Many people dream of saving the world, but few realise that anyone can have a part in literally saving the entire planet simply by having double-glazing in their houses! How is this possible?
Well, fossil fuel consumption increases every year, and even the most optimistic estimate says that our oil will be completely diminished within 45 years, and that our gas will quickly follow at 72 years. Conservation of energy is one of the best solutions.
But most of us probably won’t still be alive then, so why does it involve us? To start with, we should care about the billions of people who will have to deal with these problems. We need to save resources for future generations, as it would be selfish for us to greedily use up all of the Earth’s resources.
Burning less fossil fuels will also mean less pollution in the atmosphere. It is unquestionable that the fuels that we use are destroying the earth, so we need to stop being so dependant on them while we still can, by conserving as much energy as possible.
As well as helping to save the world for your descendants, it could save you more than £1000 per year in electricity and heating bills! So how can you conserve electricity in your home? To start off with, you can save power by not leaving electrical items on standby, such as your TVs or Computers. You should also switch the lights off in rooms that you are not using.
A great way to conserve heat is double-glazing, which prevents heat from escaping through the windows. Hot air is less dense than cold air, so it escapes through the window when the air is colder outside. Heating systems have a thermostat, which measures the temperature in the air, making the heater hotter or colder depending on the target temperature. When you haven’t got double-glazing, the heating system uses up more and more money in a vain attempt to bring the room to the right heat level, but most of its efforts just get sucked straight out of the window.
Double-glazing prevents unwanted heat loss, and your bills will be greatly reduced thanks to the heat conservation.
