4 tips for living the home sustainably
Energy-saving and sustainability
Energy-saving and sustainability in general, have become part of our everyday life.
The importance of reducing the use of plastic, saving water, not wasting food, and remembering to turn off the lights, are small but very important tricks that can help us save money and be more sustainable. But let’s see other 4 suggestions for living the home sustainably.
1. Keep an eye on the energy label
One of the best things you can do to make your home “greener” is to keep an eye on the energy label on your appliances. As you can notice, the energy label indicates an A to G scale where the letter A is the highest class and the letter G is the lowest. This tool could help us save energy by choosing a high-efficiency appliance. Moreover, choosing an A-class home appliance will let us pay lower bills.
As an example, let’s talk about washing machines. Taking care of the environment and being sustainable doesn’t mean that you have to give up on power, performance and superior hygiene. In fact, there is a special washing machine that is extremely efficient, long-lasting, and sustainable: the new Hoover H-WASH 500. Thanks to its new generation Eco-Power Inverter engine, the H-WASH 500 is the best of its category in reducing consumption from 35% compared to a D/E class.
This washing machine is not only energy efficient but also environmentally friendly because of its Eco Dose mode and Auto Care mode. Through these two programs, H-WASH 500 can indicate the best dosage you should use based on the washing machine's load and set the appropriate program for better efficiency, perfect hygiene, and lower waste. But remember that it is always better to start washing machines and dishwashers at full load not to waste energy and water.
2. Welcome low flow taps
Turning off the water while brushing your teeth is for sure an excellent action, but we have another tip for you: the low flow taps. Low flow taps help you to stop water waste, decrease your water cost and are more energy-efficient.
3. Goodbye Standby
After remembering to turn off the light, turning off electronic devices on standby is a good way to save energy. We are sure that in everyone’s homes there are a lot of devices such as computers, PlayStations, coffee machines etc, that always remain on standby mode. You can conserve a lot of energy just by remembering to turn off these devices when you are not using them.
4. Coldest house, coldest planet
It is a good habit to reduce the temperature of your home by a few degrees. A small adjustment that greatly helps in saving energy and money.
