Green Housing Initiative

Although home repair is inherently green, Rebuilding Together Broward County needs your help in launching this new initiative, which will allow homeowners to save money on their electric and water bill and help preserve our environment. This initiative will focus on the following 6 Green Housing components;

  1. Energy efficiency: such as adding insulation, caulking around windows, weatherstripping, adding a water heater blanket
  2. Water efficiency: such as installing aerators in sinks and showers, low-flow or dual flush toilets, fixing leaky faucets
  3. Resource efficiency: such as using recycled materials; recycling construction waste; using fewer and less; properly disposing of hazardous waste
  4. Indoor environmental health: such as installing exhaust fans, no-VOC paints and finishes, properly ventilating the home, using lead safe work practices, eliminating mold, pest management, using non-toxic cleaning products
  5. Homeowner education: such as helping homeowner understand the types of repairs made, how to use new thermostat, the health and safety issues addressed through the repairs
  6. Smart land use: such as using native plant species, planting shade trees, planting nontoxic varieties in households with children
