A Green Home, A Green Business, A Green Future



Why is going green today so important? Well, just last week fifteen thousand scientists released a shared doomsday memo. Essentially, they stressed that if we continue living and treating the planet the way we have been, then it will lead to catastrophic consequences in the future. In short, the planet will become uninhabitable within the next century. Now, it is important to understand this is not the first time the importance of correcting the course for society has been mentioned. The note referred to is a continuation of one that was released in the 80’s.

As well as this, there is the issue of power outages. The world population continues to grow at an alarming rate, and this puts a lot of pressure on energy sources, making things difficult for energy providers who are helping people keep the power on.

On top of this, there’s trouble with costs. It’s fair to say that if you’re struggling with costs of your home and your daily life or even to run your business, energy costs are having an impact.

So, what do you do about this? Well, there are both large and small ways you can change things and do your part to go green.

Small Changes

Small changes are almost endless. For instance, you can start by switching the bulbs that you are using in your home or business to the energy-saving variety. LED bulbs are best for this, and it’s certainly something that you want to think about when you’re decorating your home in fairy lights this festive season. There are LED options that you can purchase.

Do you constantly forget to switch off the electronic devices in your home? If so, you may want to consider getting timer plugs. Timer plugs will allow you to ensure that devices are switched off automatically and ensure that power is not wasted.

Or, how about electrical devices in general? This is certainly going to be an important consideration for business owners. What we’re talking about here is replacing the electrical devices with machines that are far more energy friendly. You’ll certainly see a difference in your electric bill if you do this.

Bigger Changes

Businesses and homeowners can also make larger changes to go green, like improving the exterior of their home. An example of this could be changing garage doors on both business properties and homes. Garage doors are often sturdy, but they don’t always trap warmth in the home. This issue can be corrected with insulated roll up garage doors. These can be added to business properties and homes to ensure that heat is indeed trapped inside and even be a higher resistance to wind.

Another major change you can make would be to the windows. You can get double or triple pane glass to ensure that heat doesn’t escape this way either keeping things warm and cosy in your home and the office.

We hope this helps you see why it’s so important to stay green and how you can build up a greener home or business.
