Pointers for Making Your Granny Flats Go Green

Granny Flats Go Green

If you have a personal advocacy to make the world a better place, you are not alone. A paradigm shift regarding a healthier and more sustainable world has inspired many people to join the cause. And if you are really serious about it, you need to start at home.

The best way to do that is by making your home greener. A greener home is good for you, your family, and the environment. Many think that it is challenging, but a few simple tricks can do the trick.

Here are some of the things you can do if you live in a granny flat in Sydney.

Compost

Just throwing your garbage can add a great amount of waste to landfills. What you should do is cut down such waste by turning some of your biodegradable wastes into compost. For example, food refuses, fruits and vegetable peelings can be used as components for your compost. Just make sure your compost items can easily decay.

Optimise your HVAC system

You may need to have an HVAC system to keep your room comfortable. But remember that some systems release harmful chemicals. On top of that, continuous usage of air conditioners can mean increased energy bills. Avoid such problems by optimising your HVAC system. Schedule the usage or if it is okay for you, just use it in fan mode.

Consume some greens

Some plants can make your home interior fresher and comfortable by filtering excess carbon dioxide. Just make sure your plants do not easily attract insects. If you have more time to maintain plants, why not start a small vegetable garden?

A green granny flat is not only comfortable; it is likewise attractive (especially with plants around). Encourage your family and friends to do the same for a much better world.
