Various ways in which one can make the building environmentally friendly.

Energy star appliance

Installing such appliances will in turn help in saving money as well as energy in the form of electricity. Energy is to be utilized in a non-wastage manner. A Big building uses more energy and hence reduces energy consumption. Designers use details that decrease the air leakage through the building envelope (conditioned and unconditioned space)

Use of green material efficiently

Construction with the help of “green” materials like bamboo, straw, recycled stone and metals (copper) & other non-toxic, reusable and recyclable building material is a good choice. Replace traditional concrete mixes with slag, sheep wool, cellulose and thermal cork

Work on water reuse

Here water that is derived from domestic chores like the sink, shower, bath, washing machine and dishwasher is easy to treat as it contains fewer pathogens. Installing a water-saving device in your home can save you money, help protect the environment, and help you live a more sustainable life.

Installing a water-saving device in your home can save you money, help protect the environment, and help you live a more sustainable life. Many of the newest devices can even save you up to a gallon of water each day. But which ones are the most effective and which are the best for your home? To know that, ask any experts.

Ensure optimal use of water

Building installed with dual plumbing that recycles water in toilet flushing and using water for washing cars is a good example of an environment-friendly way.  Also, contact the Best General Contractor in Los Angeles for ultra-low flush toilets & low shower heads. These are a great way of water conservation in buildings.

Passive solar building design

This technique is often used in low energy homes. During summer huge windows extract the daylight from the sun as a source of light thereby reducing the usage of electronic appliances during the days.

Solar water heater

Energy received from the sun is utilized in heating water for daily household chores.

Use of renewable energy

Using solar power, wind power, hydropower and biomass will reduce the environmental impact while providing savings on “electricity” charges.

Reducing toxic material

A building should be made with nontoxic and non-allergic materials that are not harmful to the owner as well as the environment. A building must have the provision of a rainwater harvesting system that can be utilized later for household chores. Using locally available products for construction increases local employment and contributes in a sustainable environment.
