Happy Earth Day! Here’s to another year around the sun on this beautiful Earth! At BST Realty LLC, we have agents who understand green building and energy efficiency when it comes to homes. There are so many pathways to get to having a home that leaves a lighter footprint on our planet. Some may say that the “grass is always greener,” and with energy-efficient homes, that’s most likely the case. Because not only are you using less energy, but you are probably saving money in the long run.
Green and Energy Efficient Homes
Newer homes may also come solar-ready. So, it’s good to understand all the avenues that you may take into having a “greener” home if you’re thinking about adding solar panels. You may also be surprised about the potential of older homes that may be well-suited for renewable energy such as solar panels as well. In addition to that, it could be as simple as replacing light bulbs with LED or replacing your thermostat with a Smart thermostat. Follow it up with thinking about the right insulation, which could help save you a pretty penny on energy bills. There are also programs out there such as the Energy Trust Program that may be able to help you out with your journey into living a more green and energy-efficient life.
Whether you’re a Buyer or a Seller, there’s a way to not only find the home of your dreams but also explore options to living a “greener” lifestyle in the gorgeous Willamette Valley. We hope you’re out there enjoying some nature and the wonderful sunshine we’ve been getting this Earth Day. And, at BST Realty LLC, we are all about helping our clients figure out the best home pathway. If you’re thinking about taking the next steps into buying or selling, please don’t hesitate to reach out! We are to help you at every point in the journey.
