This regularly-scheduled sponsored column is written by the Arlington Initiative to Rethink Energy team (AIRE). This county program helps you make smart energy decisions that save you money and leaves a lighter footprint on the environment.
Remodeling an existing kitchen or bathroom can be an exciting challenge. Among all of the things to consider, water and energy efficiency can easily fall by the wayside.
The Rethink Energy program is here to help make the choices a bit easier and greener. Starting this fall, Arlington Green Home Choice will launch a free kitchen and bath pilot certification program to complement the successful whole home certification program.
Free consultations and the kitchen and bath checklist will guide you in making your new space more comfortable, healthy and durable, so you can enjoy your new space and celebrate lower energy and water bills.
Elements of the program include, but are not limited to:
- Energy Star appliances
- LED lighting
- High efficiency water fixtures
- Insulation and air sealing
- Non-toxic materials and finishes
- And much more
Act now — the first 25 projects are being taken as part of the initial pilot. If you are interested, send an email to [email protected].
Also, don’t forget, you can get a home energy rebate if your upgrades qualify under Arlington’s Home Energy Rebate Program.
