10 simple energy hacks for your home

Homify Logo By LEENA JHA HOMIFY of Homify | Slide 1 of 10: Heat or light, it enters our home through the windows. Keeping the house well-lit and cool at the same time is challenging. Constant use of light or AC consumes high electricity. To cut on the consumption change the windows from single pane to double pane windows. Double pane windows are better insulator than single pane. It only allows half as much of heat to pass through it thus keeping your house well-lit. During winter it will keep the house warmer and in summers cooler. So it’s double bonanza. If possible hang some plants near windows or make the curtains of climber to leave some green footprint near the windows. It will keep the house cooler.
