Step 73: Environmental Friendly Home Colors

Picture of Environmental Friendly Home Colors
Paint your home with climate friendly colors. The color of your home can have a large affect on the cost to heat and cool your home.

Light colors reflect the sun's rays, while dark colors absorb them. For cold climates, paint with dark colors, and hot climates, use light colors.
