Giving the Green Light to an Eco-friendly home
These activities do not necessarily seek that you must construct your entire home from scratch.
One of the ways that a person may use to create their homes Eco-friendly is by reducing the number of electrical equipment that uses electricity in the kitchen to only use the ones that are necessary.
Furthermore, we can substitute the use of electronic equipment as is in the case of replacing an electrically powered whisk with a hand powered whisk.
Recycling of food waste is one other obvious thing that a person may do so as to make their home greener.
Recycling of waste involves having a small compost box where one keeps potato peelings and other food waste instead of throwing these waste into the bin.
You can later transfer the items in the compost box to a compost pile outside this means that you will stop generating less garbage leaving free food which you will use to grow your vegetables and plants to feed your family.
Roof insulation is an alternative way that you can use to create your home much greener.
Roof insulation aids in guaranteeing that the heat that cost too much cash and dynamism to manufacture does not escape or disappear through the ceiling of your house.
If you use roof insulation material that is made up of the recyclable material, you will be double guaranteed that your home will be twice Eco-friendly.
The bathroom is one of the places that are left out when it comes to making sure that your house is Eco-friendly.
First of all, the grey water that comes from your bathroom may be used to water the plants in your garden outside.
Secondly, you can add weight to your toilet cistern as this will ensure you use less water as you flush your toilet.
Adding a double or triple glazing to your window which helps in forming a protective barrier over the windows that helps in inhibiting heat loss and therefore preserving the heat which costs energy and money to produce.
The floors are one last area that you can use to increase the Eco – credentials of your home. You can decide to use carpet in place of tiles as carpets are much better in keeping your house warm as it acts as an insulator.
You may also explore the use of under floor heating as this can assist in warming the whole home for a relatively little amount of energy saving you money.
