The perks of an energy efficient home
Recently moved to your new home or planning buy a new one? In case you haven’t made the purchase or constructed one, take a look of what an energy efficient home might offer you. Though, now a days there are plenty of equipment and features that makes a new home energy efficient, we would focus on some key areas here.
An energy efficient home has perks that an ordinary home can’t offer you. Now government and other NGOs that work for environment protection are keen to promote steps in building construction that would benefit us in the long run. They insist on energy efficient new homes that would minimize the carbon foot print and make this earth a great place to live in. These home are built in nature friendly way and contribute in saving water, reduce pollution of air, water and land and reduce greenhouse effect to a large extent. Smart homes bring smarter options of life for people.
Save money and energy
An energy efficient home helps you save money and energy in the same go. By taking care of small steps you can save the utility bills, such as electricity and gas consumption. Using LED and lights that consume less energy you get to save remarkably, switching the lights and equipment that you don’t require when you are away would benefit in the long run. You consume less energy, pay less and your equipment stays working for a longer period of time. It becomes a win-win situation for you. An average house consumes 5000 kw a year of power, with proper monitoring you could conserve 50% of that and imagine how much every one of us would save if we stay alert. It would certainly make a great difference when calculated on a larger scale.
With an energy efficient new home you have equipment and devices that run on solar resources. If you have a solar paneled roof on the house, it generates enough energy during a normal sunny day that can light up the house and can also operate other appliances installed in your home. It can be used to heat water and you can cook with a cooktop. It would drastically reduce your electricity bills and help you invest that money in some other useful purpose. By choosing an energy efficient home, you not only do a favour for yourself but also for the environment at large. Biogas plants are also a good option if you have a dairy farm where there is lot of animal waste generated, it can be used to generate energy and light up the house.
A clean and fresh air to breathe in
Using such advanced equipment would benefit you now and in the future as well. When you use energy resources that generate no carbon dioxide, you keep the air around you clean and free of possible carbon dioxide. You contribute in a small scale for keeping the air fresh and clean around you. Prevent diseases that germinate from polluted air and create an healthy environment for you and your family.
Balancing the eco-system
With such advanced eco-friendly features you make the world a better place to live. Imagine installing a windmill that consumes no energy, harms no one and generates energy to be consumed by you for powering devices or lighting your house. No chemicals or toxic generation or involved to produce energy. Safe water, water and clean soil for your children to play and cultivate healthy and organic farm essentials; isn’t it a great step on your part and doing a bit to protect our world from pollution.BuildMyGhar..
