Flat Roof

5 Ways to Make Your House Environment-friendly

We are living in the 2016 and the situation of global warming is getting worse with each passing day. So what are your contributions towards making our planet eco-friendly? Let’s start by making your home environment-friendly.

Solar powered roofing system

Did you know that if you don’t have a proper roofing system you end up having so many problems like you pay more in power bills because your ACs have to work extra hard in the day time as the heat seeping through the roof is too much? Also, in winters, your roof is allowing too much cold from outside and your heater has to work extra hard, which again is adding up to your power bills.

So a solar powered roofing system that forms a layer on the roof and the house so your home cannot be influenced by the outside weather is a very nice way to be eco-friendly.

Energy savers only instead of bulbs

The energy savers versus the bulbs are pretty easy to understand. The energy savers are as good as bulbs when it comes to the lighting but they cost so much less in terms of energy bills.

So if there is any bulb left in your house, you must change it as soon as possible. Also, the bulbs in lamps should also be replaced with the energy savers.

Mini Garden

The mini garden can be your direct contact with nature. Also, it is the best way to be eco-friendly. So you should think about growing a mini garden in your house.

Also, if growing a garden seems like a big deal to you then no problem, you can start with few plants and then move towards the mini garden.

Cover your swimming pool

Did you know that when your swimming pool is not covered, the water evaporates into the air? Can you imagine the amount of water lost because of your procrastination? So when the pool is not in use, you should cover it always. Also, it is a great way to keep your pool safe from dust particles and other mess.

Eco-friendly paint, even on the flat roofs

The wall paint is full of harmful and toxic chemicals. The size of your house will tell you how much you are harming the environment. So whenever you have to paint your house, make sure that you have bought the eco-friendly paint. The paint will be a bit expensive than the normal ones but it will be totally worth it.

Another thing that you can do is to paint your flat roof also. The thing with flat roofs is that they are less visible so people leave them unattended. However, you can use the same paint as on the exterior of the house on flat roofs to protect it.
