If you are in the process of remodeling your home, now is the time to go green and save energy! Not only will you be helping the environment but you will also be saving money in doing so– it is a win-win for everyone. Worried about going over budget? It is possible to make your home more energy efficient without breaking the bank. Eco-friendly does not mean you have to purchase high-tech, expensive products. The following is a list of simple products you can choose during your remodel that will help make you home greener without costing a fortune.
#1: Energy-Efficient Insulation
Most of the homes built in the early 2000s and beyond were not insulated appropriately for the climate. Not having the right insulation could be costing you thousands of extra dollars a year to heat and cool your home. It is not only costly but it also wastes an unnecessary amount of energy in the process. By investing in eco-friendly insulation, you can make a positive impact on the environment while keeping more money in your pockets.
#2: Recycled Materials
If you are building a brand new home or remodeling your existing, choosing recycled materials is an easy way to make environmentally-friendly decisions. Today’s market is filled with plenty of recycled material options from insulation, to flooring, and even countertops. You already need these things, why not go green?
#3: Sustainable Flooring
Hardwood remains a favorite for homeowners across the board. If you are wanting to install hardwoods but ones that are eco-friendly, consider bamboo or cork flooring. Bamboo grows fast and in abundance, unlike traditional hardwood that comes from trees that take years to grow. Cork is harvested from living trees and does not cause any damage to the tree. Both options are great choices for your greener home and you are still able to get the look you want.
#4: Non-Toxic Paints & Finishes
Majority of paints and finishes on the market contain Volatile Organic Compounds (or VOCs). In warmer temperatures, these compounds evaporate and can have a negative impact on the air quality both inside and outside of your home. By choosing paints and finishes that do not contain VOCs you can improve the air quality in your home and help minimize the air pollution outside. It is a great way to make your home safer while also making the world a better place.
