As technology improves by the day, integrating with different aspects of our lives and allowing us to get things done more easily and efficiently, more people are beginning to invest in tech in order to help them in their homes, modernizing their properties and future-proofing them going forward. These upgrades and improvements not only are working to make homes run better from an efficiency perspective, but they also help in a range of different ways with energy — helping homeowners to become more eco-friendly in the process.
Want to modernize your home, integrate smart tech and become greener in the process? Check out these smart and eco-friendly solutions for your home.
Looking for ways to modernize your home, and become more green and eco-friendlier in the process? For some inspiration, take a look at this quick list of smart and eco-friendly solutions for your home.
With a process that’s literally as easy as screwing in a light bulb, the benefits of these modern bulb replacements are two-fold, from both an interior design perspective, and an energy-conscious/eco-friendly one, too:
- Interior design benefit – With an almost limitless number of colors, smart lighting can be used to shift up the tone and feel of a room in a pinch. Not only is this brilliant for parties or different social events, but it also a great, cheap hack if you don’t want to get the paint out.
- Energy-conscious/eco-friendly benefit – Not only are smart LED bulbs more energy-efficient than the traditional filament bulb, but the fact that they can be turned on and off remotely means that you’ll never forget to turn them off again. They can even be set on automatic timers by using an accompanying smartphone app, helping you to wake up in the morning or settle down at night, and again saving you money/energy in the process.
If smart lighting isn’t enough, you might also want to consider kitting your home out even further, and investing even more smart equipment. A smart heating kit, for example, will allow you to again set your heating to come on and off automatically, not only leaving you to get on with what’s important in the day but also saving energy in the process. These quality of life improvements are so satisfying and simple to employ throughout the home that many who have them would struggle to back without.
Want to achieve the same sort of interior style as some of the modern, sleek apartment buildings of the future that you see throughout city centers? Take a look at some of the different ongoing projects from property investment company RWinvest. The designs in these properties not only maximize floor space and do the most with what they have, but they again integrate smart tech in order to be more eco-friendly while also giving the tenant living there more autonomy over their everyday life.
As a side note, on the topic of energy consciousness and being eco-friendly these modern builds are also constructed with modern materials and building techniques in mind, helping them to better retain energy and overall be better for the environment, even interacting with surrounding buildings to use and conserve energy when necessary. These new concept buildings are often referred to as smart buildings.
