Owners of Highlands real estate can make some easy “green” changes to reduce their energy bills and their carbon footprint at the same time. Here in Highlands NC the beauty of our environment is what drew many of us here to begin with and while many of our homes may not be rebuilt we can make changes inside that can help them be more environmentally friendly. These small steps were highlighted in a recent article from REALTOR® Magazine titled “6 Ways to ‘Green’ a Home”.
A few of the steps you can take to help your Highlands home operate in a “greener” manner include:
