Technologies Used in Green Home Constructions

Because of the rising environmental crisis, all over the world people are trying to fight against it and now they are more attentive towards the Earth and its Environment. They are focusing on all the options which are necessary to be adopted to help in the restoration of our non-renewable resources.
Since non-renewable sources is a resource of economic value that cannot be readily replaced by natural means at a quick enough space to keep up with the consumption but if we try, we can at least decrease the overall burden on non-renewable resources.

There are certain ways through which technology can be used to create an eco-friendly home, these are as follows:

Solar Arrays

Photovoltaic solar panels absorb sunlight as a source of energy to generate direct current electricity. A photovoltaic module is a packaged, connected assembly of photovoltaic solar cells available in different voltages and wattages. Photovoltaic modules constitute the solar array of a photovoltaic system that generates and supplies electricity in commercial as well as residential applications.

Solar panels do not generate any harmful gases and the energy generated from the solar panels is not reserved for areas that are typically sunny and dry.

Automated Window Treatment

Automated window treatment consists of controllable window treatments with the proper fabric to regulate the intensity and attenuate daylight penetration into your home. Making the most of daylight in our homes simply reduces our need for electric light and saves energy.

This type of window coverings offer privacy and light control and can help us save money and energy by preventing heat from coming in during the summer season and escape during winter season.

Energy Monitors

Home energy monitors are the devices which helps us to find energy sucking devices and lower our energy fees, these energy monitors are installed in our homes electrical panel and provides insight into our energy use and home activity through our free IOS and android apps. These energy monitors are meant for residential use which come in quite cheap and are fairly easy to work.

Energy Star Appliances

Energy star certified appliances are built to standards that make them energy efficient. Energy star is the trusted government based symbol for energy efficiency helping us all save money and protect the environment through energy efficient products and services. The energy star label that is easily visible on the stickers on the respective electronic product was established by the government to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants caused by the inefficient use of energy. Use of energy efficient appliances minimizes the exploitation of natural resources.

Rainwater Harvesting System

Rain water harvesting is the process of storage of rainwater for re-use rather than allowing it to run off. Nowadays many communities all across the world are adopting this method as an effective means of conserving water. Rainwater harvesting mechanism consists of a drainage like system connected to a cistern on the rooftop. Rainwater after collection is stored in deep pits and can be used when necessary for watering plants, washing toilets etc.

Rainwater harvesting is one of the simplest and oldest methods of self-supply of water for households usually financed by the user.
