The Green House

All information you need for a green house.

Having a Green House

An ecological house does not have to cost you a fortune: there are simple and inexpensive solutions to rearrange your house in order to have minimal environmental impact.

All we want that our house to be “green”, where energy will cost almost nothing and be perfectly clean air. But many of the wonders that protects the environment and make life easier, such as solar panels and Eco building materials, are simply too expensive or cannot be applied in the area where we live.

That does not mean you have to give up attempts to make our home more “friendly” with the environment. The first thing you can do is to be careful how you redecorate a house that you already have.

Reduce energy consumption

To save power, thus limiting carbon emissions, it is recommended to isolate the home with polystyrene and make sure the windows or doors, there are no cracks that allow cold air to enter in the house. It is good to replace old carpentry if it is not well insulated.

Such changes in the home can cost a lot, but we must consider that they are amortized over time through lower maintenance bills.

Lower water consumption

The same role is played by the vents for taps that reduce water consumption by 50%. In the bathroom you may install a battery with two levels, one being the low water consumption, and the normal one which should be used only when it is absolutely necessary. For low power consumption is useful also a low pressure shower head.

Choose natural materials

The choice of materials for the floor is sometimes quite hard: parquet is an ideal choice because it is a natural material, good insulation and very elegant, but the cost is quite high. Linoleum is however a cheaper alternative and can give a nice look to the home.

Recondition furniture

Reconditioning furniture is one of the operations that can eliminate many resources consumption, including financial. Armchairs and sofa end up at some time to be old and faded and can wear traces left by pets.

These can be changed, and in any place you can find enough skilled craftsmen workshops that can fix it. On this occasion, you can change the old model with modern upholstery, and why not, can change with ecological leather upholstery.

Old kitchen chairs can be in their turn repaired and vividly painted with ecological paint.
