But where do you begin? Bicycle to work? Plant a tree? Save a whale? You might be surprised to learn that one of the greatest areas of carbon impact is the homes we live in. They consume energy and water all the time. So this would be a good place to begin and we’ve got you covered.

I’ll bet you didn’t know that the greatest water consuming appliance in your home is not the shower, it’s the commode. That’s why every Decker Properties apartment is outfitted with the latest in low flow technology. So go ahead and enjoy that long hot shower in your custom walk-in tile shower like at the Mayfair Apartments in Waupun. And don’t be a slob and leave your towel on the floor. Put it in your water saving energy efficient front load washer.

The beauty of a front load washing machine is not just that it uses less water. It also more completely spins the cloths dry, requiring less drying time, saving energy and you money.

You’ll also find that your heating system is among the most efficient ever designed. The apartments we’ve been building feature in floor radiant heat. That’s a fancy way of saying that the heat tubes are buried in the floor – out of site, out of mind and very efficient. It’s also why your walk-in shower has a heated floor.

Between all of the water saving devices, energy efficient appliances and heating system, you can go green and save green without giving it another thought. Being fashionable has never been this easy.
