10 Energy-Efficient Home Upgrades You Should Make
On Earth Day and every day, we need to find ways to be kind to the Earth, preserve our natural resources and minimize the energy we are using. There are a variety of things that homeowners can do to make their homes more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly. Adam Prince of ZeroEnergy Design recommends implementing what you can now, while also creating a simple energy plan for the future.
“If an opportunity arises, you’ll be ready,” Prince said. “Think ahead about your decisions to improve your building shell, systems, appliances, lighting, and possibly add renewable energy. Having an energy plan in place will help avoid snap decisions and instead make the right decision — for example, if your refrigerator breaks, if the roof needs replacement, or if you are about to finish the basement.”
