Are you currently involved in a home improvement project? If so, you may be interested to know that many homeowners are focusing on sustainable home improvement projects, including those that increase their home’s energy efficiency and reduce their utility costs.
The “Home Design and Remodeling” section of Energy.gov provides several ideas for increasing a home’s energy efficiency. These can be handled best when building a new home or when remodeling, and include installing small wind turbines or solar panels to provide electricity.
Another recommendation provided by the “Energy Saver Home Design and Remodeling” section is sunspaces. In addition to providing heat, these designated spaces are wonderful for growing plants. Then there’s the fact that they are nice places to sit and relax.
