Reducing the consumption in your home

Today, we are going to introduce you to some notions on reducing the electricity and fuel consumption in your home. There is a bigger emphasis on saving and protecting the environment these years, and if you care about our planet, you will want to opt for the ideas we present here.

We will try to make it as affordable and not time consuming for you as possible while making it possible for you to pay less in bills while helping the environment at the same time. Awesome isnt it? Well, we feel that it is awesome too.

So let’s get into it:

1 – Get a solar panel

A solar panel saves on consumption by using an already available and almost infinite resource, the sun. We all know that the sun is a much more powerful and reliable resource than our normal electricity source ( it can go off, the installation can burn, plus it costs money to use it. )

Solar powers cost nothing. Just pay once for the material ( they are really cheap these days ) and you are ready to go. No bills, no short circuits, and no damage to the environment either.

2 – Isolate your home

Isolating your home helps in not letting the heat get out of the house, enabling you to have your heating system functioning with less consumption, on a lower degree, both helping you save your money but to help the environment at the same time.

Isolation carpets are really cheap at square meter and they are really nice to walk on. Another option is to have it installed in your walls. They are called “isolation papers” and are as cheap as the isolation carpets we mentioned. Buy and see how good they are yourself.

3 – Switch to gas

If you still are using carburants like coal, wood, or anything else that releases a high amount of toxic chemicals, then we suggest that you opt for a gas installation as soon as possible. They use a natural gas that does not disturb the environment and release no other gasses ( they only consume oxygen in consequence ). They cost much less than wood and coal carburants and dont do the damage to the air and earth the fuel you are using right now do.

4  – Get economy light bulbs

Another way to really save on money and help the environment handle the damage we are doing better is to use light bulbs that use less electricity. How might you say?

According to EnergySavingSecrets.com:

 

Energy saving light bulbs are actually compact fluorescent lamps – and are fundamentally different to traditional light bulbs that are incandescent lamps. The latter can be purchased with different wattage outputs – the typical light bulb used in the home is either 60 watts or 100 watts, which means that is how much power they use up in an hour. The low energy equivalents use only 9 or 11 watts each hour, so represent a substantial power saving, even though they give the same amount of light out.

 

The downside to energy saving light bulbs has been that they are much more expensive than incandescent bulbs – but this is offset by their much longer life. It has been estimated that, over the course of its life, an energy saving light bulb can save about £20 in the cost of the electricity used to run it.
