How to Build an Eco-Friendly House


Having an eco-friendly home is becoming increasingly popular in the UK, and as the environment continues to change for the worse, we have to be prepared for these changes. Start from the heart of the source by making your home an economically happy place to be – from the energy consumption you use to the amount of water we use on a daily basis.

With that in mind, here are some top tips to make your home more eco-friendly and green from this foundation solutions company.

Keep on top of your home insulation

Insulating the home is going to cut down your bills significantly over time as it will keep your home colder in the warmer months and will keep the home much warmer in the colder months. Not only are you saving on your heating bills each year but you’re also being wise with using your heating and thereby helping the environment.

Consider adding solar panels to your roof

A popular addition to a lot of homes that many homes are considering are solar panels. In adding solar panels, you’re reducing the reliance you have on using external power. Again, you’re reducing your annual bills when adding renewable energy to your own home, but it also brings a lot of benefits to the environment. 

The only downside to having solar panels would be if you’re in a place that doesn’t receive a lot of sunlight each year – then you won’t reap the benefits of saving money or energy.

Reclaim and reuse old materials

You may be tempted to ditch old materials in favour of new ones, like taking that preloved table to the tip. But you could find a lot more benefit in taking these pieces of furniture apart and using them for something else. Wood or stone can be used for a variety of new purposes if you’re into upcycling, which can save you money and stop you from wasting resources.
