Handy Tips: Go Green to Save Green

Green home tips for rentersWe’re all aware of the green movement that has been happening for several years now. Maybe saving the earth isn’t for you but everyone loves to save money, right? A few changes around your rental home can help you save green while going green!

Being environmentally friendly can be challenging as a home or condo renter. The major suggestions is always to get new appliances as the first step in conserving energy but that isn’t really an option in a long-term rental. One of the simplest changes you can make is in your lighting! Replacing your old bulbs with energy-saving alternatives, such as the ones seen above,  as they burn out saves money and energy. They also burn cooler therefore keeping your home cooler and not making your air conditioner fight even harder to cool your already steamy Northwest Florida home rental. The same principle applies to blackout curtains. While we all love the sunshine here on the Gulf Coast blocking a bit of it out can save you money on cooling your home in the summer and protect against drafts letting out your heat in the winter.

These are just a few tips we know have worked for us. What green tips work for you in your Southern Residential Leasing home? Leave them in the comments here or on our Facebook page!
