Green Homes and Eco-Friendly Living
With the growing popularity of being environmentally responsible Green Homes have become sought after. There are currently two subdivisions that strongly promote green homes and eco-friendly living in Lethbridge: SunRidge and BlackWolf. In these areas, you can find homes built to meet Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum levels.
You will find an array of green features in these homes ranging from low-E windows, on demand hot water systems, upgraded insulation all the way to solar panels and geothermal heating and cooling systems. More than 17% of the energy used in Canada is consumed in maintaining a home, so nothing says “I Love and Respect You Mother Earth!” like the purchase of a Built Green home.
The Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) also makes it easier for home buyers to be eco-friendly. They offer a refund on CMHC insurance premiums for homes that qualify under their Green Home program. Home buyers simply need to fill out the CMHC Green Home Purchase Premium Refund Application.
If you are already a homeowner and you are considering renovating you home to include some eco-friendly features, you might also qualify for refunds. The Eco-Friendly Renovation Application Form can help get you some money back (make sure to check it out before you get started).
