3 Simple Cost-Saving Green Home Strategies

Looking to step up your conservation game? Take your home to the next level with some environmentally-friendly changes that can also save you money. Going green was never so easy!

Lightbulbs: Don’t discount this uber-easy step; it’s the little touches that make the biggest impact. Show how your home can be environmentally conscious while still looking sleek with Energy Star Certified LED lightbulbs throughout the house. They also last longer than incandescent lightbulbs, saving you money on two different fronts.

On sunny or partly-sunny days, opt to open blinds or the windows instead of hitting the light switch. This saves energy, which saves money, and gives the room a warm and inviting feel.


Plants. Plants Everywhere: Don’t underestimate how economically friendly houseplants can be, and fill the house with them. They improve air quality and provide oxygen, which can help save on the electric bill. Choose plants native to North Carolina to support local farmers and greenhouses. Just don’t forget to water them!
