Improving Your Home and the Environment

Howdy! My name is Dylan. This blog details everything I have learnt about environment protection and green energy. I became interested in this topic a couple of years ago when I purchased an old house. The land around the house had been contaminated so I called in an environmental contractor to clean the land up. While they were on the property, I asked their advice about installing solar panels and other green energy solutions on my home. The contractors gave me some great advice and I learnt a lot. Since then, I have continued my education by borrowing books from the local library.
