As a company we always try to collaborate with the environment by working with materials that are part of this and are not toxic.
Because we know how important the environment is and because we want to collaborate to make it grow more and more, we share with you five tips with which you can achieve an eco-friendly house.
1. Consider Window Replacement to Boost Energy Efficiency:
If your house still has old drafty units that are more than 15 years old, it is time to consider a window replacement project to improve the thermal performance of your home. All modern Energy Star-rated units are double or triple glazed to ensure a significant boost in energy efficiency and provide extra comfort.
2. Try task lighting:
Task lighting provides increased light for specific tasks in a room like eating or reading, instead of lighting the whole room with a bulb that's not that energy-efficient, try using more eco-friendly options to light just that one area.
3. Take advantage of natural daylight:
Give your home a makeover, and arrange furniture to optimize natural light. More sunshine is better for our health. Don't block windows with chairs or couches. Make the window the focal point of the room if you can.
4. Every degree counts:
If you reduce the temperature in your home to 19°C from 22°C, you will see a savings of about 6.5% in natural gas savings. If that's too chilly for you, add a sweater and a second pair of socks.
5. Choose natural insulation:
Natural Insulation materials include hemp, cellulose, wood fiber and grass. Many of them are biodegradable and safe to handle unlike traditional insulation made from fibreglass. Many of the natural ones listed here also help to control humidity in the home by absorbing moisture when it's humid and releasing it when the air is dryer. When it comes to large projects like insulation it's best to talk to an expert.
