wasted.

Want to go even further? Update your light bulbs to LED and install a low-flow showerhead. Mother earth will thank you!

It has been a busy year for us here at Shea Homes® Arizona. We opened four new communities: the modern gated community of 24 North in North Phoenix, the beautiful Carino Villas condominiums in Chandler, the luxurious Vantage condos in Ahwatukee, and the Shea 3D community Ambition at Eastmark in Mesa.

And while it’s always exciting to open new communities, the most rewarding part of this business in helping families select, build, and ultimately move into their dream homes.

So after all this activity in 2016, will we be slowing the pace in 2017? Not a chance! In the coming year, we will be opening more Shea Homes communities to meet continued demand, and welcoming even more happy homeowners to the Shea family. Here’s a peek at some of our upcoming activity.

The Reserves – Gilbert
