Did you know that Maryland, in 2007, was listed in Forbes.com as the fifth “greenest” state in the US? We can all take pride in our environmentally friendly efforts and while it drives to continue the reduction of overall energy consumption, the inflation of global temperatures is relentless as well. Based on our results thus far, it’s clear that we have the power to make a difference for the environment.
While electricity is a daily necessity especially for home use, there are always ways to reduce your consumption without affecting your overall level of comfort. The amount you spend on energy obviously has a significant impact on your household budget and your family’s overall financial security. Fortunately, we at Blair Construction know how to help you and your family cut down on your electricity bills.

Windows can also account for a significant percentage of your heating bill in the winter, as cold air can infiltrate into the home through leaky windows and warm air escapes, making your heating system run more. And during the summer, your air conditioner must work harder to cool hot air from sunny windows. If you are replacing or installing windows, doors or skylights, you can reduce energy costs by installing energy-efficient windows, doors, and skylights in your home. Look for ENERGY STAR Windows, Doors, and Skylights.
