MAKE YOUR HOME MORE ECO-FRIENDLY

Blog / By TheATeam90

Climate change, global warming, pollution, deforestation, and a slew of other environmental issues are all part of life in today’s world. We may be able to restrict the development of this problem and protect at least a few of the natural resources around us if we all take conscious steps to protect the environment. Look at your personal habits at home to help reduce your personal impact on the environment.

In today’s real estate market, homes with environmentally friendly amenities are a must. Sustainable elements in a home are a simple method to help lower your carbon footprint and benefit the environment, aside from following trends and adding additional value to your home. It’s obvious that promoting a home entails more than merely emphasising its desirable location or overall beauty. For all buyers, green elements are becoming increasingly important. Being environmentally conscious is living in a manner that does not affect the environment. As we work to protect our world from man-made destruction, this way of living is becoming increasingly necessary. There are a variety of methods that an individual might make long-term changes to reduce the negative impact that our daily lives normally have.

There are various ways to help make your home into a more sustainable and eco-friendly living area, whether it’s a tiny addition to an existing room or a total overhaul of your appliances. It can range from a modest modification in your daily routine, such as using a recyclable water bottle, to a larger expenditure, such as installing solar panels to convert your home to renewable energy.

 

It is possible to be environmentally conscious in various aspects of our lives. By following these simple measures, you may make your home more eco-friendly and environmentally sustainable.

  • Invest in Renewable Energy for Electricity

Investing in a renewable energy source for electricity is one option for homes to become more environmentally conscious. Solar panels are a type of renewable energy technology that harnesses the sun’s energy. Installing solar panels is the most sustainable solution in Pakistan because the summer season lasts for a good 8 to 9 months. The solar-powered batteries can meet your demands for much of the evening and nighttime, in addition to delivering energy throughout the day. You can quickly switch to a more renewable source of consumption with relatively low maintenance expenditures.

  • Use Energy Efficient Lighting

Try to use LED bulbs as much as possible when it comes to lighting options for your home. Although they are slightly more expensive than regular light bulbs, they emit 90% of their energy as heat, which means they last longer. The fact that these bulbs heat up the home is another reason why we should invest in LED which is a good method to make your home more eco-friendly in Pakistan, where we have to battle high temperatures for a big part of the year.

  • Insulate Your Homes

Summers in Pakistan are notoriously hot, when the heat from outside can soak into your home and make things extremely uncomfortable. Make careful to verify if the walls have been insulated the next time you move or buy property in Pakistan. In such hot regions, make sure your homes are eco friendly as it will add a layer of defence and so reduces the need to keep your home in sub-zero temperatures. This will save you a lot of money on energy because your home will be much better at controlling the temperature. Insulation comes in a variety of forms, including underfloor insulation, spray-foam insulation, and fibreglass insulation.

  • Build with Sustainable Materials

When it comes to choosing ecologically friendly building materials, there are numerous options available today. There are many options, including sustainability-certified wood products, reused or salvaged wood, and recycled-material insulation. Low-emittance glass should be used for your windows, especially if you live in a hotter climate. This sort of glass is very useful for minimising heat consumption and acting as an insulator inside the home. Additionally, ensure that your home’s architectural design allows for optimal ventilation and natural sunlight.

  • Go Green to Improve Air Quality

Fresh flowers and small indoor plants may brighten up your home’s decor in a variety of ways. They not only give colour and life to your home’s décor, but they also work as a natural filter to improve the air quality. Additionally, if possible, try to create a green space in your home. Depending on the space available and your demands, you can start a simple garden or a kitchen garden. Small gestures can make a big difference. Furthermore, native plant species should be planted. People are now establishing green spaces on their roofs in addition to lawns (both inside and outside the house). You may also help the environment by decreasing your consumption of single-use plastic. The use of plastic shoppers, which may be replaced with biodegradable alternatives, is the most widespread activity that can be eliminated in this regard.
