"The human brain now holds the key to our future. We have to recall the image of the planet from outer space: a single entity in which air, water, and continents are interconnected. That is our home."
-- David Suzuki

Every home can be a green home with GreenWorks Healthy Home Package. The full package is offered to GreenWorks homebuyers as a gift and the assessment is offered to the public for a fee. It is designed to improve the comfort, health, energy efficiency and durability of your home environment.
Many of GreenWorks clients share our concern about global warming. Do your part by improving the performance and livability of your home. Sleep better at night knowing you are taking the steps to reduce the waste your home produces, and improve the energy efficiency of your home.

As green home specialists, GreenWorks has created our own specialized checklist to make any home more green.

Our Healthy Home Assessment is not just a great solution for global warming, during the assessment we provide tips and solutions to improve indoor air quality. With skyrocketing rates of asthma caused by indoor air quality averaging 2-5 times more toxic than outdoor air quality, this is a precious gift for the long-term health of your family.

The package includes:

1) Healthy Home Assessment
Our unique home inspection is conducted by Tom Balderston, building performance consultant, with Conservation Services Group, Inc.

CSG is a national non profit organization to specialize in increasing energy efficiency, tapping renewable energy, and reducing environmental impact and energy-related emissions for your specific project. We provide a detailed report of home inspection findings and recommendations that help homeowners prioritize projects to green their home. The assessment is included in the gift package for GreenWorks homebuyers and is available to the public for a fee.
