Easy Fixes to go 'GREEN' in Your Home Right Now the RI Way

There are easy fixes in your home you can do right now to go 'GREEN' the RI way I call it.  It will bring a return when you sell your home or just enjoy the benefits now of improving the environment- the RI way.

This past weekend I just had a direct vent on demand gas tankless hot water heater installed in my home to replace the older tank hot water heater.  My mantra for this year is 'GO GREEN' in improvements so a Rinnai tankless water heater was installed - a pricey option at a couple thousand dollars but I almost made money on this one.  After you subtract out the 30% federal tax credit on the water heater & installation when I file my taxes, the $300 rebate back from the local gas company & the federal RI appliance rebate of $300 (yes, it covers water heaters & boilers) the water heater will pay itself back in 2 years!  Go GREEN the RI way...

Here are some other ways to go green that will cost you minimal dollars and Eric Corey Freed delivers it very well in this video:
