Rethink Energy: Free Green Renovation and Home Building Resource

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.

Arlington’s real estate market is very tight. A recent Ask Eli column about housing supply notes, “Single-family homes in Arlington hit an all-time low for Months of Supply in December and January.” Because of this short supply of housing, more and more Arlingtonians are staying in their homes and renovating or expanding them to accommodate growing families.

Have you been thinking about a home renovation, expansion or new construction in 2020?
More than 350 Arlingtonians have already used Green Home Choice, a FREE county program to help you make their renovations, additions and new home projects healthier and more sustainable.

When buying a car, fuel efficiency and a comfortable ride are central considerations. Given the investment you make when renovating or building a new home, comfort and efficiency should be equally — if not more — important.

On average, a Green Home Choice home uses 50% less energy than Arlington homes of the same size and saves between $600 and $1,600 per year on utility bills. Green Home Choice also helps homeowners renovate their kitchens and bathrooms in a more sustainable way and offers a certification for participation.

Whether you are a homeowner, developer, architect or builder, Green Home Choice can help you rethink your next construction project to enhance the quality, value and overall sustainability of your home.
