GREEN QUESTION of the Month
What types of low- or no-cost things can I do to “green” my existing home?
There are lots of simple, no-cost things you can do. For example, keep chemical fumes out of the indoor air by storing chemicals safely outdoors or in a ventilated space. The Healthy Homes Partnership offers an online tool designed to help you evaluate the environmental risks in your home. To try this tool, visit www.uwex.edu/healthyhome/.
Let Us Help You Think Outside the Box
Visualizing the possibilities in a home in which you’ve lived for many years can be difficult. It can be equally daunting to see an older home on the market requiring modernization becoming the home of your dreams. But with help from the McCaleb Construction Design Team you can transform ineffective, undesirable or unappealing areas of your home into practical and loveable living spaces, while ensuring a sizeable return on your investment. Last month we spoke of ways to improve energy efficiency in your home, such as window and door replacement and the improvement of mechanical systems. There are even tax credits for many of these improvements (see the December 2009 issue of “On The Level”).
