On the occasion of the World Environment Day, which is celebrated tomorrow, June 5, Univergy Solar has created its Univergy’s Green Week, a week in which you can discover simple and new ways to help reduce your environmental footprint.
Over the course of the week, we have discussed different issues that help in the achievement of our goal: Make responsible purchases, sustainable fashion, or the keys to good recycling. Today we are going to discuss how to turn your home into sustainable housing:
Changing flow restriction systems in taps and showers or installing dual-flush valves in toilet cisterns are some measures that can save a lot of water, while using the same amount. In addition, these are jobs that you can do yourself at home.
Avoid leaving electronic devices, such as the TV or computer, on standby and turn them off completely.
Disconnect plugs from chargers and from electronic devices when not in use.
When performing tasks such as ironing, avoid ironing a different thing every day, instead, gather everything you need and do it all at once.
Do not use air conditioning or heating with the house windows open.
To the extent possible, try to consume energy in the off-peak hours (morning and evening).
Use the residual heat of the oven to heat up the rest of your food, i.e., if you have used the oven to cook one dish you can heat the other food in the oven also, instead of using the glass ceramic hob or microwave, and vice versa.
By following these 5 simple and easy-to-implement ideas you will transform your house into a sustainable home and reduce your environmental footprint.
