As time goes by, the public is becoming progressively more conscious about how their lifestyle impacts the health and wellbeing of the planet. For this reason (and more), eco-friendly homes have become more common. However, just because the home you purchased wasn’t a “green” home, that doesn’t mean you can’t make some eco-friendly improvements. During construction, try to stick to sustainable materials local to your region. You could also install some brand-new energy-efficient appliances and/or solar panels and keep your HVAC system well-maintained and running as efficiently as possible. Be sure to get rid of your old lightbulbs and invest in some energy-efficient bulbs instead. Contact us for a guide on eco-friendly home improvement.
