The Best Environmentally Friendly Systems For Your Home


More and more homeowners around the world are now incorporating environmentally friendly technology into their properties. When you consider how badly the toxic emissions of heavy industry have polluted our earth it's a wonder we all haven't all embraced the many eco-friendly inventions that most homes can easily install.

A common misconception of these technologies is that their installation is an expensive and complicated process when actually these energy saving machines are anything but difficult to include.

Here is a guide to just a few of the most popular systems that are helping 21st century homes lessen their impact on the environment while providing us with a safer world to live in.  

Energy Efficient Heaters

One of the most straightforward changes to any modern home is the installation of electric radiator systems that replace the old fashioned, energy guzzling night storage heaters that so many homes have relied on for years.

A modern electric radiator system has benefits far beyond anything storage systems offer.
Not only do they require just a third of the energy storage heaters use, they boast stylish designs they come equipped with ground-breaking technology to ensure all energy use is kept to a minimum.

Unlike the wasteful wet systems of night storage heaters, modern radiators often come with in-built ceramic tablets that allows the system to produce heat quickly and store some for gradual release later. The ability to release heat slowly means electric radiators have all the benefits of night storage heaters without causing pollution.

Another popular kind of modern radiator system is the “multi-fin” design that incorporates small in-built fins that allow heat to be distributed evenly around entire rooms in a manner similar to how a chimney pot allows heat to be released. This not only reduces the amount of energy used in heating homes but also lessens the electricity costs acquired by a household. 

Another amazing benefit that electric radiators have over old storage heaters is that they do not cause the release of carbon that night heaters have been known to generate over long periods of usage. Carbon release can be hazardous to a person's health, especially to asthma sufferers, and has long been an overlooked flaw of storage heater design. In fact, much of the general public is completely unaware of this danger.

Solar Panels

One of the most popular eco-friendly ways to generate green electricity is to use solar panels. This technology works through the inclusion of photovoltaic cells made from semi-conducting materials that are designed to lie on roof's where they absorb sunlight. This sunlight is then turned into electricity that is used throughout the home, whether for lighting purposes or powering household appliances.

Solar panels work especially well on bright days when more sunlight is available, although the sun doesn't need to be visible in order for solar panels to work, as they function perfectly well on cloudier days too.

Not only do solar panels not release harmful carbon pollution into the atmosphere, they allow users to reduce their energy bills because sunlight is (of course) absolutely free. It's believed that the average solar panel system has the ability to save at least at least a tonne of carbon dioxide per year.

Ground Source Heat Pumps

Ground source heat pumps are a technology not nearly as complex to install as many homeowners believe. They are the perfect eco-friendly system as they need little electricity to run, and the natural heat extraction they generate is completely renewable.

Ground source heat pumps work via pipes buried in the garden that are able to infuse heat from the earth which is then absorbed into a mixture of water and antifreeze before being pulled through a heat exchanger into the pump.

The result of this is that a home is heated with little energy use as the pumps have removed any reliance on natural gas and oil, effectively reducing annual emissions by up to 1.8 tonnes.

Air Source Heat Pumps

Ground source heat pumps should not be confused with air heat pumps which have a different means of producing energy. These systems instead adsorb heat from outside air and are able to work in temperatures as low as -15° C.

All air collected is spread around a home for warmth through the use of household appliances such as radiators, underfloor heating systems and warm air convectors. This may sound like a complex system but an air source heat pump actually works in a relatively simplistic way that is almost a reverse of the process a refrigerator requires to activate cold temperatures.

If you haven't installed energy saving technology to your property yet, be sure to research the best systems available to your home. The benefits will be massive.
