Why go green?Question 1By: Zach MyersThere are many benefits of becoming greener. Benefits of going green include having your energy bill go down, the environment being safe, and people being healthy. (“ why go green “). “One of the most evident benefits of going green is that it can help cut costs (“benefits of going green“). Lastly, green living refers to saving the earth’s ways of circulating objects and the natural elements inside the earth (“ benefits of going green “). The benefits of going green outweigh the challenges blocking us to become green.

Question 3 By: Anna Caruso and Adriana MorenoOur group will help conserve the problem of heating and cooling in our school. We also know our solutions to this problem will work. Each year, an average home’s/building’s line of energy, greater than 47%, goes to heating and cooling (utilities)(‘’Tips:Heating and Cooling’’). Also, $180 is the estimated amount you could save if you use a programmable thermostat correctly in a building, says the Environment Protection Agency (Brown). In addition, Emissions will be smaller and your bill will be too! You can reduce the bill by 30% by having proper equipment including, recommended installation, air sealing, and energy-saving programs for thermostats. These products should be maintained with maintenance and upgrades(‘’Tips:Heating and Cooling’’). Some other ways to improve your health and the environment is to have your HVAC system tuned up yearly, seal your heating and cooling ducts, change your filter, install a programmable thermostat,and checking your roof installation (Bawden-Davis). Next, ‘’Each degree of outside average below the base is on heating degree-day’’.’’Degree day is a unit of measure used to estimate the fuel and power requirements in heating and cooling a building. Lastly, the checking and adjusting of the thermostat should be applied as needed(‘’Energy Saving Ideas for K-12 Schools’’). Our group’s solutions to the problem, of spending too much on heating and cooling and how to conserve it, will with no doubt solve this problem in our school.

Question 2By: Jordan EspinozaAt WGMS, we have identified the problem of heating and cooling. The problem of spending too much on heating and cooling is very much worth solving. At school there is very little insulation around the windows. We know this because the closer you get to the windows it gets colder. WGMS is probably spending very much on heating near the windows because they need to blast warmth there to get it nearly the same temperature as the rest of the room. " When we conserve energy and resources by not wasting electricity,we help to reduce the amount of money that needs to be spent on energy and resources ("benefits of going green"). Benefits of going green include having your energy bill go down, the environment being safe, and people being healthy. (" Why go green "). The problem we are solving in our school is spending too much on heating and cooling.
