Nowadays it is more than possible to make a home decoration that guarantees energy efficiency. The digital era of the present has developed installations that break with the traditional moulds to adapt to the lacks and needs of each home. In this sense, the user not only contributes to a cleaner and greener world, but, consequently, experiences a considerable reduction in the money to be paid in the electricity bill every month.

This article aims to show a couple of very useful ideas that can be applied to any type of building and that, without a doubt, reduce energy costs to enjoy a sustainable home.

 

How to save on air conditioning systems

The heating corresponds to the total of the budget in an electric bill that occupies a greater percentage. About 50% of the money to be paid comes from air conditioning systems, such as air conditioners or stoves. One of the most avant-garde ideas is thermal insulation. This is a coating on the walls, floor and ceiling of the house that traps heat and cold to regulate the temperature inside the house.

In this way, heat is provided in the winter and cold in the hottest seasons to avoid turning on the electrical network systems that not only consume energy but also pollute the planet.

Lighting Saving Tips

First of all, in order to generate prudent savings, it is advisable to review the electricity tariff, as well as the contracted electrical power , in order to know if consumption really meets needs or if, on the contrary, it is at levels above our possibilities. In this sense, users should consider whether it is worth adding to the hourly discrimination, a feature that allows the price of the kilowatt (kW) to be lowered for a few hours, from 10 p.m. to 12 a.m.

Another of the cleanest and simplest applications for saving energy resources in the home leads the consumer to reduce consumption by making the most of natural sunlight. To do this, it is recommended to have large windows capable of illuminating, in general terms, a large part of the rooms.

Finally, the bet for the LED technology in those houses or corners that cannot catch in a due way the solar natural light, can be the most efficient solution. These low-density bulbs consume between 8 and 9 times less than incandescent ones and can be regulated automatically. Thus, on the occasions when the sun is able to reach the windows, their intensity is reduced and, during the night, they are increased.

 

Look for efficient decoration

Some factors that reduce resources can be outlined below:

  • Paint the walls, especially those in the living room and kitchen which are more general spaces, in light colours, such as different shades of white, light blue or yellow. This range of possibilities generates a greater luminosity in the house.
  • Mirrors in the corridors create a greater sense of spaciousness. They need not be abused, but could be installed in areas where more light is needed.
  • Replacing the bath with a shower tray saves up to 8 litres of water a day, and the user gains space in the bathrooms, which are often unflattering places to operate.
  • It uses recyclable and biodegradable materials for decoration, such as bamboo, wood, which not only bring a rustic and modern style to the house, that is, it will never go out of style, but also promotes a more intelligent and healthy consumption for nature.
