Simple DIY Home Projects

One of the do it yourself home projects that you can pursue is that of having a green bathroom. Your bathroom wreaks a lot of havoc on the environment. First of all the water that goes down and the cleaning products that you use. There are a few changes that you can implement to go green.

1. Reduce your water use. If your house was built after 1995, your toilet is likely a low-flow model. However, if your house is older and the bathroom hasn’t been renovated recently, consider replacing that old clunker with a streamlined, water-conserving model.

2. Ventilate. A properly ventilated bathroom maintains good indoor air quality and prevents the growth of mold. Natural ventilation is the best, but not every bathroom has a window. Install an Energy Star-rated exhaust fan to draw humid air out of your bathroom. Your fan should move one cubic foot of air each minute per one square foot of space in the room; check the label. If you are willing to spend a little extra, buy an exhaust fan with an occupancy sensor, humidistat or timer to save energy when the bathroom is not in use.
