It sounds hard, but it’s not. There are really already projects, based on clean energy, that are simple, more flexible and adaptable for environments with little available space. In addition, many habits of our daily lives can also help to better enjoy sunlight and decrease electricity consumption, making your home more sustainable.
According to estadão’s website, one of the possibilities would be the installation of solar panels in the residences. The process is easy, does not require major renovations and the resident can choose between photovoltaic energy, which generates electricity for all environments, or only thermosolar, which serves to heat the water. It is an investment that offers good returns, including the valuation of the property.
Just like using solar windows, it can also be very profitable. So-called “ceiling windows” or “skylights” help to make better use of natural light and do not need major works to be placed, so they are considered more sustainable. Another tip is the use of the LED lamp, which is sustainable in that it saves resources. Replacing all halogen or fluorescent lamps in your home with this type of lighting helps reduce up to 86% of the energy consumed. Besides, they last longer.
Finally, investing in changing habits already helps to avoid waste and make the most of natural renewable resources. Opening windows whenever possible, using furniture and walls with lighter colors and opting for electronic devices that save energy, in addition to removing them from the socket whenever possible, are great attitudes that contribute to a more sustainable world.
