Find out more about making more sustainable and green choices each day below.

Are Combi Boilers Eco-Friendly?

*Collaborative Post

Nobody likes to think about replacing their boiler. They can be expensive items to buy, which is why most people see the wisdom of having the one they already own serviced regularly. But, unfortunately, statistically speaking you are likely to need to buy a new boiler at least 3 times in your lifetime. When you do you will want to purchase one that is affordable, not expensive to run and eco-friendly.

The benefits of a combi boiler are well known. They are compact and provide almost instant hot water. But the question is are they eco-friendly too?

How You Can Do Your Bit For The Environment Without It Breaking The Bank!

There’s no denying that there are now many more eco products on the market and there’s also no denying that we are being told that these are one of the main ways to help the environment but is this truly the case? The answer from me here is mixed. Yes, it is great that we now have alternative options and if you’ve followed me for a while you will know I love a good, useful eco swap. These can most certainly also save you money in the long run but I also fully understand that some cannot invest in them all right away. If you can afford some or build on them over time then that’s great and if you’d like some tips on making this affordable I have previously written about that here. However, I am very aware that there are also many products out there that we don’t all need and I think these are the ones that have almost given being eco a bit of a bad rep in terms of only being possible if you are privileged. I don’t like this view of it because I believe that helping our environment should be and is possible for everybody it’s just that these perhaps aren’t being spoken about as much as the products are being pushed? So here are my ways in which you can do your bit for the environment without breaking the bank…

How A No Buy Year Will Help The Environment

I hadn’t heard of a no buy year until the start of last year when I saw some people announce they were doing it on Instagram, and since having watched their progress plus seen their savings, it’s made me begin to look into this topic a little further. As an eco-conscious person, I loved the idea of people saying no to all of the ‘stuff’ and making do with what they already owned and then I realised that this is exactly what our planet needs – more people choosing to do a no buy year. You see, once you eliminate the extra waste, the non-essential consumerism, the disposables, the need for wanting more, you are helping our environment as well as your own pocket and here’s how…
