Home Friend: Reduce your water consumption with a fast breakdown service
At Less Saves The Planet, water conservation is a priority. This natural resource is one of the challenges of climate change and global warming. We consume an average of 150 litres of fresh water per day. Of these 150 litres of water 93% is used for personal hygiene (showering, washing teeth, laundry, toilets) and only 7% for drinking and food preparation.
Reducing water consumption is not that complicated. In addition to simple gestures such as turning off the water while brushing our teeth or using a mousseur for our washbasin, certain household appliances should be taken into account.
Home Friend advises you and helps you out. From your application, you can report a breakdown: you will be covered even if the legal guarantee of the appliance in question has expired. Home Friend takes care of the repair of your household appliances. If, for example, your washing machine cannot be repaired, the insurance service will reimburse you up to its new purchase value. To take advantage of this offer, the annual subscription for a new customer is €3.99/month for the first year and then €8.99/month.
This covers washing and cooling appliances such as a fridge or dishwasher and even a wine cellar for those lucky enough to have one. Cooking appliances are also included, such as a cooker hood or hob.
Home Friend, Going one step further: reducing energy consumption with solar panels.
If you want to reduce your energy consumption and your end-of-month bills even more, Home Friend also offers an installation service for residential solar panels.
Solar energy is a renewable energy that does not emit any CO2. Installing solar panels on your home becomes profitable very quickly as you are free from energy companies and their prices. Photovoltaic panels are 85-95% recyclable, depending on the model, and must be replaced every 10 years. That’s enough to keep you happy for several years.
Reduce your electricity bills by up to 50% and benefit from a fast and efficient installation with a labour and material guarantee.
