What is an Eco Home
Sustainable, healthy and environmentally sound along with the efficient use of power, water and building materials are among the most considered aspects of eco homes. Present day Eco homes are designed to offer so much more than just "Off the Grid" living. Perhaps it's a new build or a renovation, the opportunities for materials and services to make your eco dream a reality are finally here. Eco homes are now at the forefront of the portfolios of many architects and home designers. Comfort, style and sophistication needn't be sacrificed in the pursuit of sustainable living.
No list exists of specific features to define an eco home, but we suggest it may include features such as LED lighting, low VOC, passive heating from the sun, solar power, high level density insulation - with no thermal bridging, rain water collection and a vegetable garden.
Ecobob's philosophy behind eco friendly houses encompasses 'high performance homes' 'zero energy homes' and 'zero energy housing'.
