What are some ways to make a building more eco friendly?

    There are so many options to make your home, workspace or whatever it may be more eco-friendly. There are some obvious (and often expensive) ways to be green such as installing solar panels, replacing old windows with high efficiency windows or installing a tankless water heater. If you have the cash, go for it! If not there are some cheaper options such as insulating your attic really well. This keeps in heat in the winter and helps keep your cool air in during the summer. This is an investment (typically less than $1000) that will pay for itself over time because your electric/gas bills will go down substantially. Being sure your home is properly sealed is also important. You can pay someone to do this or do it yourself. Go through your home and look for gaps around electrical sockets, pipes, door frames etc. and fill them with caulk or some sort of insulating filler. This will prevent drafts in your home keeping your energy use more stable. Some cheap and free things: unplug chargers when not in use, take shorter showers, start replacing light bulbs with CFLs and open windows in the summer.
