As one step to love this earth can be started from home. The initial step is once when starting to build a house. This becomes an important step because the house will stand for decades, so at some stage start building needs immediate attention from the things that must be done to create an environmentally friendly home.
Making Green House
Home environment will not only save the environment but will also make you more healthy, comfortable and economical. Creating a green house (green house) or home environment include the following stages.
Minimizing the Use of Natural Resources in the Development Process
At the time of construction of the house, try to minimize the use of building materials. You can control the use of building materials and talking to the driver in order to use materials sparingly and do not over-purchase building materials and ultimately not used.
For example, when you need plywood and timbers as supporting cast an upper floor. You can use the wood from the former home that has been completed and can still be used. Or how about the placement of sand so that the sand is not trampled upon and ultimately not used anymore.
Proper design and mature also important that not a lot of building materials is wasted. Design errors or design is modified, it is likely there will be parts that have been built over so that demolished building materials is wasted.
Choosing Eco-Friendly Building Materials
Thanks to technological developments, now many eco-friendly building materials that can be used. One way to conserve the use of wood, which means minimizing the felling of trees and saving forests as an important part of life on earth.
Some eco-friendly building materials are mild steel used for roofing, aluminum / PVC or UPVC for doors and windows, use PVC doors from the plastic, gypsum as a substitute for plywood to the ceiling, as an alternative to the use of wood, can use recycled wood or plastic timber which is also a result of the recycling process.
Another positive thing from the use of such materials can save and because the process of artificial plants, usually more awake quality.
Electric Energy Efficient Homes
Have you ever participated in a campaign to turn off their lights for one hour? It is intended that we are aware of for saving electrical energy. Need to be made in order to design the minimal use of electrical energy. Make home design with natural light sufficient openings so no need to use electricity in the morning and afternoon. Making good ventilation, how to set the air circulation will also reduce the use of air conditioning because the air inside the house is not hot. Make Toran to hold water is also one of the steps to save electricity because it does not need to use electricity to power the pump large when using water.
Using Alternative Energy
There is a system which can generate electricity or solar photovoltaic (PV). This energy can replace electrical energy. Widely used alternative energy is to utilize solar energy or wind power. A common example is the use of heating water using solar energy. PV on the roof to accommodate solar thermal to heat water and processed. With a more complex system, solar thermal can meet the electrical energy needs for the entire house.
Houses Efficient Use of Water
Water is an important substance in life. Inside the house, the use of water at most. Water used for washing clothes, dishes, cars, vegetables, to flush plant, water for bathing and a variety of other purposes in the shower and for other purposes. When used with wasteful not impossible water will run out. Thus, it is necessary in the management of water use in the home.
How to save water in the home can be started from the construction of the house. For example, by using dual flush toilets and water-saving faucets use sensors. With proper knowledge and application, you can design process disposal and water to be recycled, the use of waste water from the kitchen and bathroom reprocessed so that it can be used for watering plants, cars, and more.
In everyday use, the water can be saved, for example, vitamin-rich water that has been used for washing vegetables can be collected and used for watering plants to save water, can be done by making catchment wells that will collect rain water, or the practical steps to make the hole bipori in the park.
Park home into a one we can preserve the environment. In the park, we can plant a variety of plants that serve as retaining rainwater, maintaining stability and soil fertility and produce oxygen. Trees and plants in the garden can also serve as a heat shield and a dust barrier so that the home can be more comfortable.
You can choose a model home to be built, but do not forget to keep making the environmentally friendly or green house. This is a concrete step that we preserve the environment. In return, eco-friendly home can save money on your home each month.
