A green home is a home that uses less energy, less water, fewer natural resources, creates less waste, and is healthier for the people living there compared to a standard home. It’s as simple as that.
A home can be built to be green, but in most cases this is not an option. Creating a green home begins with an energy use makeover. This can be done all at once, or it can be a gradual process, but what it ultimately comes down to is a new way of thinking—and a new way of living.
Making your home a greener place is a commitment to yourself, your family, your community, and the planet. It is also a learning process. As exciting new technologies, products, and scientific breakthroughs emerge, staying educated on the “how’s and why’s” of maintaining or upgrading your green home is the best way for you to ensure your efforts are as effective, economical, and beneficial as possible.
