Living in an eco-friendly way is not just a choice, and it’s a necessity! The good news is you can find out some simple but effective ways to make your home more eco-friendly in the post below.

Upgrade your home’s insulation

First of all, if you want your property to be more eco-friendly, you will need to make sure it’s well-insulated. This is because insulation stops the air in your home from escaping. This is particularly important because we tend to use a lot of power to change the temperature of the air in our homes, by making it cooler or warmer to ensure it’s a comfortable place in which to live.

However, when the air we have spent so much money on escapes it means we need to use more energy to regulate the temperature of the new air that replaces it. However, by using insulation, you can maintain the temperature in your home much more easily, which means you can cut down on the fuel you use to heat or cool it.

There are plenty of different types of insulation to consider as well, from spray foam that can be used to insulate gaps in walls, to recycled bottles made into insulation that can be installed in your roof to stop the heat from escaping through the attic.

Buy power from an eco-friendly provider

You can also make your home more eco-friendly by buying your power from the most eco-friendly provider. Although this is often a more complicated task than it first appears to be, the power provider you choose will often have a lot more to do with location than anything else.

However, where there is a choice of providers available positive signs to look out for include providers that prioritize renewable sources of energy, including biomass, geothermal, and solar, and that use the Rankine cycle to harvest it. The reason is that this is the most efficient option, which loses the least amount of energy in the process.

Work with reclaimed building materials

Another way to make sure your home is as eco-friendly as possible is to use recycled or reclaimed materials to build or repair it. Indeed, a great amount of power and waste can be saved by using materials that have already been manufactured, not to mention that you will prevent them from going into landfill.

With that in mind, be sure to use your local reclamation yard for items like doors, fireplaces, baths, and even timber for your next building project.

Switch to underfloor heating

Last of all if you want your home to be eco-friendly you should seriously consider installing underfloor heating. This is because it’s the most efficient kind of heating as it warms the surface which you will have the most direct contact with.

That means you will need to use less energy to heat your home, making it greener, and saving you money at the same time. Oh, and you won’t need to worry about forgetting to put your slippers on in the morning either, as the floor will always be toasty and warm in the winter.
