Make Your Home More Eco-Friendly

Eco Home

Homeowners have become much more eco-conscious in recent years, with energy-saving appliances often preferred to older, less efficient models. This shift towards a ‘greener’ home has been triggered by a greater knowledge of, and commitment to, eco-friendliness, along with the realisation that efficient use of resources leads to drastically reduced utility bills.

EZ Living Interiors created this infographic which features several intelligent ways in which we can make our homes more environmentally friendly. Sometimes all it takes is a modification in behaviour, such as making a point of turning off the lights as soon as you leave a room, using the dishwasher or washing machine only when it is full or ditching baths in favour of a quick shower. Other changes might require simple purchases such as energy-efficient LED light bulbs which last for far longer than standard bulbs.

In the longer-term, you can improve the eco-friendliness of your home through greater insulation in walls and attics, or perhaps the addition of solar panels on your roof. Poorly-insulated homes result in needless heat loss, hence the heating doing overtime in the drab winter months. Investing in heavy curtains is another way of helping to retain heat in colder periods.

Check out the infographic below for further tips on improving your home’s energy efficiency and environmental friendliness – tips which will also improve your bank balance through lower energy costs.
