Top 12 Sustainable Home Improvements



Whether you want to save money or the planet, these sustainable home improvements will help. Adding insulation, air-sealing, and new windows will also make your home more comfortable.

Here is a list of the top twelve home improvements to make your home more sustainable.

Schedule Hvac System Maintenance

Homeowners often do not keep up on HVAC maintenance. This included changing the air filter twice a year. It will cause the fan to overwork and possibly burn out if not done.


Install a Smart or Programmable Thermostat

Smart thermostats are excellent. They are usually easier to use than programmable thermostats. There is also the benefit of keeping an eye on temperature and humidity in the home while you are away.


Upgrade to Double-Glazed Windows

If you have single-pane windows, you should consider upgrading to a quality double-pane window. Single-pane windows lose too much energy and allow air and sound to pass easily.


Install Low-Flow Water Fixtures

This is especially important for hot water. If you have high-flow water fixtures and use hot water, then the water heater has to heat a lot more. If you have well-water, the well-pump will also run more, even with cold water.
