1. Smart Thermostats

Your residents can save up to 10% a year on heating and cooling costs¹ with a smart thermostat that turns back temperatures when the unit is not in use. Plus, with fewer on/off cycles, this upgrade extends the lives of your HVAC units.

2. Low-Flow Plumbing

While they may require an initial capital investment, low-flow fixtures and aerators often repay the investment in less than a year. The money saved means more happy residents renewing their leases.

3. LED Lighting

With more than 30,000 hours of life², LEDs last significantly longer than incandescent bulbs and CFLs. Making the switch to LEDs not only saves you money, it reduces maintenance and increases resident satisfaction.

4. Green Products

Today, green products are comparable to traditional products in cost and effectiveness. With sustainable paper products like Renown Select™ sustainable paper solutions, you can provide residents enhanced comfort, superior performance and 100% recycled fibers.

5. Sustainable Cleaning

Cleaning your property with environmentally preferred products minimizes VOC emissions and controls allergens from dyes and fragrances. The result is common areas that are cleaner, safer and healthier for your staff and residents.
