Creating a Sustainable Home

Creating a Sustainable Home

Sustainability is about more than saving water. It includes energy, air quality and the environment. Learn to identify and address the factors that contribute to a sustainable home — now and for the future — during a free workshop Wednesday, July 25.

Would you describe your home as being efficient? Do you know what factors would make it inefficient?

If you don’t know the answers to those questions, you can find them during the Home Efficiency Workshop on Wednesday, July 25, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at William R. Sinkin Eco Centro, 1802 N. Main Ave., across the street from San Antonio College.

The free workshop will cover everything that contributes to making a home efficient from the standpoint of energy, water, air quality, landscape and the environment. In other words, creating a sustainable home now and for the future.

Homeowners will learn to identify and address the factors that contribute to home efficiency, including ventilation, insulation, leak detection, condensation capture, irrigation efficiency and sustainable landscapes.

The event is free and open to the public, but space is limited. Sign up here to make sure you get a seat. If you have questions or need more information, call Jess Mayes at 210-486-1426 or send an email.

Bonus: the workshop is WaterSaver Rewards eligible! This is an easy way to earn rewards points and improve your home’s efficiency.
