RoomFour assists clients in identifying opportunities to enhance environmental efficiencies and establish healthy and eco-friendly living environments. Designing a tailor-made sustainable home can result in a more pleasant and healthier living space, in sync with the natural surroundings, and can yield long-term savings on energy expenses.
At RoomFour, we offer knowledgeable and pragmatic guidance on sustainable materials and energy-efficient options. This may involve recommendations on elements such as windows, insulation, ventilation, heating and cooling systems, energy-saving lighting, eco-friendly appliances, and solar and water harvesting techniques.
Green living strategies for your home can include:
A sustainable home can contribute to a healthier living environment in several ways, including:
Building a sustainable home generally has more upfront costs than building a standard home, however it is important to consider the long-term benefits and savings.
The initial cost of sustainable materials, energy-efficient appliances, and high-performance systems or items, i.e., cooling systems, windows, and insulation, can be higher than their standard, cheaper counterparts. However, the investment in sustainable features will result in lower operating costs and greater long-term savings on utility expenses.
The demand for sustainable homes is growing at a rapid rate and are looked upon more desirably by the consumer/homeowner as they can have a higher resale value and can potentially offer a better return on investment in the long run. Homes that do not contain sustainable features and construction methods will result in being discounted and reduced in value.
Ultimately, building a sustainable home can be a higher investment upfront, but the benefits of energy savings, increased comfort, and reduced environmental impact can make it a worthwhile investment in the long term.
At RoomFour, we promote early collaboration between an architect, designer and builder.
