Despite outdated preconceptions, green homes built using modern materials with modern methods are as good or better than their conventional counterparts. In fact, their reduced costs are one of the main reasons that green building is popular.
Here are the benefits of choosing green home design:
- Green materials provide a number of benefits, ranging from long-lasting usefulness to reduced cost and reduced consumption of scarce resources. In fact, some green materials emit less pollutants, making for a healthier living space.
- Efficient fixtures and appliances consume less resources while still providing optimal function. For homeowners, this is important because less consumption means a reduced bill each month.
- Based on similar logic, automated amenities can also help homeowners save. For example, a programmable thermostat can turn down the heat during the day and then turn it back up when rush hour is approaching.
- Choosing an urban rather than rural location is better for the environment because it provides convenient access to amenities while encouraging positive habits. For example, being close to a supermarket means that homeowners and their families can walk rather than drive, thus saving on gas.
