Creating An Eco Friendly Home

By Sherri Melton

When it comes to our planet, every person is responsible for their part. On top of being eco friendly, it will be good on your bank account. Making your home eco friendly is important. These home improvement projects will be good for your wallet as well as your planet.

Planning a Project

Not all home improvement projects are something that is considered DIY type projects or you may not be interested in tackling these projects yourself. You will need to hire a good contractor. You should look for one who has experience in eco friendly remodeling. Make sure your goal of a green home is known.

Removing Debris the Green Way

One of the most important parts of creating a green project is where the debris left over will be disposed. Disposal is important in all projects. Remodeling involves breaking things apart and throwing them away. Before going to the dump, try thrift stores and places around that you can donate too. Check with your city for the rules and regulations for disposing of things like paint.

New Lives to Old Fixtures

You can reuse almost anything. For instance, a tire can be turned into a planter around your mail box post or an old iron bed frame can be made a focal point of a ‘flower bed’. Understand? Cabinets that are no longer good in the kitchen may work well in the basement.

Energy saving techniques:

Saving water and fuel is a big improvement. It will be worthwhile to insulate your home. Heating and AC is expensive, so saving will be great. With an insulated home, you can use lower capacity equipment. This will save in many ways.

When buying new appliances, look for the energy star. You choice will be easier because of this. It’s like a nutrition label. Remember, the more eco friendly the project the more economic it will be to operate as well.
