A correct air conditioning system is essential when we want to achieve environmental sustainability and at the same time save energy in our homes.
Approximately 8% of CO2 emissions come from households. Therefore, making energy consumption in homes more efficient can help to reduce the impact of bad emissions into the atmosphere.
How can we make our heating system sustainable?
The heating of our homes can be sustainable if we contract a green energy contract. But what is the problem? Green energy is more sustainable but not as economical.
However, nowadays, many homes are going one step further and are looking for sustainability + savings. How? By using other alternative energy sources to electricity: wood.
We have already mentioned in previous posts that biomass is a renewable and sustainable energy source, you can read more about it in our post: “Firewood, a renewable energy source”. Burning firewood does not produce bad emissions nor is it necessary to pollute for its manufacture.
Therefore, the bestseller in recent times have been wood-burning stoves as a source of sustainable heating in our home.
Tips to be more sustainable
Without a doubt, being sustainable depends on many aspects. Above all, it depends on the energy source we use. However, there are other factors that can help us:
- Turn off the heating in rooms where there is no one.
- Ventilate rooms every day in the morning.
- In winter, the ideal temperature should be between 19º and 21º C.
- Insulate the house well, checking windows and doors.
