Do you want to make your home more Eco-friendly?

Written by Ashley Blake
We are all becoming increasingly aware of the need to become more Eco-friendly and help preserve and look after our environment. Every small change can make a difference and a great place to start making these changes is in your very own home.

There are lots of little things we can do in our homes to play our small part in reducing landfill waste, cleaning the air and preserving the environment. Planting a veggie patch and creating a compost bin are not only great ways in reducing waste (and saving money) but also the kids will love getting involved and helping out. Turning out lights when you leave the room, fixing leaking taps and washing your laundry in cold water instead of hot are super easy changes we can all make today!

If you’ve already started small and are looking at making bigger changes to your home, there’s plenty that can be done here too. Although they come with a bigger price tag, these changes will make a huge difference to the environment and your bank account too! A great place to start is by hiring an electrician to install energy efficient light bulbs throughout your home. Making sure your home is well insulated is the next step! A well-insulated home will hold heat properly and therefore take less energy to keep reheating your living spaces. This is one of the smartest ways to save money!

Installing underfloor heating, double glazing your windows and installing solar panels are fantastic ways to make your home more eco-friendly. Although the initial cost is expensive, they are all long term investments which will save you money and reduce energy costs.

The list really does go on from cleaning with natural products to installing water saving shower heads, the changes you can make are endless! The best advice is to START! Start small and you’ll be surprised by the difference you can make!
