When you call in a Tulsa electrician to make your home greener, they will not be addressing the color of your siding or your lawn or landscape. Instead they will be working with you to create a plan of subtle, or even out of site changes to make your home more energy efficient.

In the past few years there have been a lot of changes designed to reduce power usage, increase energy efficiency and introduce alternate sources in homes and businesses. One essential factor is calling in an expert in the field. The Tulsa electrician you call should be a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) accredited technician.

If you are just beginning to learn about the Green movement, these are some terms you will likely encounter:  Daylight harvesting, Energy-saving devices, Energy performance optimization, Light pollution reduction, Reverse metering, Resource reuse and Building reuse. Other terms that you have likely already heard of include Renewable energy, Green power, Solar power and Wind power.

There are many reasons homeowners choose to make their home greener including cost savings and environmental impact. If you are planning new construction take the time to evaluate the options now so you can include them while you are still in the design stage. For retrofitting projects, there may be less options or more restrictions, but working with a professional can help you understand the scale of changes you want to make.

Whether you want to call in a Tulsa electrician for small adjustments to move towards greener living, or you have a larger improvement in mind, you will be pleasantly surprised at all the options you have. With so many choices, calling in an expert can guide you through the process and help you make the right choices for your home and your goals.

You’ll want the experience of a company that worked on projects following green certified building practices. In the Tulsa area, contact Colburn Electric to be connected with a LEED certified electrician and get started on the transformation of your home.
