Green building is one of the excellent options that Shore-Line Construction offers to their soon-to-be custom homeowners. Many of their clients choose their green building options, receiving all the short and long-term advantages it boasts. Why incorporate green building concepts into your custom waterfront home? Take a look at these examples and benefits.
Examples of Green Building Concepts
When speaking on green building concepts, one refers to the different energy efficiency technology available for residential and commercial buildings. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) lays out strict codes that builders must follow to achieve a green building as well. Examples of green building concepts include Energy Star appliances, solar panels, geothermal systems, rainwater collection systems, energy-efficient doors and windows, and even water-saving faucets. As shown below, incorporating these items into your custom home have great advantages.
Benefits of Green Building Concepts
In Maryland, one can receive significant tax credit for implementing green building practices. Your credit options might look slightly different depending on your county, but on the whole, you can get more or less tax benefits depending on how “green” your building is. One must have a green building certification, and these are available at varying levels.
Lower Energy Bills
Green building also lowers your energy bills. Depending on the types of green concepts you implement, you can have lower water bills, heating and cooling bills, and electricity bills. At the end of the day, your energy-efficient home will avail you with free natural resources and overall lower energy consumption.
Reduced Construction Waste
It also reduces construction waste, that is, an excess of building materials. The aim of all efficient buildings is to use only what is needed to gain maximum results. One installs only what the design calls for and may recycle or reuse some products in the process.
Better Indoor Air Quality
What’s the result? A home that helps you breathe easier. Green construction optimizes home insulation and ventilation, allowing fresh air to permeate the home while maintaining comfortable temperatures. The house will also have non-toxic building materials, decreasing toxins in the air.
A More Comfortable Home
One can gain tax benefits, lower living costs, and energy efficiency from a more energy-efficient home, but in everyday life, you’ll get to enjoy a highly comfortable home. Good indoor air quality, temperature control, humidity level, and natural lighting can all be yours.
