The Benefits of Renting an Energy Efficient Apartment

In addition to an excellent job market and many great cultural amenities, a comfortable climate contributes to Greenwood's steady growth. We experience all four seasons, with warm summers and mild winters; nevertheless, homeowners and renters are still concerned with maximizing energy efficiency. Well-designed, efficient homes and apartments can save renters a lot of money, especially during the hot and humid summer months.

 

Regency Park recently renovated and updated our apartments with energy efficient features as part of our green-initiative. In this article and the next, we will discuss energy efficiency, the benefits of renting a green apartment or house, and what renters can do to improve the efficiency of their homes.

Reducing Your Carbon Footprint

Reducing your carbon footprint as a renter is advantageous for you and future generation. Regency Park is very Proud to announce our "Going Green Initiative" with the launching of our community-wide comprehensive recycling program. In addition, we are in the process of re-lamping our apartments with LED lighting to reduce energy consumption.

These efforts complement our water runoff "Retention Pond" which allows runoff water to be filtered before it is slowly released back to the environment. This ensures that the water is free from sediment and other pollutants which can be hazardous to the health of the overall community.

At Regency Park, we are making great efforts to reduce our carbon footprint on our great Planet Earth.
