Pro Tips to make your home eco-friendly
Switch to LED Lights
When compared to other light sources such as bulbs and CFL lamps, LED lights are an exceptional option of lighting and are also energy-efficient and have a long life. Though initially, LED was used mainly in household gadgets, nowadays it is widely used in many apartments in Kerala. Did you know that LED lights can last up to 10 years? Though cost wise it is a bit on the higher side, you do get the best value for your money. By switching to the use of LED lights, you are thus saving more energy and doing your part of eco-friendly living.
Make Use of Solar Energy
Solar panels are the best means to go green and reduce your electricity consumption. Though the price associated with the installation and setting-up of solar panels is considered a bit costly, your expenses over it will be soon turned into profit by means of your savings that you will be making on your electricity bills. Making use of solar panels as an alternative source of energy, helps you to lower your dependency on the electricity provider. Thereby you are wisely making use of the naturally available source of solar power and being environmentally responsible. Villas in Kerala are seeing a rising trend in switching to solar energy as an alternative to the conventional power supply system.
Plant More Trees
With your increased energy consumption, there could be a rise in carbon emissions from your homes. Though in small, unnoticeable amounts, these when happening for a longer period of time, actually affects the purity of the ecosystem. Imagine so many houses emitting carbon over many years. That would really create a not-so-favorable environment, right? Hence, do your part in taking the initiative to plant more trees in your surroundings. The various projects by Malabar Developers, have always emphasized the importance of including more trees and greenery. Thus you can also see a nature-friendly system created at our villas in Calicut, Flats in Kottayam, luxury apartments in Kochi, and Flats in Trivandrum
Make Use of Low Energy Appliances
Electrical appliances constitute 30% of your electricity usage as they require a lot of electricity. The manufacturers of these are constantly striving to create a better version of these appliances. These are already available in the market with some of the major brands. Do your bit of research and switch to the use of low energy consumption appliances, be it your air conditioners, washing machines, geysers, water heaters, etc. Making sure that they are energy-efficient, will lead to eco-friendly living.
Make Efforts To Save Water
A common mistake that we or the children in our homes do is to leave the tap on or leave the tap to drip water slowly. This in turn can increase your water consumption and also lead to increased electricity bills. “Water is precious, Save water.” We have been hearing it right from school. But, when are we going to practice?
