If you are planning on building a home or remodeling extensively, then you should strongly consider green building in order to reduce the negative impact that you have on the environment. The following are a few more reasons why you should build green:
Typical building projects throughout the country account for 39 percent of all energy use, 12 percent of all water consumption, 38 percent of all carbon dioxide emissions, and 68 percent of all electricity consumption. As you see, building projects use a huge amount of resources – green building will greatly reduce the consumption of these resources.
As such, green building will help to improve the quality of our air and water, reduce the stream of waste, conserve and restore our natural resources, and help to protect and enhance our ecosystems and biodiversity. Not to mention the reduced operating costs, better life-cycle performance, and improved occupant productivity that green building will result in as well.
Building or remodeling homes tends to result in a huge waste of resources. To reduce the waste of valuable resources and take advantages of the many benefits, consider green building. For more information, contact us at Trilogy Builds today.
