Homes are going green, and these trends are shaping eco-friendly home builds.

When building a new home in 2016, there’s a lot to consider that wasn’t a factor just a few decades ago. Specifically, faced with environmental issues across the planet, more and more home builders are working to create spaces that co-exist with – rather than negatively impact – the environment. These green trends are shaping home building.

Cut chemicals.

Homeowners want their homes to be healthy for the earth and for their own bodies. High-quality paints with zero (or close to zero) volatile organic compounds (VOCs) can help do exactly that. Not only do they not release harmful, smog-creating chemicals as they dry, they also don’t leach carbon-based, health-hazardous substances into the air families breathe.

Cut shipping.

Food isn’t the only thing people are buying locally. When builders choose locally sourced materials, they prevent the need to ship heavy loads, eliminating the pollution that transportation would otherwise create.

Cut waste.

An airtight home stays warmer or cooler, depending on what you need. This cuts energy waste (and your utility bills), so it’s a huge component of building green. On top of insulating walls, it’s also important to choose doors and windows that keep your home comfortable. Technology is also helping reduce energy waste, as programmable thermostats can ensure you’re not heating or cooling your home while you’re away.
