Title: Energy-saving tips for a more sustainable home


1
  • Energy-saving tips for a more sustainable home

2
  • All of us have our own contribution to the
    present and future condition of our environment.
    That is why, we need to take our own share of
    responsibility to help save our Earth and
    conserve our scarce natural resources. Here are a
    few things we can do to create a more sustainable
    and energy-efficient home.
  • The total world population as of December 2017
    has already reached around 7.6 billion. And there
    is no single person on this planet that does not
    use any of the natural resources provided by our
    Earth. The food we eat, the water we drink and
    use for bathing, the things we use at home, at
    school, and at work, the clothes we wear, and
    much more. Virtually every second of each day our
    resources are drawn from the Earths natural
    resources. This only means that each one of us
    has his or her own contribution to the present
    and future condition of our nature.

  • And because of this, it is important that we also
    do our part in saving the Earth from total
    destruction and in conserving our natural
    resources which are getting scarce nowadays.
    Apart from making a sustainable building design
    for your home, there are a lot of things that you
    can do to help in the green movement.

You do not have to be part of a multi-national
community centre design organization, to join and
actively participate in every activities
organized by your local green movement
organization, or to build your own sustainable
design firms. You can start at home, in your own
household. Here are a few little steps that you
can do to take part of the green movement and to
create a more sustainable home. Utilize solar
energy Many sustainable design companies
recommend installing solar panels, especially if
your area receives an abundant amount of solar
heat. Though this can be a bit costly at first,
installing solar panels on the roof of your house
can greatly help reduce your electricity bill. It
will not only help you save hundreds of dollars
in the long run, it can likewise help conserve
our natural resources and minimize carbon
footprints.

  • Replace conventional light bulbs

  • Conventional light bulbs consume a considerable
    amount of energy most especially when they are
    being used all night or all day long. Consider
    replacing them with more modern and energy
    efficient illumination devices like the LED
    bulbs. Aside from the fact that LED bulbs eat up
    only a portion of the total energy that a
    conventional bulb typically consumes, they also
    last longer.
  • The LED bulb can be more expensive than the
    traditional light bulb. But if you think about
    its long useful life and about how much energy
    you can save, you can say that it is really worth
    your investment.

Go solar
  • Do you have old equipment, devices, or
    instruments that need to be charged to power up?
    How about going solar? For instance, instead of
    using a radio, emergency light, or flashlight
    that needs to be charged using electric power,
    you can opt for solar powered ones. You just have
    to place them outside and let them soak under the
    sun for hours. Once fully charged, you can use
    them anytime you want or need.

Upgrade your home and kitchen appliances
  • Are you still using your decades-old home and
    kitchen appliances like washer, dishwasher,
    refrigerator, freezer, oven, and electric stove?
    How about replacing them with the new modern
    models.
  • Most of the modern home and kitchen appliances
    today are made with energy-efficiency in mind.
    They often consume relatively less water and
    energy to.
