How to Make Your Home Remodel More Green

North Fort Myers Online

Remodeling your home is a great opportunity to make positive changes to your space. One positive change you can implement is making your home more environmentally friendly. You can certainly be more green while remodeling. 

How to Make Your Home Remodel More Green: Reduce Your Utility Use

Depending on the depth of your remodel, you have a chance to make changes to the utilities and inner systems of your home. Doing so can help you reduce the amount of energy, water, and other resources that are used in your home. This is helpful to the environment, but it also helps you save money on your monthly utilities. To save water, you can consider installing low-flow faucets and showerheads. These devices reduce the amount of water that is used while still maintaining the pressure you’re used to. You can also install a low-flow toilet that uses less water depending on the type of waste. To help you save energy, you can purchase more efficient appliances or you can keep things simple by switching to energy efficient light bulbs. 

Use Recycled Materials

One of the biggest questions you have during a remodel is what materials to use. While you have many options, you might want to consider looking at recycled materials. Using recycled materials can add a unique style to your home while also being environmentally conscious. Your home can feature reclaimed wood or stone. You can even use recycled materials on your driveway. In order to create recycled asphalt, you need to remove your old paving first. Recycled materials are of a high quality and they are much cheaper than new materials. 

How to Make Your Home Remodel More Green: Prioritize Insulation

Insulation is an often overlooked part of the home, but it plays a large role in conserving energy. Many people think insulation primarily exists to keep heat in during the winter. However, insulation is key in preventing any kind of energy from escaping your home. When you have energy leaks due to a lack of insulation, your system will have to work harder which uses more energy and costs more. When you remodel your home, take a look at how you can improve the insulation. You can insulate your entire home, including inside the walls, but there are some areas that you can easily insulate. Focus on big spaces like attics, basements, and areas above your garage. You should also make sure your windows and doors are properly sealed. 

A home renovation might be done to improve the style or functionality of the space. However, you can take the time during your remodel to make some green choices. It helps the environment, but it helps you as well.
