Home Upgrades for a Greener, Healthier Lifestyle

The idea of an eco-friendly lifestyle has seen significant changes over the years, particularly in the aspect of home living. Today, it is not enough to reduce, reuse and recycle to cut down on the amount of waste. Home upgrades now involve the use of energy-efficient tools and equipment. They don’t just improve comfort levels, but also minimize energy costs and the so-called carbon footprint you leave behind.

In today’s blog post, Handyman Connection® of Lincoln provides tips to achieve a greener, healthier lifestyle without compromising style.

Choosing the Right Paint

It is likely that your home’s interior continues to emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs). In vapor form, they are released into the air from materials around your home, including the dry paint on your walls. These are harmful chemicals that may put you and your family at risk of illnesses when exposed for a long time. If your home improvement project that requires applying a fresh coat of paint, be sure to choose those with low VOCs.

Buying Energy-Saving Lighting

Traditional incandescent light bulbs have been proven to be inefficient. Do away with them and select energy-efficient ones such as compact fluorescent lamps and light-emitting diode (LED) lights. They are known to use about 25% to 80% less energy than their incandescent counterparts.

Ensuring Proper Insulation in Your Home

Insulating important areas of your home such as the attic and the living room allows you to reduce heating and cooling costs. High utility bills result from energy being lost through your roofing system, windows and walls. Whether you choose the batts or the loose fill types, insulation ensures optimal indoor comfort while reducing your HVAC use.

With these upgrades, you don’t just live a healthier lifestyle but also save on your energy bills. Turn to Handyman Connection of Lincoln to help you with implementing these projects.
