GREEN MAINTENANCE
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Click on a question to get the answer.

Why do green buildings cost more than conventional buildings?

This is not necessarily true. Comparing different types of building, i.e. one with solar panels vs. a traditional building will show an initial upfront cost but the operating costs will be much more economical. This return on investment should cover and offset the initial upfront costs compared with a traditional building.

Which is better: a recycled material or a natural material?

There is no perfect material or product. All materials in one form or another have a negative effect on our environment. The key is setting priorities for what you want to accomplish with that material or product and then minimizing the environmental impact of that material or product. Some key questions to consider when making your decision are:
a) Where did this material or product come from?
b) What are the by-products of its’ manufacturer?
c) How is the material delivered and installed?
d) How is the material maintained and operated?
e) What do we do with them once we are done with the materials?

How can we set up a recycling program?

Identify a central location for recycling in your building. In the past when land fill space was readily available and disposal fees were low, recycling or reuse was not economically feasible. Now recycling is the norm and many municipalities require recycling of corrugated paper, plastic and metal products. Designate a used goods area for reusable items like binders, folders, boxes and padded envelopes that may be reused.

How can I conserve water?

Use water efficient fixtures, flow restrictors on existing fixtures, low flow toilets or waterless urinals. Lowering potable water use for toilets, showerheads, faucets, and other fixtures can reduce the total amount withdrawn from natural water bodies. Water efficiency cuts costs by reducing the amount of water that must be treated, heated, cooled and distributed all of which requires energy.

Does our heating or cooling operate over night?

Yes, unless you manually set your temperature down or up depending on your location. You may also be able to shut down your system overnight. A final option is to have a programmable thermostat. Using programmable thermostats automatically adjusts the target temperature for your system so you can minimize the amount of energy your system will use.
