April 29, 2020
As environmental awareness gains more ground, the demand for eco-friendly technologies to complement personal habits has increased. Homes, specifically condominiums, are now at the forefront of this wave of eco-consciousness. More and more people who are buying or renting a condominium in Davao City are requiring these amenities.
Reducing carbon footprints starts with small things. Incandescent light bulbs are now a thing from the past. CFLs (compact fluorescent light bulbs) were the first wave of new technology that replaced old lighting technology. Today, LEDs are the norm. More light is given with less energy consumed. And that’s just the beginning. Someday, lighting technology will even produce better products.
Solar energy is also a consideration. Who doesn’t want free electricity? Imagine the sun powering your lights and small appliances. You can imagine the savings and the reduced carbon footprint. Some buildings already have this as a perk and buyers and renters gravitate towards that.
Appliances with inverters are already standard. In fact, they have surpassed we equaled the sales of their more power-hungry peers. Inverters are a god-send to those who are very particular about their energy consumption. In fact, a good tip is to avoid phantom loads. That means additional electricity consumption from appliances that are not in use all the time. You can save a lot of money by switching off unused appliances and unplugging gadgets that are already fully charged.

Reduce, reduce and reduce as much as you can. There are so many options now and all you have to do is look for them. The less garbage, the better it is for the environment.
