What are “Green features”?
You may be surprised to hear that, although they fall into the category, solar panels are far from the top of the list. There are so many things that you can do for your home, ranging from inexpensive to substantial expenditures, but each one makes a difference. In fact, you may already have more Green features than you realize- Maybe you have some energy efficient appliances, are in a neighborhood with a good “walkability” score, have a programmable thermostat, or simply have effective insulation. Obtaining different “Green Certifications” depends on adding up these Resource-Efficient features. Some people even sell their house without realizing that it is or can be “Green Certified”, something that should always be highlighted to market your property. Why? Studies show that these homes obtain higher sales prices and sell faster.
