Many residential property owners groan whenever they hear the term – Go Green, with their mind set filled with the thought that any mention of the word “green” involves greenbacks sliding out of their wallet. This trend is diminishing rapidly however, primarily due to the fact that a large number of residential property owners across the country are discovering the highly impressive number of benefits offered to them and an even larger number are enjoying the same.
Many residential property owners believe that “going green” means getting involved in a large amount of activities which would disrupt their everyday activities. The truth, however, is that going green is actually a process which can be phased as per the convenience of the residential property owners.
The core objective of going green is to not only minimize the amount of pollution caused by the house, but to increase the efficiency of the house to the point where the savings reimburse the residential property owners for the additional initial expense and then go on to offer them these savings for a much longer time, as compared to conventional building practices. The following pointers show residential property owners the benefits of going green.
Installing LED lighting in the home is one of the best ways for residential property owners to “go green”. Many people might have their doubts about this new type of lighting but energy efficient CFLs or Compact Florescent Lamps consume one-fourth of the energy used by incandescent lamps.
LEDs consume one tenth of the electricity required by an incandescent lamp to provide the same amount of light. Combine that with no risk of mercury leakage as opposed to CFLs and a total life which is over six times more than that of a CFL and over forty times that of an incandescent lamp. This, along with the extreme durability of LEDs makes them the clear winner.
Another great tip is to opt for the harnessing of solar power. If you live in an area that experiences a lot of sunshine, then you can harness that energy to handle minor energy expenses. Electric water heaters are very energy intense, but a solar water heater can eliminate that expense completely. Solar panels can also go a long way in providing efficient power backup, in case of a blackout or an emergency. Using solar energy as a supplement to the existing power structure eases electricity bills as well.
So, join the ranks of the thousands of residential property owners across the country who are embracing green building practices and just sit back and enjoy the savings that come with working in tandem with the environment.For buying any property in Sunny Basant Enclave or for information on Sunny Enclave Plots contact us at our office
