Almost everyone is concerned about protecting and preserving the environment and reducing our dependence on greenhouse gas emitting power plants, so many home builders are infusing their new Halton Hills real estate designs with the capacity to generate renewable energy. The most commonly seen are solar panels, which can be integrated into any roof design. But wind turbines can also be added to a lawn or roof, and in certain areas, geothermal heat from drilling deep down is possible.
Waste not, want not. That's how the saying goes. Well, some builders are putting it into practice. When they're making a new home in Georgetown, Ontario, they won't order all new materials from the factory. They'll scavenge scrap heaps, auctions, and derelict properties for old materials to use in new and creative ways. A water tower may become a swimming pool. An airplane propeller might be turned into a ceiling fan. Old wood can be used in construction and old windows reclaimed and incorporated into the design. Homeowners like it because the result is always unique.
Generating your own electricity isn't the only way to cut back on greenhouse gases. You can also reduce the amount of power your home needs. Your tankless water heater might run on the excess heat from the sun on your driveway. Your windows would lose let heat to the outdoors, your toilet and shower would save water, and your appliances would all be able to operate on significantly less electricity. Some homes are even LEEDS certified, which is normally for large buildings.
It's easy to remember to forget to turn off the lights in our Toronto condominiums, or to find it hard to regular the temperature. That's why many builders are into smart homes, which contain a home-wide computer system that controls the heat, lights, doors, intercoms, windows, internet, and anything else the homeowner would like via remotes or built in computer screens. Smart homes make looking after your property easier and they can be programmed to accommodate just about any lifestyle.
