Reducing the consumption in your home

| Green Living | No Comments

Today, we are going to introduce you to some notions on reducing the electricity and fuel consumption in your home. There is a bigger emphasis on saving and protecting the environment these years, and if you care about our planet, you will want to opt for the ideas we present here.

We will try to make it as affordable and not time consuming for you as possible while making it possible for you to pay less in bills while helping the environment at the same time. Awesome isnt it? Well, we feel that it is awesome too.

So let’s get into it:

1 – Get a solar panel

A solar panel saves on consumption by using an already available and almost infinite resource, the sun. We all know that the sun is a much more powerful and reliable resource than our normal electricity source ( it can go off, the installation can burn, plus it costs money to use it. )

Solar powers cost nothing. Just pay once for the material ( they are really cheap these days ) and you are ready to go. No bills, no short circuits, and no damage to the environment either.

2 – Isolate your home

Isolating your home helps in not letting the heat get out of the house, enabling you to have your heating system functioning with less consumption, on a lower degree, both helping you save your money but to help the environment at the same time.

Isolation carpets are really cheap at square meter and they are really nice to walk on. Another option is to have it installed in your walls. They are called “isolation papers” and are as cheap as the isolation carpets we mentioned. Buy and see how good they are yourself.

3 – Switch to gas

If you still are using carburants like coal, wood, or anything else that releases a high amount of toxic chemicals, then we suggest that you opt for a gas installation as soon as possible. They use a natural gas that does not disturb the environment and release no other gasses ( they only consume oxygen in consequence ). They cost much less than wood and coal carburants and dont do the damage to the air and earth the fuel you are using right now do.

4  – Get economy light bulbs

Another way to really save on money and help the environment handle the damage we are doing better is to use light bulbs that use less electricity. How might you say?

According to


Energy saving light bulbs are actually compact fluorescent lamps – and are fundamentally different to traditional light bulbs that are incandescent lamps. The latter can be purchased with different wattage outputs – the typical light bulb used in the home is either 60 watts or 100 watts, which means that is how much power they use up in an hour. The low energy equivalents use only 9 or 11 watts each hour, so represent a substantial power saving, even though they give the same amount of light out.


The downside to energy saving light bulbs has been that they are much more expensive than incandescent bulbs – but this is offset by their much longer life. It has been estimated that, over the course of its life, an energy saving light bulb can save about £20 in the cost of the electricity used to run it.

How to Do a Major Clean Up For Autumn

| Home Improvement | No Comments

In order to look good in front of the guests, to not let infections strive in your house, and to generally feel comfortable and safe in your house, you must do regular cleanings in your house.

Cleaning the house works as exercise, a relaxing and repetitive hobby, and something to do in your free time. It also protects you and your family, as well as your pet from getting in contact with germs and other kinds of damaging things.

So let’s now write what you need to do in order to have your house clean.

1 – Cleaning Up the Small Things

We are going to start our clean up first by washing the dishes, removing the trash, putting all the dirty clothes in the wash machine, cleaning the tables, replacing the sheets, and either cleaning the carpets ourselves, or giving it to a carpet cleaner firm. But you can omit the carpet cleaning for now and do it in the later chapters.

Once you have finished doing the simple and mandatory clean-ups to put them aside and not to deal with them later, we can go on our next step, which is starting the harder and more important clean ups around our beloved house.

2 – Starting the major clean up

When we are talking about major clean up, we are referring to the fact that once we have finished the small thing ( the dishes, the clothes, dirty tables and sheets ) we need to go to some important things.

Start with the vacuuming. Go through all the rooms in the house and vacuum the carpets, the unders of the beds, get the dust and the dirt from undersides of tables, and generally get the dust off everything that you can see.

After you have finished cleaning all the rooms off initial amount of dust, now take the mop in your hand and mop up everywhere really well. I use lavanda mop solution ( smells really nice )

Now that you have vacuumed and mopped the rooms, take the dust cleaning cloth piece in your hand and clean all the furniture that you are able to clean with the piece of cloth. All the mini statues, tables, the TV, the computer screen and everything else that you can clean the dust off with the piece of cloth.

Once you have done all of these, you can go to our next step, which is:

3 – Ending the cleanup

Every start has its end, and now we are at the end of our clean up. The first thing you need to do is strip all the dirty sheet, and replace it with clean ones if you have not done so in the first step.

Now it is time to do the hard stuff. You need to get the grease and everything else from kitchen walls, clean the toilets and the bathroom with a powerful solution, do a good scraping of everything made from wood with the piece of cloth and the wood cleaning solution, and clean the windows. The only thing remaining now is to wash the carpets with the drapers and you are set!
