Remodeling your home is the perfect time to go green. Renovating your home can give you the new start you are looking for around your house — and affords you a great opportunity to make your home a little more environmentally friendly.
Choose Greener Appliances
Your kitchen and bathroom are perfect rooms in which to be more environmentally friendly. When getting rid of old appliances likes refrigerators and freezers, choose Energy Star rated replacements. Energy Star models not only save you money in the long-run, but federal tax credits are also sometimes made available to help with the purchase. In the bathroom, replace toilets with low-flow models and install flow reducers on the shower and sinks to reduce water consumption. And always remember to recycle your old appliances and fixtures.
