Welcome to another installment of Ask a Pro! Today we are talking to Carolina Buia, Dream Team member and Lifestyle pro. Let’s see what she has to say about going green in your home!
Q: What are a few easy ways to turn my home into an energy-efficient, “green” home?
A: Going green in your home is a great way to not only save money, but to help preserve the earth. First, make sure you install energy-efficient lighting such as compact fluorescents. Also, change out any old appliances that are using up lots of energy. By replacing your old energy hog appliances, you can use less energy and save money in the long run. Another great way to go green is by installing low-flow showerheads and faucets. This will decrease your household’s water consumption by up to 70%, and you’ll also use less energy heating up the water.
