Housecall did a great job on a condo I was looking to purchase in Carlsbad. Very detail oriented and explained everything to me after the home inspection. I highly recommend this company.         -  Sam in SD, San Diego

The number of individuals who are interested in living a greener lifestyle seems to increase each day. Eco-friendly products are indeed part of the process of making a change. Consider the following five items, as each can be used to start living green.

Solar Lights: The process of switching your standard outdoor lighting to solar lighting is quite simple. Any area in which you make use of outdoor lighting, such as walkways, paths, around the pool, near gardens and more are perfect spaces for solar lighting. The cost of solar lights is very reasonable, and setup is extremely simple since no wiring or electricity is required.
Programmable Thermostat: Have you ever left home only to remember that the heat or air was left on a higher or lower temperature than you desire? If you own a programmable thermostat, this will never need to happen again. Programmable thermostats can be set to turn on and off at set times during the day.
Smart Power Strip: Any device that is plugged in will draw energy whether or not it is in use. A smart power strip has the capability to sense when devices that are plugged into the strip have been turned off, and then shut down connected items that are not in use. For example, after the computer has been turned off, power to the printer and other devices will be shut down. Up to 72% of energy can be saved using a smart power strip.
Digital Books: E-books are produced without the need to cut down even a single tree. E-books are accessible on computers, as well as many portable devices such as smartphones, e-readers, tablets, and more.
Water Purifiers: If you wish to have access to clean drinking water without purchasing plastic water bottles, a water purifier is the solution. Water purifiers can remove nearly all of the impurities that are in tap water. They are affordable, and may cost much less than bottled water.
These are just five of the eco-friendly products that are available today. As time goes on, expect to see many more green products for sale online and in stores. As more people realize the true importance of living in a greener manner, demand for products that will help them accomplish that will continue to rise.
