Most of us now know that there are many benefits to saving energy. Not only is it good for the planet but it will also usually save you money in the long run. There are many smalls things that you can do on a daily basis around the house that can add up to you contributing a lot less greenhouse gases to the air and renovations that can be made if you’re interested in making a larger impact.
If you’ve recently bought a brand new piece of real estate in London, Toronto, Montreal or Calgary, then you’ve got yourself a lot of work ahead of you. It’s not like you can just sign your name on the dotted line after your offer is accepted and you’ll automatically be living in your new home.
While most of us are not at the point where we can build a home completely off the grid that uses everything from solar panels to a rainwater collection system, we are thinking about green solutions more and more when it comes to big and small projects around the house.
Water is not an unlimited resource. We here in Canada tend to forget this fact, because we have such a large portion of the world’s fresh water, but less than 2% of the water on Earth is drinkable, and even less than that is accessible. This means we have to make an effort to conserve water in our Yorkville condos so that there will still be water left for our children and grandchildren.
