TOP FIVE WAYS TO GO GREEN AT HOME

Frank Wickstead, president of the Atlanta remodeling firm WicksteadWorks, suggests five of the fastest ways to turn your home into an eco-friendly environment.

> Switch to LED bulbs: “These bulbs are rapidly becoming more affordable,” Wickstead said. “They’re cooler; they use almost no electricity; and they have an unbelievably long lifespan.” They’re also ideal for cutting the cost of those outdoor lights you want to leave on all night.

> Add new attic insulation: “The best thing you can do for your house without tearing into the walls is to put open-cell spray foam insulation in the attic,” said Wickstead. The brand Icynene is among the most popular that can be sprayed along the rafters to create an air barrier, making the attic part of the building envelope. But it’s not particularly cheap: “For the average Atlanta attic, it will cost between $4,000 and $5,500,” Wickstead said. “But you’ll notice lower heating and cooling costs immediately.”

> Encapsulate the crawlspace: This is a DIY project that will vastly improve the air quality in the house. Install a vapor barrier and insulated foam boards along the side walls to create a tight seal.

> Eliminate air exchanges: Any spot where warm or cool air is escaping is an energy drain. Most homeowners are familiar with weatherstripping around windows and doors, but what about electrical outlets? An ultracheap (about 15 cents) square of foam insulation behind a switch plate can plug the hole.

> Replace old toilets: “Dual flush toilets are awesome and they start at $260,” Wickstead said. “They’ll decrease water usage up to 30 percent, and it’s something you can change out yourself.”

Ohio September Market Report

The September Market Report in Ohio for single family, residential homes in Montgomery and Greene counties (near Wright Patterson Air Force Base) shows the average monthly sales price continues to rise, proof that it has been 4 months since rock bottom. The average sale price / listing price percentage remained at 96%, which is 2% less than the Real Living Realty average. Although prices are increasing, it is not a huge market gain which still makes Southwest Ohio a great place to invest.
