Staying on-trend and energy-efficient has never looked better, thanks to the team behind the West Coast Power Smart Home at this year’s BC Home + Garden Show, February 19-23, 2014 at BC Place Stadium.
Fresh off the success of the BC Hydro Power Smart home at this fall’s Vancouver Home + Design Show, BC Hydro is back – and better than ever! This year’s dream home promises to be your go-to source for green living inspiration that is as good for your space as it is for the environment. Drawing on inspiration from the best natural features of the west coast – think magnificent wood, spectacular seascapes and breathtaking British Columbian rainforests – the West Coast Power Smart Home will showcase the creative talents of landscaping guru Rob Spytz and the Friendly Decorator herself, Christine Friend. Here’s a sneak peek of what’s in store on the show floor.
Plus, visit the BC Hydro booth to check out Energy Star-approved appliances and a featured selection of environmentally friendly home products. Team Power Smart will also be on-site to offer their two green cents on how to ease your climate conscience and the monthly electricity bill with easily adaptable, energy-efficient alternatives sure to put your home in Mother Nature’s good books for the long haul. Get a head start with these tips:
- Turn down your thermostat by two degrees, and save up to $30 a year
- Use small appliances where possible – they use less energy and cook as effectively
- ENERGY STAR® fixtures are stylish and save approximately 75% more energy than standard fixtures
- Design bright – consider light colours that reflect light to reduce lighting costs
- Switch four bulbs to ENERGY STAR® LEDs, and save up to $16 a year
- Wash two loads of clothes a week in cold water, and save up to $36 a year
- Visit the West Coast Power Smart Home and powersmart.ca for more tips on how to save power and money
Solid proof that compromise between style and sustainability is no longer a necessary negotiation, the Power Smart Dream Home is a west coast-inspired treasure you won’t want to miss at the BC Home + Garden Show.
