Go Off Grid for Environmental Reasons

If you wish to reduce your carbon footprint, go green by dropping off the grid. This is the eco-friendly way many householders are reducing their power bills living simpler lives , reducing their dependence on traditional power suppliers. And if they produce more power this way than their household needs, they are able to feed it back into the power grid. Junk Removal York PA.

Going green involves using nature to help you generate power by means of harnessing the power of the sun (if there are enough hours of sunlight) or the wind to supplement your power supply. Dropping off the grid needs planning for it to be successfully implemented.  

Part of this may involve replacing old appliances with modern, more energy efficient ones. Disposing of old appliances in a responsible manner can present a challenge, but  we will discuss this later. 

At Little Green Junk York we encourage any initiative that is designed to save the environment. So anything that is eco-friendly fits into our philosophy that relates to the responsible disposal of waste. Going green is the perfect opportunity for homeowners to take stock of what else is cluttering up their houses and to get rid of any redundant trash item once and for all.

Back to Going Green 

So, when you are ready to go off the grid, we have given you the solution to clearing up your home in advance of the big change. The four big energy users in the house are your water heater, aircon or heating system, stove, oven, and lights. Let’s have a look at what you should do about them. 

Using Gas

The geyser or water heater consumes a vast amount of energy in order to keep you constantly supplied with hot water. When you turn the hot tap on, the geyser fills up with cold water which immediately starts heating up. 

If you rely on solar power only to replace electricity for the geyser, you’ll be at the mercy of the sun’s appearance. If it’s a cold, miserable spell of weather, then your water will not get hot enough, so you need to consider other options. 

A good option is a gas device which when placed near to a tap or shower head, gives instant hot water only when needed. While considering gas, it is also a good way to heat up the house instead of electricity. It’s far cheaper and can be done by piping a gas heating system through the house.  

The same applies to your stove and oven, which although are not huge electricity users, unless you do loads of cooking, can also be replaced by a gas stove. We offer an appliance removal service to assist you with disposing of the old appliances you may replace. We dispose of these in a responsible manner, recycling where we can and only using the landfill as a last resort.  

Lastly, by converting the lights in your house to LED bulbs you will save on electricity as these are energy efficient, producing more light per watt than incandescent bulbs. Also, LED bulbs last far longer than the traditional light bulbs, saving you money on replacements.
