Turning Your House Into 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 make their homes Eco-friendly is by reducing the number of electrical equipment that uses electricity in the kitchen to only the ones that are necessary.
Moreover, we can replace the use of electric 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 additional way that you can use to make your house much greener.
Roof insulation helps in ensuring that the heat that cost too much money and energy to produce does not escape or get lost through the ceiling of your house.
If you use roof insulation material that is composed of the recyclable material, you will be double sure that your home will be twice Eco-friendly.
The bathroom is one of the areas that we overlook when it comes to making sure that your home is Eco-friendly.
First of all, the grey water that originates 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 preventing heat loss and therefore conserving 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 opt to use carpet instead of tiles as carpets are much better in keeping your house warm as it acts as an insulator.
You could also discover the use of under floor heating as this can help in heating the entire house for a relatively small amount of energy saving you money.
