Green home prices may be higher than that of other houses on the market – however, there is a great return on investment.

Our water bill is reduced by up to 60% when rainwater harvesting is implemented.  (Rainwater is used for washing machines, gardens and toilet flushing.)

Insulation of the home reduces the electricity bill.  Room insulation maintains room temperature and pipe insulation reduces the need to heat up water.

And using hydronics radiant heating and cooling makes temperature control inexpensive.

With all the above savings added up, there is a great reduction in monthly living costs, and this will give a return on investment.  Within ten years or less, the extra that is paid for the home is recouped in this way.
