Top Tips For an Eco-Friendly Home
Insulate Your Home
Making sure your home is well insulated means that heat will be efficiently retained. Therefore you should need less heating to keep your home warm. This means that you will be using less energy which is good news for the environment as you will have lower energy consumption. It will also save you money on your energy bills.
There are a few ways you can insulate your home:
Reduce Waste & Recycle
Reducing waste and recycling is a great way to be environmentally responsible. Reusing items where possible is a great idea. Making sure that you minimise general waste will save you money.
Recycling as much waste as possible is the best way to reduce and prevent unnecessary rubbish from going to landfill. You can recycle most household packaging and day to day items.
Larger bulk items such as fridges, old furniture and mattresses can be collected by specialist rubbish clearance companies who will recycle as much of it as possible instead of dumping it in a landfill site – click here for more information on environmentally friendly rubbish removal services in Kent.
Renewable Energy Sources
Have you considered using renewable energy sources to power your home? Solar panels on the roof of your home harness the sun’s energy and convert it to electricity. You could also buy your electricity from companies using wind power.
