A Brief Look at the “Green” House

Posted: Wednesday, December 2nd, 2015

As many people are discovering, there are a number of benefits to insulating your home and reducing your environmental footprint. Those who are building or renovating their own house, can easily get bogged down in the details and overlook the energy-efficiency of their new home. If your customers are building a new home, then this is a perfect time for them to add energy-efficient, or “green,” features that will help take advantage of low energy costs and ensure that their house is marketable if they choose to sell it in the future.

How It Stays Environmentally Friendly

In order for your customers to lower their energy bills and reduce their environmental footprint, it is important that they keep their house as environmentally friendly as possible. To ensure that a house is energy-efficient and environmentally friendly, there are a number of different things that can be done. One of the simplest ways of saving energy and cutting utility bills is to install a thermostat. A thermostat will ensure your customer’s house stays at a reasonable temperature and does not allow the heating to stay on longer than necessary. Homeowners may also be able to reduce their energy levels and save money by using energy-saving light bulbs, as they use less energy and last longer than traditional bulbs.

One of the best ways of conserving water is to use a low-flow plumbing system. Your customers can use a great deal of water from flushing the toilet in their home, so the best place to start is with a low-flow toilet, which can save a considerable amount of water over the year. Another way to improve the energy-efficiency of a household is to ensure that energy-efficient doors have been installed. By fitting composite front doors your customers can reduce their energy requirements as they will not be losing heat or gaining unwanted warmth from poorly fitted doors.
