Will these 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, the type, capacity, age, and how you manage your cooling, heating, and hot water systems, the amount of insulation and air leakage there is in your home’s envelope, how you manage your water usage, the quality of your water, the animals, contaminants in furnishings, flooring, paint on the walls, the way your plumbing system has been designed and insulated, where your faucets and showers are located, as well as the number and size of windows, and many other factors.

This is where we can help. In conjunction with the guidelines of the EPA Healthy Indoor Environment Protocols, the Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET) and the EPA Water Sense Program, 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 aspects 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.
