“Going Green” is a progressive movement, and most are catching on, especially when it comes to home appliances. Not only will buying (or converting to) a “green” home help to make your family & the world a bit healthier, but your “green home” will even help you to save money. As Energy prices rise, your savings increase as well. In this way, putting your money towards being energy efficient is actually an excellent investment! According to Taryn Holoqka, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Green Building Council, the average household spends $1,500 per year on energy. “A green-certified building, on the other hand, uses 32% less electricity, 26% less natural gas and 36% less total energy, ” Taryn says. There are lots resources out there to get you started and plenty of research to be done so take a look!
