Just the idea of making these changes in your house and making it a lot more green could be overwhelming to most homeowners. It’s hard to know just where to start and which methods of green energy will work best in your home and for the environment. Carefully read this advice to figure out what is ideal for you regarding the use of green energy.
Use a toilet designed to conserve water. Some studies show that flushing the toilet accounts for half the water used in a typical home. Older toilets use about 5 gallons per flush, while the newer, water-saving toilets need only 1.6 gallons of water for each flush, cutting your annual water usage by up to 70%.
As odd as it sounds, the majority of people do not bother to disconnect or turn off lights and electronics when they are not being used. If everyone did this on a regular basis, an enormous amount of energy could be saved. Resolve to turn off lights and equipment when you are not using them.
If you’d like to cut down your hot water bill, look into using solar energy. You can purchase a hot-water system that is run by solar energy. Indirect or direct circulation systems
are both available. The indirect system is best if you don’t want to worry about your pipes freezing in the winter.
Try using a dehumidifier in your home. Air that is humid usually feels warmer. Running a dehumidifier will suck moisture out of the air and make it feel cooler while using less energy and costing you less to run. You might avoid using your A/C for longer than you thought.
The type of green energy system that will work for your home depends on the location and orientation of your house. This means that green energy ideas will vary from home to home. Some will work for any home, and some are site-specific. Use the advice that works in your situation and come up with some of your own money saving, earth friendly tips.
