Tips on making your commercial real estate property green

Getting the right light bulbs for a property is important.

There are many ways that commercial property managers can make their buildings more energy-efficient, and taking the time to make these changes can actually make a significant difference.

A property that has roof space can actually get insulated by taking some plants up to the top of the property. Gardening on the rooftop will help keep air from entering or escaping through the roof, and this can make a significant difference when heating or cooling a property.

The bathroom can also see some important improvements by getting sensors on faucets. This will prevent water from being wasted. Another great addition to the property is to use fluorescent light bulbs. This options actually cuts down on energy significantly, as it costs as much as two-thirds less than incandescent bulbs.

Improving air quality is another good way to make energy-efficiency better. Certain paints and finishes can harm employees, as well as the environment around them.

Recycling management through a solid-waste management agency can make a difference, as well. There are many disposal costs that can be cut from a building's expenses this way.
