3 New Green Ideas for Your Condo

Spring is almost in the air, which has us thinking about the color green. Make your condo just a bit more environmentally-friendly this year with these 3 tips.

Go All LED

It used to be that you had to pay an arm and a leg for the energy-friendliness and longevity of LED bulbs. These days, standard 60 watt equivalent LED bulbs are less than a dollar a piece, which means there’s no excuse not to make the change now across your entire condo.

Start a mini-garden on your balcony

If you have the benefit of some outdoor space, why not make the most of it this year and try to grow a few herbs or vegetables? You actually don’t need very much space to grow fresh tomatoes in a planter! Plus, you’ll be adding a little extra charm to your outdoor space, and gardening has been proven to help alleviate stress.

Invest in a smart thermostat

If you’ve been on the fence about getting one, now’s the time to do it. The ever-popular Nest runs about $250 right now, which is not too bad, but there are also many capable competitors at lower price points. In any case, a smart thermostat will enable you to make your home between 10% and 20% more energy efficient by some measures, which should pay for itself over time and save you money in the long run.
