How to save energy in everyday life? The energy consumption in the house it is intended above all as the transmission of heat from the house to the environment, that is, a dispersion of heat. Then there are other consumptions to be considered related to the operation of various systems and appliances.
Household appliances are of great importance for the purposes of energy saving in everyday life and it is good that they are chosen efficient appliances (even if they cost something more) because they will also save us on other items, such as detergents. In this regard, it should be borne in mind that efficient washing machines and dishwashers they work at their maximum efficiency using even half of the detergent indicated on the package (we dare you to contradict us).
As for the heat loss of the building, it is known that the excessive sealing of the structures pursued to contain consumption negatively affects the quality of the indoor air. If extreme sealing techniques are used to have a class A home, and perhaps synthetic insulation materials produced with harmful emissions, the result will be unhealthy homes.
The building, like a living organism, must be able to breathe naturally. However it should be borne in mind that let the building breathe it does not mean not pursuing the most suitable solutions to avoid heat loss which results in waste.
The air exchange necessary to have a healthy and comfortable home environment can be achieved (as well as by optimizing daily behaviors) using insulating materials with high thermal inertia but 'naturally breathable'. A few examples? Natural blond cork, wool, vegetable fibers, all sufficiently performing but more comfortable than synthetic materials.
