Happy St. Patrick’s Day – Go Green!
As towns and cities across the UK are wearing green and celebrating the festivities.
We thought we would put together five ways you can make your home greener so you can ‘Go Green’ everyday.
Use Energy Efficient Appliances
Upgrading to energy efficient appliances can help to reduce your energy usage and save money on your utility bills. Look for appliances with the Energy Saving Trust Recommended label, like air fryers. This indicates that they meet energy efficiency guidelines set by the government.
Install a Smart Thermostat
Installing a smart thermostat can help to reduce your energy usage and save money on your heating bills. You can control the temperature remotely and set schedules for when you’re away from home, which can help to reduce energy waste and lower your energy bills.
Improving insulation in your home can help to keep it warm in the winter and cool in the summer, which can reduce your energy usage and save money on your utility bills.
Install Solar Panels
Installing solar panels on your roof can help to generate clean, renewable energy and reduce your reliance on the grid. The UK government offers incentives such as the ECO4 grant scheme for those on a low income to help pay for the installation of solar panels and other energy efficiency measures.
Consider Green Heating
Consider replacing your conventional boiler with a renewable heating system like an air source heat pump. These systems use renewable energy sources to heat your home, are more energy efficient and can reduce your carbon footprint.
By implementing these green solutions, you can make your UK home more energy efficient and reduce your carbon footprint.
Not only will this help to protect the environment, but it can also save you money on your energy bills in the long run.
