Are you the homeowner who is always dreaming about the next remodel for your beloved home? Remodeling is a wonderful way to freshen up your house, and it can be done in stages. This gives you the satisfaction of enjoying new things as well as the anticipation of what your next dream can bring about. HFS Financial specializes in home improvement financing. Maybe you’re ready to change some more things at your house and to help the environment in the process. Here is how to make your home more eco-friendly when you remodel.
Start with Solar Panels
First, you can join the crowd that’s going green through installing solar panels on their homes. Using solar energy is great for many reasons. You and your local community will quickly see the difference that solar panels bring.
Solar helps the environment because it reduces the use of fossil fuels to produce electricity. Your budget also sees the difference as you ease up on your spending for electricity. Long-term savings are also a big perk of converting to solar energy.
Remodel with Reclaimed Materials
Next, there is another popular trend that you want to be a part of — using reclaimed materials for your stunning remodel. This option can help you save money while you’re helping to save the planet. There are all kinds of materials and accessories available that have been built from reclaimed materials.
You can choose reclaimed wood for floors, walls, or even countertops. This still gives you a beautiful new look and allows you to reuse rather than to buy something brand new. You can also find gorgeous furniture that has been built from reclaimed materials. If you like to refurbish furniture, you can find your own treasures to transform into stunning pieces as well.
Remember to Reface Rather than Replace
Another way to make your home more eco-friendly when you remodel is to reface surfaces rather than replacing them. Cupboards and drawers in a kitchen or bathroom remodel are a great place to start with this. You can easily give these surfaces a new face with some environmentally-friendly VOC paint.
Accessorize with Eco-Friendly Appliances
Finally, remember to finish off those new rooms with appliances that are eco-friendly as well. Be sure to do your research on which appliances are going to require the least amount of energy to run effectively. You will love the new appliances even more when they are saving you money on your electricity bill.
