Incorporating Green Ideas

When building, remodeling, or replacing products in your home or commercial property, eco-friendly or green ideas can be very easy and often inexpensive to implement.  Here are some easy ways to incorporate green products into your property:

  • When building a new home or commercial space, face the widest part of the building to the north or south.
  • Place doors and windows where you will receive good cross-ventilation.
  • Ensure any attic space is well ventilated by using roof ridge vents, lighter colored roof materials, lots of insulation, and by placing A/C ducts in the attic to help absorb the heat.
  • Install an energy-efficient and properly sized heating and A/C system, make sure that duct work is correctly sealed, and use a programmable thermostat.
  • Utilize landscaping materials, plants and design that is appropriate for the climate and rainfall levels in your area.
  • Use low-flow toilets and showerheads and energy-efficient appliances.
  • Recyclable and renewable materials can be used for decking, siding, interior and exterior trim, and more.
  • Choose flooring materials made out of concrete, bamboo, or recycled wood.
  • Replace your air conditioning filter regularly to enhance the performance of your air conditioning system and to reduce pollutants.
