7 Ways Condos in Houston Can Go Green

By
Mortgage and Lending with Secure Mortgage Company

I was talking to a friend of mine that lives in a condo in the galleria and she was wanting to go green but afraid it won't work for condo in Houston?  We sat and talked for a while and thought up some possible ways that it could be done. 

 

1.  Go Energy Star - Anytime you get a chance, use Energy Star appliances, lighting, heating and cooling equipment.  When it's time to replace something, look for the Energy Star option.

 

2.  Use a power strip - Many people have a slew of chargers and electronics.  Instead of plugging them directly into an outlet, use a power strip and then turn the power strip off when the electronics aren't in use.

 

3.  Get an energy audit - If you get an energy audit you can find out how your insulation and heating and cooling equipment is working compared to the other condos .  If it's not up to par, you can find out where you need to start.

 

4.  Check your seals - If you have windows and doors with poor seals, air can leak out, wasting the energy to heat or cool your condo.
