Tips for a Greener Home

Greening the home doesn’t have the cost a fortune. You’d be surprised how even the smallest changes can make a big difference, and some are easy fixes. The following tips can help you turn over a new leaf this season by making your home a greener, healthier, and safer place to live:

Save water. Upgrade your bathroom and kitchen fixtures to not only conserve water, but also to reduce your water and energy bill. One way to achieve this is to swap out your old showerhead and faucet for alternatives, like low-flow fixtures. They are highly desirable options on the market that are efficient and look great.

Purify the air. Believe it or not, sometimes the air inside your home can be more dangerous than the ones outside. But adding air purifiers, such as HEPA filters, can help. According to the EPA, air purifiers help control foul odors, allergens, and pollutants in your home.

Grow plants. Breathe new life into your home with houseplants that give off oxygen and remove toxic odors in the air. aloe vera and chrysanthemums are great options that can help you improve the air quality in your home.

Insulate. Insulation is a quick, easy, and reliable solution that can make a big difference when it comes to saving money and being comfortable. Studies show that insulation mixed with a radiant barrier can lower cooling costs from 5-10 percent in warm climates.
