Do You Really Need a "Consult" to "Green" Your Home or Office? More and more we see that our clients are eager to abandon and to remedy energy-wasting situations in their homes and offices. "Greening Up" means finding ways to create a more environmentally friendly home. This sounds like a good idea, but, again, we are asked: do we really need a professional consultation to "Green" your home or office?
As Eco Certified® Real Estate Consultants we are asked that question more frequently, as interest in sustainable practices increases. Some or our clients have asked us for referrals for professional consultants who can evaluate their home for indoor and outdoor eco-friendly improvements. An analysis might take into account:
•1. improving the building's energy consumption
(swap out regular bulbs for compact fluorescents)
•2. consideration of air quality
( nontoxic spray insulation such as Icynene
•3. review of water quality
•4. an overview of appliance efficiency
(condenser coils behind the refrigerator- semi-annual cleaning to maximize efficienc)
•5. landscaping (native)
•6. renewable energy (solar)
We happily refer clients to our Asheville Area Sustainable/Green Resources List.
We have developed a SURVEY that helps to pinpoints what eco-consulting services a client may desire. After reviewing the survey, we are better able to refer our clients to eco consultants on the Sustainable/Green Resources List.
We have compiled -and I would like to emphasize- that we have very, very carefully complied said List over many years. We know the folks on our list. We have watched them at work. We know how satisfied our clients have been with their services.
But what about eco-consulting services in other cities across the USA? Here are a few I found. Please note: I do NOT know these people, so do not make any representation as to their excellence.

NOTE: Eco-consultants may charge anywhere from $99 to a few hundred dollars for a home analysis and recommendations
