Heroes come in all shapes and sizes, and they save the world in a variety of ways. If you’ve visited this site before, you could probably figure out that to me a hero wants to pass this planet down to future generations, making eco-friendly decisions and supporting brands that care for the planet.
Constellation Energy wants us all to save our energy for what really matters. (Pun very intended.) They offer a variety of home and business energy options to fit various budgets, values and needs across the United States. In Texas, Constellation Energy provides services through its subsidiary, StarTex Power.
At StarTex Power, they support household heroes, who are working to save the planet one home at a time. In fact, they have a fun new questionnaire on their website which asks the question, are you a true hero of the house? The hero of the house, in this case, is the person who is making sure that the household is using the lowest possible amount of energy. The questionnaire is a reminder that simple changes can make an enormous difference.
Just imagine the impact we could have if each one of us acted on a few simple changes. The state of Texas alone has a population of almost 28 million and ranks 42nd in the nation with regards to air quality. The average annual electricity cost per Texas household is 26% higher than the national average and among the highest states in the nation. If each household in the state of Texas had a home energy hero, we could dramatically slow down the impact of the environment.
How Household Heroes Reduce Energy Use
No matter what state you live in, energy efficiency can impact the planet as well as your wallet. Simply grab your cape and take the quiz to find out more.
After the quiz, you’ll be provided with a series of challenges that can lower your electricity use and your carbon footprint. For example, planting trees outside can reduce your heating and cooling expenses. You can plant trees that shed their leaves seasonally on the east, west and northwest sides of your home to reduce air conditioning needs by up to 30%.
From unplugging appliances to installing smart thermostats, to upcycling our items, to supporting brands that care about the environment, we could all do our part to drastically reduce our energy use – and lower our heavy carbon footprints. It’s up to us to make a difference. It’s time to stop assuming that our planet is infallible and behave like everyday heroes.
Constellation offers service in numerous states across America to provide a variety of electric services, natural gas energy options, as well as solar energy options and other renewable energy offerings. Along with its subsidiaries such as StarTex Power, they have fixed-rate and variable plans designed to fit every household budget need. They also offer home energy services that include repair assistance with heating, air conditioning, plumbing, electrical and appliances to help reduce your electricity usage.
True household heroes make eco-friendly choices that extend to the outside of your home too! So tie that cape around your neck and let’s do this. Because you too can help make the world a better place.
