Home energy saver: Buy green appliance

Most home appliances are switched on 24hrs a day or used everyday and as such uses the most energy and cost the most money to run in the home.

The next time  you have to replace your fridge, freezer, washing machine or dishwater, shop around to find one with a A or A+ energy rating. As these appliances use less energy, they also cost less to run. When buying a new appliance, look for the Energy Saving Trust Recommended logo, which proves the appliance has met rigorous standards to qualify for the Energy saving Trust’s scheme.

Energy saving washing machines have to be AAA-rated to qualify, gaining an A in energy efficiency, spin efficiency and wash performance. Home appliance are used everyday, fridges, freezers are switched on 24 hours a day, so if you still have an old appliance, you’re sure to be wasting energy and money.

Marathon runners to be disqualified if they drop plastic

Runners at north Wales’ largest running event were warned they would be disqualified if they dropped litter during the race.

Organisers of Sunday’s Conwy Half Marathon said the measures had been introduced as plastic was becoming an “increasing problem”.

The Run Wales website said runners would also be “taken off the results if seen discarding their rubbish outside of a water stop or not with a marshal”.

The race is now in its eleventh year, and about 3,000 runners is expected to take part.

Organisers have not yet said if anybody was disqualified following the race, which started in front of the town’s castle.

This looks like the best solution to littering during marathon race. What do you think?

Going green to save money and the planet

Making your home green and eco-friendly requires just a few simple adjustments which can make a real difference to you saving money and the environment along the way.

  1. Save Energy – Making you home energy efficient as best as you can could save you up to £300 a year on energy bills, as well as two tonnes of CO2 emissions. Simple measures you can take includes: fitting energy saving light bulbs, draught-proofing doors and windows; fitting room thermostats, programmer and thermostatic radiator valves (TRVs); turning off lights when not needed and never leaving electronic and electrical gadgets on standby;  double glazed window; insulation of walls and loft; fitting energy efficient heating systems etc.
  2. Save Water – Water is an extremely valuable resource, but much of what we use are wasted. To save water, don’t leave the tap running when you brush your teeth, shave, wash your hands, wash plates, cups and pots. This can waste up to five litres of water per minute. Fix leaky taps and start taking more showers and fewer baths. A five minute shower uses about a third of the water of a bath, unless you have a power shower. install a water butt to collect rainwater with which to water your garden plants.
  3. Reduce – Reduce is the first in the mantra of ‘reduce, reuse, recycle’. that’s because it’s better to reduce the amount of waste we sent to landfills in the first place than to use energy to recycle it. When shopping, cooking and eating always buy, cook and eat what you need not want. There is a big difference between what we need and want, getting the balance right can go a long way in saving money and the environment.
  4. Reuse – Think before you throw something away. Could you, or someone else reuse it? By reusing items, you will save money and benefit the environment. For example, reuse plastic carrier bags for shopping, reuse drinking bottles, turn halves of plastic bottles into garden cloches to protect plants, reuse papers and envelopes (stick scrap paper over the old address). Always try repairing, restoring or re-upholstering furniture before buying new. If you can’t think of a way to reuse something, try local charity shop, recycle centres or freecycle websites.
  5. Recycle – It’s now very easy to recycle at home because nine out of 10 households have a kerbside recycling collection run by their local council, either weekly or fortnightly. You can check what materials your council recycles by visiting their website. Most council have recycling centres and you can also recycle items through local facebook group pages.

UK households spend on average of £106 a month on home energy according to DECC with energy making  up to 8.1% of household overall spending. It is also worth knowing that a recent report in 2015 found that UK energy consumption has fallen over the past 5 years by 14% but the average household spent more than ever before on energy bills.

Experts attributed the contrast between falling energy consumption and the rising cost of bills to energy supplier’s profit margins. so as a country, the UK is becoming more aware of the amount of energy that its using and making efforts to source it in a more cost effective and environmental friendly ways. But the average cost of a household energy bill continues to rise along with supplier profits.

The solution is to stop wasting money on energy bills that only increase the profit margins of energy suppliers and switch supplier on a regular basis to the cheapest provider as it makes no difference to the energy supplied. Although there are various ways of saving money on energy but switching  supplier is the simplest, easiest and no brainer.
