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).
