WHAT YOU CAN DO, WHAT YOU CAN USE

Now that you're back in school...

Rule Your Attic. Did you know that 90 percent of American homes are under-insulated?  This means that 9 out of 10 U.S. homeowners are wasting money on energy bills. As the weather cools down, it's a perfect time to get up in your attic and check insulation levels. Find out how you can Rule Your Attic -- to save energy, save money, increase your home's comfort, and reduce pollution.

Are You SepticSmart?  Protect it and inspect it. Don't overload the commode. Over 25 million American homes use a septic system. Proper septic system maintenance helps keep contaminants from being released, protects public health and the environment, and saves you money on repairs. Learn more about how you can be SepticSmart all year 'round.
