Top 10 Green Myths

MYTH#1 Green Homes are more expensive.

Some green products are more expensive than conventional counterparts, but if you consider the project as a whole, and with proper planning, there are usually many opportunities to recycle and actually cut costs. Green homes on average save 30-60% on energy and water. Tax credits and rebates can
significantly help subsidize costs.

MYTH#2 You need to replace everything to be green.

Other than updating the mechanicals and water fixtures, the fewer things you replace, the more eco-friendly you are.

MYTH#3 Not many options for Eco Friendly building materials.

Not true anymore! You can now find a green alternative for any type of material that you would ever need.

Imagine a beautifully remodeled house... Now imagine that same exact house being even more comfortable to live in and costing 60% or less to run! That's what we do.
