There are many things you can do to make your home energy efficient. You don’t need to rip out the walls to do so, either! There are plenty of ways to begin without spending your paycheck to do so. But, where do you start? Revampt Goods gives 4 easy steps to begin your journey of environmentally friendly living!
1. Buy Energy Saving Bulbs
Did you know trading just one incandescent bulb for one compact fluorescent prevents emission of over 400 pounds of greenhouse gases? If you don’t like the light from the new energy saving bulbs, go to edf.org, The Environmental Defense Fund’s website, to help you find the right bulb for your home. The website guides you in choosing the right color, brightness, size and shape you desire.
2. Purchase Recycled Furniture
It’s common sense, but difficult if you haven’t planned ahead. When you need a chair, your first thought would be to run to the furniture store or Ikea. When living green, consider purchasing recycled or repurposed whenever possible. Revampt Goods has plenty of home furnishing options to choose from, or make some yourself with our DIY projects!
3. Fit Showers For High-Efficiency Showerheads
High Efficiency showerheads, or otherwise known as low-flow and restricted showerheads, help conserve water through daily use. Showers are necessary, but the amount of water one uses can vary, and by choosing a low-flow option, you will be conserving water and doing your part for sustainable living!
4. Hang Thick Curtains at Windows
You don’t have to live in a dark cave, however, with strategically designed drapes, you can drastically cut down your energy bill. By pulling the drapes across the windows during the day in warm months while you are away from home, you will be keeping your house cool without the aid of air conditioning and lowering your energy bill at the same time!
