Want to sleep better at night?
Let’s face it – now may or may not be a good time for you to move. Maybe you love your current home, or the lot it is on, the neighbors and ‘hood around you. You don’t have to move to a neo-Craftsman townhouse or mega-green home to be able to live in a green home. In fact, there’s a strong argument for staying in your current home and modernizing it for comfort and energy efficiency rather than contributing to urban sprawl by buying a new home in a big development in the suburbs.
Every home can be a green home with GreenWorks Healthy Home Package. It is designed to improve the comfort, health, energy efficiency and durability of your home environment.
Many people share the well-known concern about global warming. You can do your part by improving the performance and livability of your home. Sleep better at night knowing you are taking the steps to reduce the waste your home produces, and improve the energy efficiency of your home.
As green home specialists, GreenWorks has created a specialized checklist to make any home more green.
The Healthy Home Assessment is not just a great solution for global warming. During the assessment you will be given tips and solutions to improve indoor air quality. With skyrocketing rates of asthma caused by indoor air quality averaging 2-5 times more toxic than outdoor air quality, this is a precious gift for the long-term health of your family.
The package includes:
1) Healthy Home Assessment
