Print Friendly

You recycle unwanted food, switch off your lights when you’re not in the room and have installed insulation, but what else can you do to make your home a greener place? With a little bit of smart shopping, you’ll be able to find home appliances designed to help you cut your emissions and lower your energy use. 

Energy saving light bulbs are just the start, delve into the great range of green home appliances available and you could soon start reducing your energy costs.

Making a greener home

As awareness of environmental responsibility grows, there are an ever-increasing number of manufacturers who are attempting to make sure their products fit the bill. However, some companies are doing a better job of greening their appliances than others. Read The Ecologist’s guide to going green and pick up some top tips for making sure your next big purchase is as environmentally friendly as it claims to be.

For some excellent, impartial advice on buying your next home appliance, be sure to head along to Top10 Energy Efficiency Guide. This useful website is a global initiative that has been created independently to offer advice on the best appliances for saving energy. Use it to find at-a-glance, best-in-class listings for a huge range of energy-using products. Whether you’re hoping to compare energy use for fridges, washing machines, TVs or simply small household appliances, this is a great place to start.

Ethical Consumer is another site that is dedicated to helping you make the right choice when it comes to green appliances and on sites like Green Choices, you’ll find some useful guides to choosing wisely as well as some great information about making your home a greener place overall. Improving the energy efficiency of your home can be surprisingly easy, as long as you know the right places to look.

Big, green changes

If you’d like to make some substantial changes to how green your home is, you might want to check out the work being done by the Energy Savings Trust. The Green Deal is a financing mechanism that could help you make your home more energy efficient by financing the changes through the future savings on your energy bills. There are many different, government-appointed providers who can help you find the right products and services for transforming your home into a more energy efficient place. You’ll also find some great advice for energy grants and help with heating costs from the website.

Once you’ve bought your energy saving appliances, you’ll also want to know what you can do to make the most of them. Ensure you’re helping your appliances reach their full eco potential with some useful advice on utilising green appliances from The Green Home. It’s also well worth thinking about the items you’re replacing. Do your bit for the environment by making sure you recycle your electronics and appliances responsible, with a little help from the Glotech guide to green disposal.
