Eco-Friendly Ideas for a Homeowner [Infographic]

If you think that implementing eco-friendly measures in your home is more expensive than it’s worth, it’s worth considering that most of these measures involve short-term spending for long-term saving. Ultimately, the costs of installing new features will end up being recouped in the long run. Also, homeowners who make their homes more environmentally friendly often feel satisfaction that they are doing their bit for the good of Mother Nature.

If you would like to improve the eco-friendliness of your home, there are some very simple and inexpensive measures you can take as a very good starting point. For instance, opt for energy-saving light bulbs with low wattage that will last you for much longer than traditional incandescent bulbs. Also, get into the habit of using washing machines and dishwashers only when they are full, as using these appliances with half-loads or less is a highly inefficient practice that will serve only to plump your utility bills.

These are prime examples of how a relatively minor investment now could reap substantial savings in the longer-term.
