How to make our home greener?

eco cleaning at home
For years our life has been guided by the idea of ​​'ecological home, this is my home'. We don't use chemicals, we segregate waste and we care for the environment every day. The topic of environmental protection and being eco is close to our heart, that's why on the blog five years ago we started the action entitled "I am a conscious consumer." Referring to this initiative, we want to remind you that each of us through their daily choices can have a real impact on the environment in which we live, e.g. by saving energy. An excuse could be WWF action titled "Earth Hour." For the past decade, the last Saturday in March has been trying to persuade people and large corporations to turn off lights and electrical appliances in homes and offices.

How to be even more eco?

Let's think how much good could be done by saving energy not only through a symbolic hour, but every day? Each of us can join in the efforts to save energy and water. There are many ways to do this. You can look for inspiration on our blog - for example, I will remind you about entries about aerator applications to save water, handkerchiefs or using rechargeable batteries instead of ordinary batteries. In addition, one of the ideas for being eco is choosing the right home appliances / electronics. As I wrote earlier, it is worth saving energy not only "on holidays". Thanks to modern home appliances / electronics, it can permanently enter our activities. So it's worth choosing the right equipment - both in terms of ecology and the purely economic aspect.
When we lived together with Dominika in our own four corners and it was up to us what type of equipment we would use every day, before buying, we were always guided by the energy class of the equipment and the idea that our home is an ecological home. Regardless of whether you buy a washing machine, dishwasher or TV, remember that when you decide to buy equipment should fall into the energy class between categories A + and A +++. A household appliance that uses both a lot of water and energy is a dishwasher and washing machine. However, I would like to focus on the last device mentioned - what to do to save on washing?

The best 2017 washing machine

The skilful use of devices and the introduction of principles of economic use are facilitated by more and more modern solutions contained in home appliances. A large selection of this type of models can be found on the website MediaMarkt. In our opinion, the most interesting solution is the series of Candy washing machines with Mix Power System technology, i.e. the system responsible for introducing detergent under pressure directly into the fabric drum. As a result, the washing machine will not only provide excellent washing results, but also have an impact on saving energy and water, which is what we care about most. The described technology fits perfectly with the idea of ​​eco-use.

In this washing machine you will also find steam technology for refreshing clothes that can handle fabrics such as cotton, synthetic material, colorful, delicate fabrics. The use of this mode causes that the fabrics are thoroughly refreshed and regenerated. Easy ironing is also available in the model. Think how much time you can save in this way, instead of spending long hours ironing, you can spend time relaxing. When it comes to relaxation, Silent Inverter technology is conducive to it. Thanks to this patent, the washing machine is extremely quiet (51 dBa).

What affects the energy class of the washing machine?

Returning, however, to the aspects that interest us the most, that is, what affects the energy class of the washing machine described. The washing machine has so-called KG DETECTOR - technology based on sensors that automatically select the best washing parameters. The machine adjusts the amount of water, drum rotation rhythm and spin speed to the selected type of fabric and calculates the duration of the washing cycle. It also detects the presence of foam and increases the amount of water when rinsing if necessary. All this affects the optimal consumption of both water and energy, hence the highest rating of the energy class A +++ - 30%.
Finally a real gadget. The washing machine can connect to our ... smartphone. Device
has been equipped with NFC technology, thanks to which we have the opportunity to do better
communicate with our washing machine and also make better use of the potential
technology in which it was equipped. Thanks
using the washing machine via smartphone, you can gain access to intelligent
washing machine monitoring, statistics, personalized programs and controls
voice. In this
the way we can keep track of laundry statistics, set programs as desired
individual, so that they are even more ECO.
Remember that you can save time and order your eco washing machine without leaving your home through the site mediamarkt.pland you can collect it at one of the stationary stores. Additionally, you can always leave your used equipment at MediaMarkt, compatible with the range offered, even if you have not purchased a new one. If you still have doubts about which product to choose, remember to always consult a specialist in stationary stores before buying to be completely satisfied with your purchase.

    I just bought a Candy washing machine with a new induction motor.
    Together with my wife, we have long been concerned about saving energy and protecting the environment.
    The new engine means lower power consumption, quiet operation and longer life.
    It is these advantages that encouraged us to buy a new washing machine.

    Awareness first and foremost. Many people are unaware of the seriousness of the situation, they leave the lights on, do not disconnect the tools from contact. I use my tenants myself to make sure they save energy.

      We also care about it. It is true that in the previous apartment we had LEDs (we actually noticed lower electricity bills), and here we have energy-saving ones. We make sure that you don't leave the lights or devices turned on. We already have it in our blood 🙂

    Drinking water filter mounted on the water intake in the kitchen - thanks to this you can opt out of buying bottled mineral water - we do not waste the same environment and we have easy access to healthier water.

      We have been using pitchers to filter water for years. Once we had to buy water in a bottle for a week, because our jug ​​broke. You can't imagine how bothersome it was. Besides, how many bottles we used. I was in shock!

    Important topic. My husband and I also pay attention to the energy efficiency of the equipment. You need to care for the environment in which we live☺

    I live in a rented apartment, but I plan to change my own. Then I will pay attention to, for example, buying a good, eco washing machine. :-)

      We also rent and unfortunately we have no influence on it. For sure we will pay attention to this, and for now we do other things that have an impact on the environment, e.g. we eliminated cleaning chemicals - only ecological means are used. In addition, I pay close attention not to waste food.

    People are increasingly aware of being eco. It is worth reminding them from time to time 🙂

      This is true, but unfortunately not everyone. If so everyone turned off the light for an hour yesterday would be great. Unfortunately, I saw that many people lost it 🙁

    Maybe I'm not that eco, but I pay attention to the energy-saving devices, I try to take care of the environment and teach my children the same.

      Cool! It is important to teach children ecology from an early age 🙂

    I don't call myself eco, but in practice I pay attention to the points you mentioned. I do it instinctively, out of concern for the environment, but I also have a habit that if something is healthier, more economical and practical it is included in the price. Quite naturally without putting it into theories.

    I am currently at the stage of changing the washing machine ... 😉
