How to make your home more eco-friendly

  • by JW

… through efficiencies and potential cost savings


The incentive to ‘go green’ has become more urgent – not only because of the climate change figures but, with the cost of living crisis biting, it’s clear that saving energy can save us money.

Here’s a message from Olivia Miller, a digital relations consultant, who wants to share an online piece covering just these points:

It’s a good starting point to help homeowners make sustainable choices by considering eco-tech and green energy. So I wanted to share this highly informative piece that helps raise awareness on making homes more environmentally friendly. 

I’ve found similar information like this on your new pages, and I thought this could be a great topic to cover on your site and something your readers could find informative.

It offers information about sustainable tech such as:

  1. How to take advantage of green mortgages for lower interest rates
  2. Government support for homeowners, including the Green Deal loan and the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive
  3. Smart technology options and their associated costs, like smart meters, lighting, and heating
  4. Green energy sources, and how to install them or find an energy provider 

It also offers a handful of figures such as:

  1. Smart Energy International estimates that a smart home can save 30-40% of energy.
  2. Since the government has ambitious aims to cut emissions by 78% by 2035, they offer financial aid to homeowners wanting to make green changes in their homes.
  3. In the last decade, smart technology has become increasingly more affordable, with smart plugs starting at under 10GBP.

Here’s a link to the piece –

And here’s how it opens:

Thanks to smart home technology and renewable energy options, there are more opportunities than ever to make your home more eco-friendly. Technology also allows you to track these efficiencies and potential cost savings too – something that’s particularly encouraging when trying to embrace a greener lifestyle.

In this guide, we’ll look at what technologies and energy sources are available, affordable and accessible to UK households.
