Green home improvements can help reduce environmental impact and lower utility costs. Some examples of green home improvements include solar panel installation, insulation, and energy-efficient windows. Solar panel installation can provide a significant portion of a home’s energy needs and reduce reliance on fossil fuels. Factors to consider when installing solar panels include cost, roof condition, sun exposure, government incentives, maintenance, and system size. Insulation can help keep a home warm in the winter and cool in the summer, reducing energy consumption and lowering utility bills. Key things to consider when insulating a home include type of insulation, R-value, proper installation, air sealing, a whole-house approach, and future updates. Energy-efficient windows can also reduce heat loss and heat gain, helping to lower energy consumption and utility bills. Factors to consider when choosing energy-efficient windows include U-value, Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC), and Air Leakage (AL).
