How can green homes save money?
  • Going green doesn’t have to cost the earth. Lower energy bills mean more money in your pocket. According to the European Commission, global energy efficiency measures could save up to €410 billion on energy spending.
  • The average US household spends around $2,000 on energy bills each year and between 10 and 20% of that could be going to waste as a result of drafts, air leaks around openings and outdated heating and cooling systems. Making standard efficiency improvements like sealing up air leaks, putting in insulation or installing programmable thermostats could put an extra $400 in your pocket.
  • Taking a shower uses around 80% less water than a bath. That’s a big saving on money, water and electricity over a year.
