Green movement has amazingly and rapidly developed over the past years to help prevent global warming effects. Green movement has spread to almost every aspect of our life, including the home building. Self-sustaining homes and green homes are perhaps not an alien concept to you now. There have been many green home plans that have been developed, and many people have tried and earned benefits from living in a green home. So, are you interested in converting your home into a green home? Well, fortunately for you, we are going to discuss about green home plans. So, check this out!
In our today’s discussion of green home plans, we’re going to give you several points that you need to know when you’re designing and planning a green home. Firstly, throw away those electrical appliances and equipment that cost too much energy. The key to a green home is to save as much energy as we can. If we cost too much energy, the carbon emission rate will heighten, and that obviously will further worsen the global warming effects. So, use energy-saving home appliances like solar panel and implement “go green” systems like natural ventilation system (as applied in the IKAROS House). Secondly, don’t make your house too crowded with clutters that are not necessarily needed. Thirdly, make home plans that won’t use too much construction material. This is because you can reduce waste and labor, which can also contribute to preventing worsened global warming effects.
So, those are some matters you need to keep in mind and remember when you are making your own green home plans. With green home, you can stay healthy and you can also prevent global warming from further worsening. Besides, it’s become a trend over the past few years. Let’s raise awareness and start the trend of healthy living in a green home!
