There’s a lot more emphasis on people becoming more energy efficient and environmentally friendly within their home nowadays – and it’s a good way to decrease any energy and electricity bills you may have. Below we have listed the top five ways that you can become more environmentally friendly and not having to pay through the nose to do it either!
The kitchen is one of the most expensive rooms in the home, and if any repairs haven’t been fixed, this can make your bills sky rocket. For example, if you have a leaky faucet, this can make your water bill more expensive that it needs to be. You can even fix this yourself by tightening any loose fittings on the tap. Another common problem is cracks so make sure all the cracks are sealed you avoid the hot air leaving and the cold air seeping in.
Energy Efficient Appliances
Kitchens are rooms that tend to use a lot of electricity, and one thing we can do lower bills and increase our eco visibility is to buy appliances that are already energy efficient. This goes for washing machines, ovens, dishwashers and tumble driers.
Energy Efficient Lightbulbs
More and more homeowners nowadays are using energy efficient lightbulbs as they tend to use 70-75% less energy than a normal, standard lightbulb. They also last longer too!
By simply taking the time to separate our waste and properly recycle it, we are ensuring a safer and better environment to live in. Although it doesn’t save you money, you’re still not losing any in the process and your kitchen isn’t overflowing with rubbish!
Making sure your home and especially your kitchen is well insulated can save you up to 10% on your energy bills. Make sure everywhere is sealed properly to avoid a cold home!
