Reen Renovation: How to Think About What You Want


You need to figure out what your goals are for renovating your home in an environmentally friendly way. Do you want to reduce your bills? Save water, gas or electricity? Increase the longevity of your home? These are the things you need to think about when you want to begin green home renovation.

Green Resources

Are you able to do the renovation yourself, or will you get a contractor in to do it for you? It depends on how extensive your green renovation will be, you should be able to change light bulbs to energy saving bulbs yourself, but loft insulation might be a bit tricky. However, if you are lucky enough to have some renovating skills yourself, then think about the resources you’ll use. 

If you’re opting for a contractor, make sure they share your values as a green renovator. They therefore should- reduce quantities of building materials, resources, and energy; reuse structurally sound construction materials; recycle materials as much as possible; and favor renewable building materials and energy sources.

Reen Renovation: How to Think About What You Want


Energy Saving

The best way to be green and save the environment as well as money is to look at where you get your energy. Energy saving measures such as insulation and window glazing can keep your home warmer and make a huge dent in your bills. Do a bit of research and you’ll be able to figure out whether loft or cavity wall insulation will be best for you. 

Systems such as solar panels and wind farms can generate electricity or hot water, and though they are a significant cost initially, you will make your money back in no time. Having water efficient appliances such as dishwashers and washing machines will also minimize water use and maximize water distribution efficiency. All this will reduce your carbon footprint and increase money saving.

Maintenance   

Cleaning your products and maintaining them to the highest possible standard that you can means that they will last for decades to come. Follow the manufacturer’s guidelines to the letter or look for green ways to maintain your appliances and products.
