Several banks in Malaysia have started to offer the option to go for green mortgages during this pandemic.

During the pandemic, smart technology has been an ongoing trend. Every day people find smarter ways to live comfortably and cost-saving. Some may think that you’ll need super-advanced technology in order to create a smart home, when in fact all you need to do is create an all age-friendly and energy-efficient home.
This can be done by simply installing smoke detectors, closed-circuit televisions(CCTV), wireless home systems and even wireless lighting systems.
Without realizing it, you’ve probably already installed these smart systems in your home.

Green energy sources
If you’re already thinking about switching to green technology, you might want to consider going green completely even with renewable energy.
Many products that use renewable energy are available in stores. All it takes is to find the right one for you.
In Malaysia, the most suitable energy source would be solar. Many homes have applied these systems. Tenaga Nasional has even encouraged the usage of solar panels as it can save you and your wallet from RM2,000 of your yearly electricity bill.
