The 7 Commandments Of A Green Remodel For Albuquerque

The 7 Commandments Of A Green Remodel For Albuquerque

If you’ve been thinking of remodeling all or part of your real estate, you might want to consider a green remodel.

Green building means that you use certain materials and practices that are better for the environment and for your health. By following a few guidelines, you can easily complete an eco-friendly remodeling project.

Recycle. Whenever possible, choose materials for your real estate made from recycled products. This cuts down on the amount of waste piling up in our landfills.

Use local materials. Local materials don’t have as far to travel, so transporting them costs less and uses less fuel. They are also more durable since they are already adapted to your climate.

Think sustainable. Products made from bamboo and cork are better for the environment because they can be easily replaced. Bamboo can grow as much as 1 meter each day.

Save as much energy as possible. Install energy efficient windows and add insulation throughout your home. Seal cracks around doors and windows. Purchase new, energy efficient appliances. Not only will you help the environment, you’ll also save money on your electric bill.

Always consider indoor air quality. Choose products with little or no volatile organic compounds. Use green cleaning products inside your home to reduce indoor air pollution.

Find ways to cut back on water use. Devices like high efficiency washing machines and dual-flush or low-flow toilets use less water than their traditional counterparts. Use xeriscaping for your yard. If you have the budget, consider installing a rainwater harvesting system.

Think before you throw away. Before you throw away anything, from appliances to building materials, make sure no one else can use it. Place an ad on Freecycle or Craigslist. You may be surprised by what other people need.
