HOMEUPGRADESTHATADDVALUE A fresh coat of paint and a curb-appeal makeover are musts when readying a home for sale, but green upgrades are fast becoming hot sell features too. From a large financial investment such as solar panels, to a small one like switching to low-flow faucets, buyers are looking for homes with a reduced environmental – and financial – impact. If you’re considering adding solar to your home, note that it doesn’t have to be all

or nothing. Even subsidizing your electricity with a small amount of solar energy helps decrease natural resource consumption – as well as the home’s power bill. Another power-saving upgrade is energy efficient appliances and lighting. And replacing old windows with

triple-glazed will reduce energy- loss, increase soundproofing and create a warmer, cozier space during the colder months. Plus, save water with low-flow faucets and showerheads,

which – thanks to new technology – use less water while still retaining excellent water pressure.
