Energy efficiency at home

There are so many alternatives out there when it comes to heating your home on winter months. We can make our home cozy and warm things up by ensuring your house is properly insulated.  Another tip is to shut off areas which don't need heating.  Also, we can put the curtains down once the sun goes down to trap the heat inside. In order to save on electricity, learn more about using solar panels too. There are also solar lights that we can use outside our garden to maximize energy efficiency.
