What is Green?It's about the actions you take and the standards you keep. A Green Home reflects a mindful approach to building and remodeling. The basic principles of green building are simple; conserve natural resources, increase energy efficiency, and improve indoor air quality. Reduce, Recycle, Reuse.
Energy Efficiency = SavingsLiving more in harmony with nature is easier and not as costly as you might think. Green Homes are typically easier to maintain and use fewer resources (water, electricity) which save you money over the life of your property. The greatest advantage is that a Green Home produces less pollution, reduces our carbon footprint, and is healthier for people, pets, and the environment. Think health, comfort, and safety.
How can you Go GREEN?Easy. An Energy Audit to evaluate your home's energy efficiency is the best way to start. A complete Home Performance Evaluation by an approved Rater will provide you with recommendations and an estimate on what it would take to make your home more energy efficient. Whether you are buying, preparing your home for sale, or simply want to live in a healthier environment, I have information to help you make informed choices, one step at a time.
