What is Green Building and why should I do it?
The answer simply put is: Green Building, also known as sustainable, ecological, and eco-designed, is a way of looking at buildings in terms of reducing energy use, conserving water, improving indoor air quality, and reducing dependence on our natural resources. Green building features within your home may be more expensive while building but it will save you money in the long run by not wasting any energy and using resources that will be more cost efficient in the long run.
Your UBuildIt Certified Green Build Planning Consultant will help you to look at Green Building purely from a cost benefit standpoint!
There are a number of ways to incorporate Green Building into your home
If you’re looking to turn your home into a completely green home, you will have to start from the ground up. You’ll want to look into your foundation options and see if there is a green option and then move to the other materials and incorporate the best green supplies. Once the structure of your home is built, you’ll then move on to the exterior qualities. You can decide whether you want to use solar panels or look into plumbing options that will conserve water. Then, when deciding on the final touches, you will research what the best, eco-friendly appliances and other features are. From the large items like your washer and dryer to even the smallest items like your blinds, there are a number of ways to incorporate green elements into your home.
For those that are just stepping into the green building world, you can always pick which green elements are the most important to you and work those into your home. This will allow you to keep cost in mind while still doing your part to protect the environment.
