The average tax refund last year was around $2500 – that's no small chunk of change! Yesterday was tax day, and we're curious, will you be using your tax refund to green your home?
We think tax returns are a great opportunity to start a green project, here's a few that we think would be easy to do with $2500:
• Get a home energy audit
• Change every remaining incandescent light bulb to compact fluorescent or even LED.
• Install a tankless water heater
• Start a garden
• Replace or repair any inefficient windows
• Buy or repair a bike
Don't forget that any upgrades you make this year may be eligible for the new 2009 Residential Energy Efficiency Tax Credits – double your money!
So, will you be using your tax refunds to go green?
