How you can keep your energy bills down and make your property Eco Friendly
Modern materials and thoughtful design can keep the energy bills low in any home, whether new or old. This is especially the case in an Eco Home living environment where materials are being highly developed for this very purpose. Likewise, building techniques and approaches are being advanced in an effort to ensure homes are highly energy efficient with not too much heat escaping.
The purpose of living in an Eco Property is to achieve a home with low running costs, that is comfortable, bright and airy, and with a decreased demand in the use of fossil fuels. That said, there are a number of simple, obvious measures which can be taken in the average everyday home to good effect.
Simple measures can include the installation of ‘aerogel’ internal insulation boards on the walls, which can really improve the level of energy efficiency within the property. Refurbishing the sash windows will also vastly improve comfort by eliminating draughts, and hence reduce the amount of heat energy which can escape. Thermal imaging have very much proven that even with these minor improvements we can radically reduce tenants’ heating bills.
There are also the more established measures such as insulating the loft and walls throughout the property. All of these measures can do a great deal for the long term interest of the property and help in the event of the resale of the property.
Overall, with the desirability of living in an Eco Friendly home environment, you can make massive savings day to day. You can also be sure in your mind you are doing your bit for the environment, which is helpful given the importance of addressing sustainability in this day and age.
