How much will I spend making my home energy independent?

    highly variable.  it’s recommended to start by having a home energy rating report performed (the test itself can be performed in a variety of ways depending on the state it’s issued in and the program/company which performs it).


    Some parts of your home may already meet independent energy standards, and on the opposite end of the spectrum…everything from the insulation to the windows, plumbing and air systems would need to be replaced.  the website below helps outline finance options and areas to consider, but it might be helpful to determine what changes you need to make specifically and matching the costs to similar projects performed in your area.

    The path to an eco-friendly home starts in the bathroom. This is the place where water flows freely, paper products run wild and tile cleaners contain toxins. Here are some tips can help you make your green life.
    1. Set your thermostat a few degrees lower in the winter and a few degrees higher in the summer to save on heating and cooling costs.
    2. Unstall LED Fluorescent Lamps when your older CFLs burn out.
    3. Wash clothes in cold water whenever possible. As much as 85 percent of the energy used to machine-wash clothes goes to heating the water.
    4. Use a drying rack or clothesline to save the energy otherwise used during machine drying.
    5. Walk or bike to work.
    6. Consider telecommuting if you live far from your work. Or move closer.
