The dramatic increase in recent years of eco-friendly home buying mirrors other eco-friendly efforts in various lifestyle trends – hybrid automobiles, recycling bins on every corner, and biodegradable packaging.
Home buyers that lean towards eco-friendly homes as opposed to homes that are opulent or luxurious is becoming a more mainstream trend due to these shifts in concentrated efforts to “go green.” Typical features like a pool or spa are being overlooked for features that will make a home more environmentally friendly.
When it comes to an eco-friendly home, there are countless options available, from green building materials, energy-conserving insulation, and CFL lighting, to low-VOC paint, Energy Star appliances
, and high-efficiency water heaters. Even if you don’t currently reside in an eco-friendly home, there are still ways to reduce your footprint, such as energy-efficient lighting and appliances, solar panels, and more.
Integrating eco-friendly attributes to a home isn’t just great for the environment, it’s also a fantastic way to save money, which is one of the main reasons energy-efficient air conditioning, appliances, and lighting are some of the most popular options, in addition to water conservation appliances.
