Making My Home Energy Efficient

Having an energy efficient home is not a dream anymore and people around the world can make their home much energy efficient by making some changes and sure those changes are not only cost effective in the long run but also environmentally friendly.

Energy efficient home means that you simply have more energy for less. You don’t need to install some sort of sophisticated machinery in your home to make your home energy efficient, even simple architectural changes can serve the purpose.

Like, if you are building/constructing your home then it becomes easier to design it the way it is recommended to be energy efficient to conventional way of making or constructing homes. It’s even thought that going green is expensive as it requires all modern time sophistications that make a home energy efficient and environment friendly, but studies and surveys show that spending a little more investment at the time of designing and constructing saves 10 times more in the long term than it spent on conventional type of designing and construction.

Even though, if your home is constructed in a conventional way, you still can bring so many changes that make it energy efficient. Like installing solar panel systems,  they do not use conventional type of expensive natural resources, e.g. coal, gas, and oil to generate electricity rather it absorbs sunlight to generate electricity.

Insulation is also helpful as it provides resistance to heat flow and carefully insulated home not only decreases heating and cooling costs but also it increases coziness too. There are four types of insulations you can choose from and use in your home.

  • Blown in insulation (Cellulose and Fiberglass)
  • Spray foam insulation ( Open and closed cell)
  • Blankets of insulation (Fiberglass and Rockwool)
  • Foam board insulation (Eps, Xps, and ISO)

Proper ventilation is another source of more energy efficient home as properly placed windows and doors keep the home impeccably cool during summer season. It is also a great source of light as there comes no need to use bulbs to lighten your home during day time at all.

Using the latest technology base home appliances that are labeled as “energy star certified”  not only save a sufficient amount of your monthly billing but also such appliances require less cost of maintenance as compare to the old convention type of appliances. The proper familiarity of operating such appliances at the most efficient mode is also important to maximize their efficiency. If you even plan to go on some vacation, you need to unplug the appliances even if they are off because there is still an energy that is getting wasted.

Traditional type of lighting also has a huge impact on your monthly billing expenses. Such bulbs which are known as tungsten filament or GLS (general lighting services) and were designed 100 years ago are highly considered as inefficient in the current and for the upcoming eras. Converting from these bulbs to more sophisticated like compact fluorescent lamps (CFL) and light emitting diodes (LED) can help both in energy usage and savings.

Last but not the least is to plant trees around your home or in the locality. Their shade in the scorching summer heat will keep your house cool and it will decrease the energy usage of Air Conditions that are used in such a hot season.

Many governments, semi government, private, non-profit organizations, Agencies and programs like US Green Building Council (USGBC), The Green Building Initiatives (GBI), the US Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), The Green Communities Initiative (GCI), The National Association of Home Builders (NAoHB) etc.  are trying hard to disseminate the information and educate people  by doing surveys, studies, conferences, etc. at all levels from ground to huge business empires. The outcome of their effort is significant and not only the people from every walk of life but also the huge business organizations are adopting it.
