An eco house is an environmentally low-impact home designed and built using materials and technology that reduces its carbon footprint and lowers its energy needs.
COMPARED TO TRADITIONAL HOMES THEY HAVE 8 ADVANTAGES:
- Low maintenance and operational costs
- Energy efficiency
- Enhances indoor environment quality
- Water efficiency
- Better health
- Material efficiency
- Better environment
- Reduces strain on local resources
THEY REDUCE THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT:
An eco home produces fewer carbon emissions, keeps trash out of landfills and lessens the impact of new construction on the world’s finite resources.
THEY SAVE TIME :
Using the right materials in the right place can save construction time. Recycled materials are more likely to be available nearby. Furthermore, eco friendly homes require less maintenance as they are constructed to last long time.
THEY SAVE MONEY:
It’s not cheap to build a sustainable home but the cost of day-to-day living is reduced. An eco-home can reduce the monthly bills by up to 20-30%.
Less money will be spent for repairing and touching up and whenever a home owner decides to sell the property, this would increase his initial investment.
THEY PROVIDE A HEALTHIER LIVING ENVIRONMENT
Many components can make a home healthier to live in, from house design to building materials and the paint you choose.
