FLU SEASON HAS ARRIVED!! The months of September though March are considered the Flu Season! Here are some good health habits to help stop the spread of germs and help keep your

Get vaccinated! Every per- son 6 months of age or old- er should get the flu shot this year!

TIPS TO MAKE YOUR HOME ENERGY EFFICIENT

An average household dedi- cates 11% of its energy budg- et to lighting. Making im- provements to your lighting is one of the fastest ways to cut your energy bills.

Using new lighting technolo- gies can reduce lighting ener- gy use in your home by 50% to 75%.

Use linear fluorescent tubes and energy efficient com- pact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) in fixtures through- out your home to provide high-quality and high- efficiency lighting.

Fluorescent lamps are much more efficient than incandescent (standard) bulbs and last about 6 to 12 times longer.

Linear fluorescent and CFLs cost a bit more than incandescent bulbs initial- ly, over their lifetime they are cheaper because of how little electricity they use.

They will save you about $30 or more in electricity costs over each bulb's life- time.

Producing about 75% less heat, they are safer to oper- ate and can cut home cool- ing costs.

Visit www.energystar.gov to find the right light bulbs for your fixtures. They’re available in sizes and shapes to fit in almost any fixture.
