When it comes to planning remodel details, think beyond the style. Transform your new kitchen into an eco-friendly space and save money too!
1. ENERGY-EFFICIENT WINDOWS
Minimize heat transfer between indoors and out with high-quality, efficient windows. Windows with the ENERGY STAR label are often the most efficient.
2. WATER-EFFICIENT FIXTURES
Using eco-friendly, low-flow faucets (look for the WaterSense label) can reduce water flow by up to 30% without compromising water pressure.
3. ENERGY-EFFICIENT LIGHTING
Natural light (skylights and windows) is the most efficient lighting source but selecting the correct lightbulbs is also important. Save energy and money using long-lasting LED bulbs instead of traditional incandescent bulbs.
4. ENERGY-EFFICIENT APPLIANCES
Consider buying all-electric, energy-efficient appliances. They can reduce your home’s demand for energy, cut power plant emissions and reduce your electricity bill.
5. ECO-FRIENDLY CABINETS
