eco-friendly drywall repair for your homeJust about every company you encounter today will have a statement about how they’re dedicated to going green and saving the environment. In the same fashion, we’ve seen homeowners install solar panels and trade in their gas guzzlers for hybrids. After all, eco-friendly practices not only save the environment – they also save you money!

Here at New Ceilings, we’re no different, and we like to celebrate Earth Day every day. Are you trying to go green in your home? Here are 3 easy suggestions from your favorite drywall repair team in Orlando:

 

  • Switch out your light bulbs. Our homes are almost constantly lit, which in turn generates heat and requires more work from our air conditioners. Switching from incandescent to CFL light bulbs can reduce your energy consumption by almost 66% and help to keep your home cooler!
  • Pay attention to your paint. Getting ready to repaint your home’s interior? Make sure you choose a low-VOC paint, like Sherwin-Williams’ Harmony line. Limiting VOCs helps protect the atmosphere against volatile compounds. As an added bonus, limiting VOCs inside the home can help keep your family healthier.
  • Keep your drywall in good shape. You read that right! Drywall’s primary function is to protect you and your family by keeping the inside firmly separated from the outside. When your walls are cracked or have holes, you’re putting your air conditioner under a lot of stress and may be allowing interior chemicals to seep outside.

 

Going green really isn’t difficult with a little forethought and planning. When you need to tackle the big issues, it’s best that you get in touch with the professionals for the most cost and time efficiency. Ready to get started on your green home project?
