Pre-Approving Green-Ready Homes.
Nearly all of the nation’s housing stock built before 2012 was constructed conventionally. Very little attention was paid to the performance of homes with respect to energy and water consumption and also indoor quality.
We help home buyers to identify those that can be changed by upgrading their features, appliances, and systems, thereby making the homes almost as green as they would like them to be.
For a home to be approved Green-Ready, it must make economical, financial and holistic sense to upgrade the features that affect the energy and water efficiency and air quality of a home.
At Florida Green Home Consultants, we have LEED Accredited Professionals and Home Energy Raters, who have been trained to do the calculations and make these determinations. More …

Home Energy Rating
A Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Report provides a standardized evaluation of a home’s energy efficiency and expected energy costs. A HERS Rating provides a relative energy use index called the HERS Index. On this index a score of 100 represents the energy use of a standard home and a score of 0 (zero) indicates a Zero Energy home.
- Would you like to qualify for a more favorable home mortgage or buy more home for less money?

Healthy Home Consulting
According to the EPA, the air that we breathe in our homes is 2 – 5 times more polluted than the air outside.
This is because the materials used to build and furnish our homes contain a variety of synthetic materials and chemicals such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that off-gas from carpets, paints, glues and finishes, insulation, cushions and chemically treated timber, into our unvented, ever-circulating air conditioned spaces. This results in a dangerous situation called Sick Home Syndrome. The situation is made worse by other pollutants such as radon gas, nitrogen oxide, second hand smoke and carbon monoxide that also accumulate in our homes and collectively contribute to respiratory and other health problems for the occupants such as lung cancer and asthma.
Because of this, and the fact that the average American spends much of his or her time at home, the EPA has ranked indoor air as one of the top risks to public health. Florida Healthy Home Consulting addresses these issues.
At Florida Green Home Consultants, we follow the EPA Healthy Indoor Environment Protocols for Home Energy Upgrades to help homeowners to identify the causes of this pollution in their homes as well as the healthy Green Home improvements that can be made to improve the quality of their indoor air and environment.

Eco Friendly Home Consulting
Eco friendly homes are those that are kind to the environment. They are often built using sustainable materials that support local economies. They also minimize and divert house waste, recycle resources, pollute the air and earth less, use less water and energy, impact and disturb their surrounds less, reduce storm water run-off, support surrounding natural areas, native plants and wildlife and generally, have a much smaller ecological footprint than conventional homes.
At Florida Green Home Consultants, we help future and existing homeowners to make economically sensible, eco friendly Green Home improvement choices for their homes which ultimately benefit their living conditions, the environment, and the local community.

Home Water Efficiency Consulting
Using less water in our homes by using water efficient Green Home improvements has become a priority throughout the United States as this precious resource becomes rapidly depleted by an ever increasing residential and commercial demand which is also causing significantly rising costs.
In addition to saving water utility costs, using less water in our homes helps to prevent water pollution in nearby lakes, rivers, local watersheds and the Florida aquifer which provides us with drinking water.
Conserving water by using water efficient Green Home improvements also reduces the overloading of our municipal sewer systems thereby preventing untreated sewage from flowing into lakes and rivers.
Using less water can also extend the life of our home water appliances and also our septic systems by reducing soil saturation, as well as reducing any pollution due to overflowing and leaks.
At Florida Green Home Consultants we are able to introduce a number of economical water efficient Green Home improvements that meet the EPA WaterSense Criteria to ensure that your home does not contribute to any of the above negatives and saves you money at the same time.
Will any of the above mentioned Green Home Improvements help you to achieve your Green Home goals?
Whether they will or not depends on the number of occupants in your home and their habits, how you manage your utilities, appliances and systems, the orientation and design of your home, its contents and many other factors.
This is where we can help. In conjunction with the guidelines of the EPA Water Sense Program, the EPA Healthy Indoor Environment Protocols for Home Energy Upgrades, and the Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET), we follow the LEED for HOMES Whole House Approach, which not only considers one stand-alone Green Home improvement, but also its relationship to all the other elements that impact the Green aspect of your home.
At Florida Green Home Consultants, we provide either a phone consultation or an in-home consultation to help you to decide what’s best for you, your family and your home. We will then introduce you to the services of our Certified Contractor Associates who are state licensed and insured to supply and install the Green Home improvements of your choice.
