How can we improve the energy efficiency of our home?

Electricity and natural gas services are essential in any home and therefore represent a fixed expense at the end of the month which, in some cases, rises to orbiting amounts. Therefore, it is not surprising that more and more people are looking for alternatives that allow them to save energy in order to reduce the final amounts on their household energy bills. One of the most efficient solutions to achieve this is to improve the energy efficiency of the home.

In this article you will find some tips on how to achieve an energy efficient home without spending a lot of money in the process - stay tuned!

Check installations and contracted energy tariffs.

The first step to saving energy in a home is to check the optimal state of the electricity and natural gas installations. In this way, we can ensure that the installation is working correctly and that there are no faults that could cause it to use more energy than necessary.

The second step is to check that you have the right tariff for your household consumption. To find out which electricity or natural gas tariff to contract, the best thing to do is to use a comparator natural gas and electricity offers comparator. The natural gas and electricity comparator will show you a list of the cheapest tariffs based on your consumption needs, among which you will find gas and electricity tariffs from companies such as Endesa or offers with prices regulated by the government. The Endesa company is popular among consumers for offering very cheap gas and electricity tariffs that are adapted to customers' schedules. In fact, Endesa's gas tariffs have the lowest prices on the market, even lower than regulated offers.

Insulate your home

Energy efficiency is closely linked to the thermal insulation of dwellings, as it helps to reduce energy consumption. But how does thermal insulation work? In this Idealista article you will find everything you need to know, although the main idea is as follows:

  • Thermally insulating a home means "sealing" it with different materials that maintain an optimum temperature inside the home without the need to make excessive use of air conditioning systems. A good thermal insulation system avoids temperature leaks from the inside to the outside, thus improving the comfort of the home.

Install awnings and pergolas in your home

In general, these exterior elements regulate the temperature and sun exposure of the house and are useful not only in summer, but also in winter. In addition to this, pergolas and awnings in a house provide other advantages in the field of energy efficiency, for example:

  • They block solar radiation in summer and let it through in winter.
  • They reduce reflected radiation.
  • They maintain the illumination and heat input while preventing glare in winter which can be annoying as the sun is lower.
  • They reduce air infiltration into the home.

By applying all the techniques in this article, you will achieve greater energy efficiency in your home, which will not only have energy efficiency benefits but also economic benefits: you will reduce your energy bills at the end of the month and increase the value of your home for future sales.
