CFL lighting, Low-E windows, Radiant Barriers. Just a few short years ago, these terms didn’t exist in the realm of home building. But these days, they’re integral components in an eco-friendly home building strategy.
With rising fuel costs and an increase in air pollutants, it is becoming more and more important to build homes that are energy efficient and environmentally sound. Eco-friendly home building is one of the most quickly growing sectors of the construction industry, and with so many benefits, it’s hard not to understand why.
What’s Different about an Eco-Friendly Home?
An eco-friendly house helps to conserve our planet’s natural resources. It uses less energy, conserves water and provides an interior living environment that is healthier and more comfortable than a house that’s built with traditional methods and products.
Eco-friendly houses feature innovative framing techniques and the latest advancements in insulation. They also feature ENERGY STAR appliances, low-VOC emission paints and carpeting and much more. All this adds up to a more comfortable living environment with less impact on the environment and less wasting of energy.
Conserving Water with an Eco-Friendly Home
An eco-friendly home helps conserve water with faucets and shower heads that are high-performance, water-saving fixtures.
How Much Can an Eco-Friendly Home Save Me?
The amount an eco-friendly home can save you varies by region, as climates can be drastically different. However, no matter where you live, the energy-efficiency of an eco-friendly home can add up to some very substantial energy – and financial – savings.
