Environmental home design, a trend that first took hold in the last decade or so, has reached an all-time high — and, considering its health and financial benefits, we’d guess it’s not going anywhere, anytime soon. Driven by eco-conscious buyers, an increasing number of developers are interested in creating homes that breathe easier, are durable and, overall, more energy-efficient.
These changes to save on electricity and go green, can be as small as simply changing over to using LED lighting in your home, and recycling rain water, as well as limiting the amount of air-conditioning -both of which you would see immediate savings in cost.
Some other options to save and go green, choosing options such as recycled material, foam insulation, as well as low-flow toilets and faucets. Also using tankless water heaters instead of the usual tank water heater in your home, can save you on utility costs, and even pay for itself overall after time.
