Eco friendly homes

Eco-Friendly Homes

  • Eco-Friendly: having little or no impact on the Native Eco System.

  • The most extreme eco-friendly houses of the future reduce the environmental impact on the planet and demonstrates how ‘Less means more Quality Living’


Zero energy design

Zero Energy Design

A ZEH combines state-of-the-art, energy

efficient construction techniques and equipment

with renewable energy systems to return as

much energy as it takes on an annual basis.

Goal:

  • Reduce carbon footprint

  • Increase energy efficiency


Steps to a successful zero design home

Steps to a Successful Zero Design Home

  • Decrease the energy requirements for space heating, cooling and water heating.

  • Increase the efficiency of the furnace (or heat pump), and the air-conditioner.

  • Install a solar hot water pre-heat system, an efficient backup water heater, and an efficient distribution system.

  • Install efficient lighting fixtures.

  • Install efficient appliances.

  • Install a properly sized photovoltaic (PV) system.

  • Turn off lights, computers, and appliances when not in use.


Examples

Examples..

Googleplex, Google's headquarters in Mountain View, California, completed a 1.6 megawatt photovoltaic campus-wide renewable power generation system. Google (and others) have developed advanced technology for major reductions in computer-server energy consumption (which is becoming a major portion of modern zero-energy commercial building design, along with daylighting and efficient electrical lighting systems).
