Make Your Home More Eco-Friendly

Hang The Right Curtains

We can’t keep the suspense for very long. Since curtains are our favourite topic for conversation, we’ll start with them today. Blockout curtains are beneficial for preserving natural energy because when opened and closed at the right times of day, the home can maintain a comfortable temperature without the HVAC system working overtime. Check out our previous blog to learn more about how blockout curtains can help your home save energy.

Preserve Trees

Does your yard have a plethora of trees? Preserve them! Not only do they add a lovely look to the exterior of the home, trees provide necessary shade to keep the home naturally cool during the summer. Moreover, trees supply the oxygen we breathe. If you don’t have the space to plant trees, we love the idea of adding house plants inside your home.

Add Rugs To Hardwood Floors

By adding rugs to the hardwood floors in your home, you increase the insulation and preserve energy. Not to mention, rugs are soft on the toes and easy to clean. Most importantly, they look beautiful in all homes.
