Cost-Efficient Ways to Make Your Home More Eco-Friendly
June 29, 2017
Environmental consciousness is the name of the game in real estate for 2017. The movement of “green living” has taken hold of numerous disparate cohorts in the real estate market. While it’s traditionally more associated with younger Millennials, Gen X’ers and retirees are falling into line with the movement as well. In their annual “AARP Home and Community Preferences of the 45+ Population” survey, researchers found that a significant portion of their older respondents value green concepts. Researchers at Forbes backed this up; the green movement is so strong that entire retirement villages are being devoted to the concept.
The evidence is clear: homeowners of all ages value being environmentally conscious. But when pressed on the issue, a lot of people think of expensive investments such as solar panels. While heavy investments may be a sound strategy if your budget can support it, it’s also important to pick off the low hanging fruit of eco-friendliness. If you’re in the market for Dallas townhomes for sale and are thinking about wallet-savvy ways of helping the earth, try out a couple of these low-cost strategies.
Whether you’re making that morning smoothie and need a place to stash those banana peels or are putting together an evening salad and need to dispose of some vegetable stems, composting is the way to go. It’s cheap, clean, and helps fertilize the plants or gardens you have growing around your Dallas townhome.
Think About Your Feng Shui
Regardless of your feelings toward the Eastern philosophies of furniture arrangement, think about your placement of appliances and electronics. Placing the fridge close to the oven will jack up your energy bills. Leaving your computer plugged in and turned on when you’re not using it will do the same.
