What are Green Homes?
Green homes are the houses that are particularly designed to support the environment. The main concentration while making green homes is on the efficient use of material for building them, energy and water.
A green home is made in such a way that we can use sunlight, tree cover etc, in the best possible way as a source of energy. The building material used is also eco-friendly.
Recently, green homes and farm living are being promoted too much since this is the need of the hour.
Why Green Homes?
When we construct a building a lot of natural resources, energy and building material is used. To reduce this burden on the environment which would later be harmful for mankind, people are moving to build green homes and are looking up to farm living.
Reduce Impact on the Environment- When we make green homes, we use renewable or recycled material and also the material that is energy efficient. This reduces the adverse effect on the environment. If everyone starts taking such small steps of building green homes or moving to farm living then surely we can move to a positive environment.
Energy Efficient- Green homes are designed in such a way that you get natural light as much as possible which reduces the use of artificial light. It also avoids the use of non-renewable sources. Solar panels are installed to use the sun’s energy.
Improved Environment- Using renewable sources always have an upper hand over the use of non-renewable sources for many reasons one of which is that such resources helps in reducing pollution. They also in maintaining the pace at which the climate changes.
Better health- As discussed in the previous post, people who adopt farm living have better health as compared to the people living in urban areas. Same goes for people living in green homes. The amount of pollutants in the air get reduced due to them. Use of eco-friendly material for construction, use of solar panels, use of renewable sources etc. reduce the chances of major health issues.
Return on Investment- The installation cost of some appliances like solar panels, geothermal heaters etc. while making a green home may be a lot higher as compared to their other alternatives but they save money later as the bills are reduced to a large extent.
Durability- It is seen that apart from being eco-friendly, green homes are also more durable than the traditional ones because of the material used in construction. Recycled material used while constructing these homes last longer.
An Investment for Future Generation- Since you are protecting your environment by having green homes or going for farm living, that means you are creating a healthy environment for generation to come. The future generation would not have to struggle with this kind of pollution.
Adopting such options would make you a happier person. You will feel more positive about yourself, others and the environment. By doing good for the earth, you would surely feel at peace. This would also be a valuable learning for generations to come. The next generation would also take care of the environment in the way you did. You would have a different perception towards the world around you. All you need to do is to put in a little efforts and some kindness.
