Sacramento is Going Green

Larry O. Doss Monday, December 7, 2009

Are you planning to build a home in Sacramento? Then you will want to consider the new trend in Sac Town, which is, living in Green Homes. Does that mean you have to color your house green?? No. Then what are Green Homes? Green Homes are places of healthier living. They are constructed using fewer resources when compared to the traditional homes. Green homes create much less waste as they use less energy and water. The main factor is to reduce the energy utilization. The characteristics of a Green Home are many.

• The ordinary windows are replaced by windows that are energy efficient to cut down on the costs of heating and cooling.
• Incandescent lights are replaced by long lasting florescent compact lights. These lights use less energy and waste less in the form of heat radiation.
• Wind turbines and solar panels built out of materials available in a local store will make your house greener by decreasing the amount of energy utilized.
• Rain water is harvested to serve purposes of a car wash, gardening, etc. This is sure to reduce your water bill by a considerable amount.
• Energy consuming kitchen appliances are replaced by solar cookers and water heaters to completely utilize solar energy during the day.

Green Homes are an attraction as they are eco friendly and less expensive. The materials used are natural and reusable. Your house can be completely eco friendly with solar power, rain water harvesting and bamboo flooring. Green Homes are an effort to reduce environmental pollution. The waste generated during construction of green homes is very less. Most of the construction materials are reusable. There are no harmful chemicals released into the environment. These homes are designed with proper insulation and drainage facilities. The expenses involved in the construction of a Green Home depend on its size.

The earth now is prone to global warming. There are abrupt changes in the climatic conditions all over. In such a situation, Green Homes are an initiative from your end to save the planet. Green Homes are environment friendly as they do not have a negative effect on the environment. Green living also gives a feeling of responsibility towards the environment.
