The words sustainable and renewable are becoming as American as baseball and apple pie. If it’s not farm to table, we don’t want to eat it, if a company’s not utilizing renewable energy, we don’t want to work with them, and if our homes aren’t environmentally friendly, we don’t want to live in them. The idea of the American dream is changing, we’re not just interested in owning our own home, having 2.5 kids, and a dog anymore, we want more. We want our own “dream home” customized to our every whim with every amenity we could possibly need, but it’s not just more that we desire, we want to contribute, pull our weight, and give back all at the same time, because, we know it’s possible, attainable, and the right thing to do.
It’s not enough just to survive anymore, we want to thrive, and in order to do that, Americans are starting to live more responsibly. We’re reducing our carbon footprint by building green and making sure our homes are equipped with:
- Efficient moisture barriers,
- Tankless water heaters,
- Dual flush toilets,
- Drought tolerant landscaping,
- Insulated windows,
- Rainwater collection systems,
- Engineered and alternative wood products,
- Energy efficient air conditioners, heaters, and appliances, and
- Solar panels.
What’s more, we’re actually saving money by going green. Initial investments quickly pay dividends in the form of lower energy bills, lower maintenance fees, and improved living conditions. Energy-efficient homes save home owners anywhere from 30 percent to 60 percent on their energy bills. And according to the US Green Building Council, “Owners will save between $200 to $400 annually, adding up to potentially thousands of dollars saved over the seven or eight years that the typical homeowner lives in a home. Some homes see savings up to 60%, and energy efficiency in apartments could save 3.4 billion dollars.”
