Many homeowners are making efficiency a priority when undertaking home renovation projects.  Improved efficiency can make a renovation more affordable in the long term – and reduce your household environmental impact.  

Small home improvements will also reduce your environmental footprint.  Consider some of the following simple measures that can improve the quality of your home:

  • Replace incandescent light bulbs with energy- efficient compact fluorescents LEDs
  • Replace old caulking and weather stripping
  • Install a programmable thermostat
  • Install low-flow showerheads
  • Turn down your water heater to 120ºF/49ºC
  • Plant trees and shrubs to protect your home from the wind and sun
