Top Trends for Sustainable Townhomes
September 26, 2017
Not so long ago, sustainable living meant you had to buy a country house, start gardening, and raising livestock. Now, you can very well live in the big city and reap the same benefits – help the planet, save money, improve quality of life, etc. – by simply incorporating eco-friendly technologies into your house. Not to mention, if you ever put your Dallas townhome for sale, you can get a better deal.
Check out these latest trends for sustainable homes that have been making waves for quite sometime now.
More and more people switch from big houses to smaller ones where every square inch has more than one functionality. They choose convertible furniture to change the purpose of a space. A folding table can become a nice piece of art on the wall or a library room can transform into a comfortable bedroom.
Green building is often associated with smart homes that incorporate state-of-the-art technology. Just think about being able to control your appliances, HVAC system or lighting with the touch of a button on your smartphone. You can preheat the oven on your way home, close or open the windows or adjust the thermostat.
This system dims or switches off artificial lights when a room is unoccupied or when enough daylight is available for you to perform efficiently. You’ll get more artificial light on a cloudy day than on a sunny day.
Solar and Wind Power
Solar panels are not a novelty anymore. In fact, with the decreasing prices and the information available, they are more accessible than ever. Wind electrical systems follow closely behind as one of the most cost-effective home-based renewable energy systems, lowering electricity bills by 50%-90%.
With eco-friendly materials and energy-saving building techniques, sustainable homes are one answer to people’s concern regarding their family’s health. Low VOC materials reduce the risk of respiratory illness while smart ventilation systems bring fresh outdoor air, continuously improving air quality.
