How You Can Make Your New Build More Eco-Friendly

So you have the funds and the land available to start on your new build project but are not too sure on how you can make it eco-friendly. 

If you are struggling for ideas then these useful solutions could be just what you need. 

Consult With a Professional 

Having ideas is one thing but knowing realistically whether you can actually proceed with your vision will be confirmed with the help of a professional. Getting in contact with experienced architects will help your ideas develop practically throughout the construction process. They will also be able to provide useful eco-friendly solutions which you can then apply to your new build. 

Install Solar Panels 

Solar panels can be an effective way to be more eco-friendly in your new home. With the help of bright, sunny weather it can be an easy way to provide energy in order to power your home. So it is worth including these in your design plans. 

Use a Smart Meter 

When you set up your gas and electricity plan with your supplier, you could ask them to include a smart meter in your plan. This will enable you to easily track how much you are using energy wise and perhaps encourage you to be more frugal when it comes to your usage. 

Opt For Eco-Friendly Lighting 

When you are planning which light fixtures to include in your home, think about designs that can easily incorporate energy efficient light bulbs. They use a lot less energy than conventional light bulbs and certainly won't need to be replaced nearly as often. 

Insulate Your Attic 

Heating can get lost through your attic if it is not properly insulated. So when you are planning your new build it will certainly be a good idea if you can incorporate plans to insulate your roof. This will help to keep your home warmer for longer and may even reduce the amount of heating you need in the colder months, which will save you energy. 

Plan Bright, Airy Rooms In Your Design Plan 

The more sunlight you can incorporate into your rooms, the brighter it will feel. This will mean that you do not need to switch on any artificial lights until it gets dark. Reducing the amount of electricity you use is a positive way to cut back on your electric bill a little too, which is certainly a good thing. 

Use Double Glazing For Your Windows 

When you have your windows installed you want to make sure that you choose good quality double glazed ones. This will be another effective way to prevent drafts from entering your home and will maintain the warmth from the radiators indoors. The warmer your home feels, the less likely you are to consume non-renewable forms of energy to heat it.
