An emerging theme in home building/home design we’ve previously discussed is incorporating ideas like sustainability, eco-friendly and ‘green’ amenities. These design features will not only help homebuilders save the environment, they will also help save on their bills later down the road! Legion Builder understands the desire for eco-friendly living and we are here to work with you to build a dream and green home.
1. Energy Star Appliances
Did you know energy star appliances are up to 40% more efficient? Energy Star boasts that their program “stands alone as the most successful voluntary energy conservation movement in history”. From refrigerators to air purifiers, Energy Star is the smarter way to go if you are looking to save energy and protect the environment.
2. Low Water Appliances
The appliances that normally use the most water include washing machine, dishwasher, shower and toilet. Simply reducing just one of these could save you a lot of money in the long run, while also helping to conserve water in your area!
3. Energy Efficient Light Fixtures
By installing light fixtures that have earned the Energy Star you are not only saving money, you are also protecting the environment from harmful greenhouse gas emissions. Utilizing these options distributes light more efficiently and effectively which in turn brings quality and also cutting edge lighting design into your home.
4. Consider Solar Panels
Solar energy is about as natural as it gets, it is not only sustainable but also renewable. Solar energy helps to slow and stop global warming by not emitting harmful pollutions into our air. Plus, it can save you thousands of dollars in energy bills (especially in very sunny regions)!
Saving money and helping the environment are two things that don’t normally go hand in hand, but in the case of home building they do! Legion Builders is committed to creating you a home you are proud and excited to reside in.
