You are ready to remodel your bathroom and want to do it as green as possible. More and more home owners are interested in the environment and desire to make their homes more green. There are several things to keep in mind in planning your renovation according to houselogic.
Think about saving water when remodeling your bathroom with green in mind. The right kind of toilet and shower head may actually save you money. Toilets which use less water may actually save you about 27% on your water consumption.
With water in mind, consider alternative ways to heat your water. Possibly a tankless water heater or a more energy efficient one if the one you currently have is an older model. You may also consider insulating your water heater and setting your water heater to 120°.
Secondly, consider the types of material you use for flooring. Using recycled materials or ceramic are great possibilities to help your bathroom remodel more green. It is also important to try to recycle the materials you remove. Some must be trashed, but many things may be able to be given to a reuzit store like Habit for Humanity.
You may also consider the venting fan. There are options so less heat may be lost through the venting fan.
When considering ways to remodel your bathroom keeping it as green as possible, remember you will not get a return of your investment when you sell. You will most likely receive a partial return, but not entirely.
