Want to make your home in Ibiza more eco-friendly? Keep reading as today we share some ideas to incorporate environmentally friendly products and green ideas into your home improvement projects. Best of all, your green projects will promote healthy living for your family and our wonderful island.
Solar Roof Panels
Ibiza is one of the most sunny place on earth, so why not take advantage of this natural source? Many utility companies in Spain offer rebates and credit to homeowners who install solar panels, especially when installing a new roof. In addition, excess electricity can also roll-back the solar power owner’s electrical meter — in essence, sending electricity back to the utility company — netting homeowners a credit. It’s best to install solar when installing a new roof.
Green Types of Flooring
Consider going green with your flooring! There are many good natural and Km0 choices on the island like hardwood, terracotta, natural stones or recycled glass tiles. If you are looking for renewable materials, cork is a good option, this material is manufactured from the bark of the cork oak tree, which grows back after being harvested. It provides insulation against heat and cold and is naturally repellent to bugs, mold, and mites.
You can easily take control of your heating or cooling needs by installing this smart home technology. You can set a thermostat to turn on when you wake up and turn off when you leave the house, which lets you fight global warming and save on your utility bills at the same time.
Tankless Water Heater
Installing a tankless water heater in your Ibiza home is a great way to save water, money and energy. This type of heater can be installed both inside or outside your property. They only heat water you need to use in just seconds and there’s no need to wait for the water to heat up while wasting more water in the process.
