Green Homes, Holmes.

Wanna learn about some features in Green Homes? Here's some!

Kitchens

The Kitchen is one of the most energy requiring rooms in your house. Here's some green alternatives that are bound to spice up your bills by lowering their amounts.


Ovens- Green ovens will switch off and allow the food to cook for a few minutes at the end of cooking. This allows the food to finish cooking and saves on energy.


Paper vs Cloth- Instead of using paper towels for quick cleanups, use a trusty cloth that can be thrown into the washer after every use. This saves money at the store and minimizes your waste footprint.

Bathrooms

The Bathroom is a place of privacy. However, your waste footprint isn't private to the rest of the world! Use Eco-Friendly methods to shrink that footprint and help create a better and cleaner future with these useful Green methods...


Low-flow Toilets- Toilets use 27% of your house's water or about 7 gallons per flush! The new "Low-flow Toilets" only use .8 gallons for smaller waste, and 1.6 gallons for more. This lowers water costs and can help you in the long run.


Motion Sensor Faucets- This is an obvious one. When a person has a faucet they tend to leave it on while brushing their teeth or washing their hands. With the motion sensor installed, it allows you to use the most efficient amount of water to clean your hands or wash down toothpaste by just activating when somethings in front of it.


Exterior

The exterior of the house could potentially be the most Eco-Friendly part of the house. It's one of the few things that's actually exposed to the environment! So why don't you use that to your advantage and use these tips to help the environment while also helping your bills!


Solar Roofs- If you're like the average American, you get your power from a grid. But what if you made your own power? You can actually install solar panels on your roof and put power storage batteries into your basement to harness the power of the sun to your own use!


Green Siding- The siding of the house is one of the most important parts of your house. It protects the walls and helps keep the warm or cold air in and the vice versa out. However it takes a lot of materials to make that plastic, wood, or metal siding. With the Green siding, you'll use recycled parts to create the same amount of durability at a lower Eco-Cost. It may be a little pricey upfront, but can help the world in the long run. Plus you'll have a ton of extra money from going green anyways!
