“How do I green my house?” You didn’t think green could be a verb, did you? When you hear this question asked the person posing it more than likely is not referring to his or her home’s paint job. Nothing against green; it’s a lovely color, but the term green more times than not will refer to a home’s energy efficiency. Not only is going green friendly for the environment, it is also extremely friendly for your wallet. We’ll explore a few avenues you can take to green-up that home of yours, including a few that your friends at RIHI can help you out with.
There are many ways you can create a green environment in your home, covering a wide range of pricing and amount of labor. One of the simplest ways to begin is adding programmable thermostats. These helpful little gadgets take the thought surrounding your home’s temperature out of your hands. Balancing your home’s climate will not only make your home more comfortable, but will also ease the burden of those pesky heating bills.

You also want to become familiar with the term Energy Star. Energy Star is a program the government has instituted in order to make the journey to energy efficiency much easier for people. This is where we come in. While many people associate Energy Star with household appliances, such as refrigerators, dishwashers, washing machines, and dryers, they may not realize that replacement windows and siding also fall into this category. For example, our Protec windows and siding will green your house in no time. We’re proud to offer a replacement window that has been Energy Star certified. With one of the best U factors on the current market, our Protec replacement window system could not be any greener if it tried. Our Protec siding, for that matter, offers a patented insulation which makes conventional insulation blush with shame when comparing energy efficiency quotients.
