MATTHEWS, NC--(Marketwire - Jul 18, 2012) - Melodika.net reports that an increasing number of homeowners are seeking sustainable living options. In doing so, they are improving the environmental impact their properties have while decreasing, in many cases, the operational costs associated with running their homes. Homes by Vanderbuilt, a builder of prefabricated, modular properties, asserts that adhering to Energy Star guidelines can make a significant impact on the expense and environmental friendliness of houses.
According to the article, homeowners can incorporate natural energy sources, recycled materials, and sustainable items into the construction of their home to promote a greener lifestyle. Additionally, they can hire a third party inspector to determine new ways to enhance the environmental friendliness of their structures. These inspectors can pinpoint, during the construction process, areas in which greener materials and processes can be implemented to improve the overall sustainability of the home.
Furthermore, asserts the article, homes can be audited after construction is complete. If the home meets the requirements, it can receive a variety of certifications, including those from Energy Star, NGBS, and HERS Resnet.
Homes by Vanderbuilt asserts that homes constructed according to Energy Star guidelines will save their owners thousands of dollars in operating costs while simultaneously decreasing carbon dioxide emissions. Over the course of the year, the reduction in emissions is significant.
In addition to incorporating greener building practices and materials into the construction of the home, Homes by Vanderbuilt notes that homeowners can improve the environmental impact of their houses by changing daily habits and switching to greener products. For example, the use of green cleaning products and the local recycling system can reduce the waste accumulated by the home while promoting an environmentally friendly (and safe) living environment. Additionally, homeowners can limit their use of water and electricity, maintain an energy-efficient temperature, and purchase used furniture to create a greener lifestyle.
Homes by Vanderbuilt believes that environmentally friendly lifestyles can improve the quality of life, the natural world, and the cost associated with homeownership. Individuals who are aware of their carbon footprint can make the necessary changes to create a greener living space while saving money on electricity, water, and other bills.
Homes by Vanderbuilt hopes that the green movement will continue to grow and positively impact the world.
