Tips For Making Your Home Eco-Friendly

We can all do our part to help the environment. So, let's take a look at what can be done around your home to live sustainably.

Choose water efficient fixtures and appliances

The unpredictability of seasons means we never know when a drought is just around the corner. That's why installing water saving toilets and showerheads in places like the bathroom will help to conserve your water usage and keep the bills down.

Choose appliances with the best star rating, the higher number of stars the better energy savings. This goes for air conditioning and heating units too; they equate to approximately 40% of energy consumed within a home.

Recycle, reuse and compost

Reduce your household waste where you can. Choose glass over plastic and aim to compost food waste. Start a vegetable garden and use the nutrients from the compost to grow your own produce. There is no need for plastic packaging when you harvest your own. This will help to reduce waste going to landfill and the release of nasty gases that are harmful to the environment.

Install solar panels

Solar panels not only do their part for the environment by providing clean energy, but they will save you money and increase the value of your property. Most solar panels come with long lasting warranties taking the risk out of the investment.

Insulate your home

Keep your energy costs down with a well-insulated home. Insulation will reduce the need for high usage of heating and cooling throughout the winter and summer months. The right insulation in a home works effectively in both seasons to block and retain heat.

Add some greenery

Plants help to purify the air. By adding greenery within the home, they will effectively reduce carbon dioxide and pollutants levels while keeping indoor temperatures down.
