Energy Efficiency Features For Green Homes

Solar Panels

Solar rooftop panels use the renewable energy of the sun to provide a lightweight and affordable way to enhance the energy utilization of a home. This energy is then converted into light energy, fuel energy, and heat energy. Solar energy does not deplete the earth’s natural resources and does not emit harmful gases into the air. The importance of solar energy is that it can be connected easily to existing electrical systems. Solar energy is easy to distribute, affordable and dependable.

The renewable solar energy that is community owned significantly reduces carbon footprint and educates people about creating a sustainable low-carbon future. This helps support a sustainable lifestyle by avoiding other means of energy that uses fossil fuels. Solar panels also store power without the need for wasteful processes.

In addition to their eco-friendliness, solar panels can be decorative too. Beautiful glass roof tiles or mosaic tiles allow builders to build solar-powered homes that are energy-efficient with world-class design.


Solar Light For Common Areas

Electric lighting accounts for about 25% of a home’s energy use. You can increase your home’s energy efficiency is by reducing the amount of energy you spend on lighting through complete utilization of natural solar light. Simple sunlight can save money on your energy bill by reducing the need to use electric light around your home. Enhancing solar light in the home is a great way to go green and save money.

Using solar light for common areas in the home is dependent on the size and placement of windows that let sunlight in. The best builders use highly energy-efficient windows, which reduce the need for artificial lighting during daylight hours without causing heating or cooling problems.


Bio-Diesel Generator

Bio-diesel is renewable and clean-burning fuel made from plant materials. It can be produced on demand, while producing less toxic pollutants and greenhouse gases than petroleum diesel. Bio-diesel generators are perfect for residential neighbourhoods where pollution is unwanted.

Pollutants from petrol engines form smog and make thousands of people sick every year. Bio-diesel generators produce less toxic pollutants than other petroleum products. It produces less soot, carbon monoxide, unburned hydrocarbons, and sulphur dioxide. Experts believe that using bio-diesel instead of petroleum diesel can reduce greenhouse gases up to 75%.

The flashpoint for bio-diesel is higher than 150°C whereas the same is about 52°C for petroleum diesel, which makes it less combustible. It is therefore safe to handle, store and transport. Bio-diesel can be used in any diesel generator with little or no modification to the engine or the fuel system.
