3 Reasons To Consider A Greener Home This Spring
Posted on March 22nd, 2019 by Devine Bros
Having a ‘green’ home in Norwalk is much easier than you probably realize. Many homeowners are back-footed due to the myths that making the switch to eco-friendly products will cost too much money and time. Whether you’re considering the difference you can make with your cooling, heating, water, gas or building supplies, we want you to know the results are worth any effort you make!
The Value of Your Home
We’ve certainly seen a lot of home buyers excited about the possibility of an eco-friendly home. Sustainable materials are used for green homes, making them much better for the environment. Healthy air and lower utility bills are a nice bonus when added to the mix — who doesn’t like saving a few bucks?! This means whether the project you begin is small or large, you can increase the value of your home with just a few changes. This can be anything from an affordable water saving toilet or shower to solar panels and LED lights.
The Energy Savings
According to the United States Department of Energy, if all homes went green, the country would save approximately $20 billion in energy every year. This is why you can receive discounts when you update your home with options designed to save energy. Starting with your home is becoming one step closer to a greener earth!
The Water Bill
You may not realize how much water is used to run the average home. Green updates will save you money on your water bill, and be cleaner for the environment! If your toilet was constructed prior to 1982, you’re likely using five to seven gallons of water every time you flush. When you replace this with an efficient model you can reduce this to 1.3 gallons per flush — much more for the fish! The savings from this update are nearly instant, and you’ll feel the difference in your wallet as costs are reduced
