Eco Friendly, or ecological, construction is developing a structure on Phuket, Thailand that is beneficial or non-harmful to the environmental surroundings, and resource efficient. Otherwise referred to as green building, this sort of construction is efficient in its usage of local and renewable materials, and in the vitality required to build it, and the energy generated while being within it.
Energy efficient construction on Phuket, Thailand and worldwide has created in a reaction to the knowledge that buildings have a generally negative impact upon our environment and our natural resources. This includes transporting materials hundreds or tens and thousands of miles, which has a negative impact in the power required to transport them, and also in emissions of hazardous chemicals from a poorly designed building that produces, and traps them.
Economically insulated by incorporating earthbags, logs, stones, recyclables, bamboo and straw, eco-friendly homes cause considerably less injury to the surrounding environment.
Other Environmentally friendly benefits include:
- Lower maintenance requirements
- Consistent temperature
- Higher quality air (and better health)
- Reduced waste
- Reduced expenses
- Off grid
Why Are Energy efficient Homes Growing in Popularity?
Sustainability is a phrase that has been used more frequently over time with reducing carbon emissions and saving the surroundings on top of everyone’s agenda. This has caused several homeowners to relocate from traditional bricks-and-mortar houses into different types of accommodation.
The Range of Ecologically Built Structures:
Many Eco-friendly options are now available to those wishing to create and build an eco-friendly dwelling. Architects, engineers and builders worldwide are now using construction techniques which have been developed throughout human history, in response to local environmental concerns and the physical resource opportunities available, in conjunction with 21st century technological refinements.
These vary from rammed earth construction, which involves clay-based material mixed with water and then rammed into brick or solid wall form, suitable in hot and dry climates, to straw bale houses, literally using bales of straw while the core structure.Straw is a superb insulator, is a capable material that filters the air passing through it, and contrary to expectation, is fire-resistant when compressed. And it’s low cost.
Other options are so-called earth ships, which use recycled car tyres filled up with earth whilst the buildings walls, or Yurts or Gers, the semi-permanent nomadic tents of Inner Asia, that utilise local wood, wool and canvas, to literally go on, with the land. These examples is visible as development that’s a low impact upon the environmental surroundings, which utilise and blend in with the neighborhood environment, and could be dismantled and moved easily.
Features of Ecological Building and Some Techniques
In more conventional building construction, it’s how technology and building materials merge and create ecological resources which can be the key to green success, in addition to using simple and readily available materials.
As an example, using pulped recycled paper for roof insulation is really a simple but highly effective ecological resource. The harm to human health from asbestos insulation, presented in rolls in thousands homes, is now well known. Asbestos also takes hundreds of years to decompose in landfill.
Other features of an ecological building might include:
- The varied use of solar panels for domestic warm water heating.
- Water conservation, possibly including biological waste water treatment and re-use, and the easy collection and recycling of rainwater for garden use.
- Low energy lightbulbs, which can last up to 100 times more than regular bulbs.
- Cellulose insulation (like the paper in the above example).
- Non-toxic or lead-free paints and wood preservatives.
- Locally-grown and harvested timber from sustainably managed forests.
Be it healthy homes, natural homes, a tiny house, Earthship homes, off-grid homes, rammed-earth homes, straw-bale, or general homes that have been converted into a friendly to the environment home an enormous number of eco-friendly housing can be acquired for the growing number of people in search of sustainable living. As an example building, or turning any type of Phuket property into Phuket Environmentally friendly home is not as expensive as people might think, and no more expensive than investing in a normal property.
