Build Your Green Home

You can do these things for your Green home

   1. Replace the sodium bulbs and tube lights with  CFLs. This can save Rs 200-400 off your monthly power bill.
   2. Turn down the temperature on your geyser so that the water that comes out doesn't need to be mixed with cold water. This is, of course, if you can't have a cold water bath.
   3. Use a cup at the bathroom washbasin to rinse your mouth. So that you don't have to keep the water running.
   4. If you are a gardener, Water your plants in the evening as this will reduce evaporation loss.
  5. Don't set your washing machine to hot water mode. Hot water mode really not going to make your clothes any cleaner... unless you operate a JCB Machine for a living.

What more that you can do:

  •    Try to utilize the Solar energy in your house, invest in a solar water heater, solar inverter and other solar energy products.
  • Make Recycle as a habit, Never ask a vegetable vendor to give more plastic bags.  Reduce the use of plastic carry bags.
  •    Change the next 5 most used lights with Cf Ls.
  •    Replace the power consuming traditional CRT monitors with LCD monitors.
  • Make your home Rain harvesting one, save rain water with Rain management system.
