Making a green house

You can make your house energy efficient and environment friendly by using natural light, growing environment friendly plants, applying thermal insulation techniques and using low VOC products. Here are a few ways to make your home energy saving and environment friendly.
  • Grow environment friendly plants: Grow such plants which are good for your environment and animals. You can go for perennial plants that live for more than a year and reduce the cost of plantation frequently.
  • Apply thermal insulation technique on walls and roof: Thermal insulation on all outer walls of the house minimizes weather effects and saves energy during summer and winter season. Insulate roof of the house to save energy since it receives solar radiation throughout the day.
  • Use low volatile organic compounds (VOC): Make use of low V.O.C. products to maintain healthy indoor air for good health. Low VOC paint for walls and cleaning products are useful. Do not use particle boards or medium density board for articles of furniture as they have adhesives releasing urea formaldehyde which is harmful to health.
  • Utilize natural light and CFL:Use sunlight from doors, windows, ventilators and openings and enjoy the benefits of natural light. You should opt for energy saving compact florescent light, CFL bulb/ tubes. These bulbs/tubes produce less heat and save energy required for thermal comfort
