Why We Should All Want A Sustainable Home
Builders in Surrey are used to building and working on houses of all shapes and sizes. The variety always keeps our jobs more exciting. But there’s one type of house that is changing the way we build.
Your everyday house is far from efficient, although over the decades we have innovated and discovered new techniques such as double glazing and insulation; it’s still not where we want it to be. We waste hundreds of pounds each year as a household in heating that leaves the house, and water that we waste. Sustainable homes are changing the way we use energy sources. These innovative methods mean that you are limiting what you use and reusing what you don’t. They can be energy efficient with solar panels and closed foam insulation or water-efficient with advanced irrigation systems. These homes can lead the way to a new era of leaving behind dependency on non-renewable energy.
Building a house is never cheap, but with a sustainable home, you can get your money back. Over the years it has been proven that homeowners spend significantly less on utility bills as their houses are designed to keep in the heat with low-emissivity windows and energy-efficient heat pumps. It has now been proven that houses such as a Net Zero home, can be completely powered by eco-friendly systems, meaning no extra unwanted costs. Eco-friendly homes are also designed and built to be extremely durable, unlike normal homes they are built with stronger materials that are designed to last. We, as builders in Surrey, are fascinated by how we can help you and innovate, to find new ways of building. Durability is a key factor of how we can help as it means that a homeowner spends less on maintenance over the years, contributing to lower overall costs.
The world is changing how we use the resources around us. Builders are stereotypically known to use and waste low-quality materials. But we pride ourselves on using high-quality materials sourced locally from Surrey, builders like us want to promote the use of recycled materials that can lower the footprint of a home. With efficient plumbing to reduce water waste and advanced heating techniques such as sealed attic spaces, your home can reduce energy waste. We help you do your bit to save the environment and reduce global warming.
It is now more important than ever to start building more sustainable homes. In the coming decades, sustainable homes are expected to skyrocket in popularity. This could mean the value of your sustainable home now could double overtime. They are expected to become a trend that we want to help start. They are already known to have a faster resale than a normal house, with a higher asking price. Furthermore, owners of particular houses such as the Asheville green home can benefit from tax credits due to the efficiency of the home. Builders in Surrey like us can change the way you build, through new techniques and ideas, we can boost the value of your house.
