The progression of our advanced society has come with a price tag of quickly consuming our planet’s limited resources. We are facing an accelerated time-line of a life without things such as fossil fuels, and humanity is on the fast track to find alternative resources for energy. Our transportation infrastructure is changing each year to adopt a lower carbon footprint via electric vehicles, and they continue to investigate potential alternatives such as hydrogen cells and advanced battery technology.
Other industries are also taking note of these technological advancements, and many are entering the race to reduce consumption of hydrocarbons and using cleaner methods of production. The new home building industry in London is no exception, with novel methods arising each year to create a greener future.
It is now possible for new build homes to be constructed with advanced environmentally friendly techniques and materials to not only greatly reduce the carbon footprint of the home itself, but provide for more efficient energy consumption during the life of the home. The idea of a zero-carbon home is now becoming a reality without sacrificing durability, appearance and the comfort of a traditional London home. Sustainable home building is largely focused on construction methods and materials that provide for highly efficient energy consumption. A home builder using modern methods would have an eco-focus at every step of the production process from raw material selection to installation.
Governmental incentives have made environmentally friendly new home building easier than ever, such as programs to have lofts insulated or cavity walls filled in to provide for better heating and cooling retention. For example, one of the outcomes of the 2008 financial crisis was a boiler scrappage program where people were provided cash to have inefficient boilers replaced with more energy saving alternatives.
Huge amount of money can be saved on groundworks stage of construction, that’s why it’s so important to get proper team for your project. Suistainable homes are the future, but not every company is ready to lead the process corectly.
