What is energy-sufficient housing?

Energy sufficient housing is the new trend to protect the world from the upcoming global warming phenomenon. This housing is sometimes called ‘smart house’ for this kind of housing has a lot of advantages with so many intteligent tricks to save energy. The purpose of this kind of housing is to surpress the energy used by fossil fuels that are decreasing in amount years by years as the time goes by and we’re close to the end of fossil fuels. Therefore, we need to save energy. Besides, energy efficient housing is believed to be a great contribution towards green act as it is an eco friendly house that mostly works with nature, or using nature as the energy power supply such as lighting and heating.

Energy efficient housing is probably, in major, consists of features such as design with compability with the climate, solar heating system, energy efficient construction, and even solar electric system. These natural power resources enable the energy efficient owners to save expense of energy cost where approximately in one year standard family wastes at about three thousands killowatt-hours energy year round. Some big companies such as Philips also have already contributed in this green movement by creating some green technologies or contributing in the making of green design. Some technologies used in energy efficient housing are probably common and familiar for you such as solar PV panels and wind turbines to generate electricity. Some may also use concentrator on the rooftops. Sometimes energy efficient house also includes sensor detector that is working to turn on and off the light and other energy supply when people are not around when it is needed.

Some technologies can be more advanced, such as phase changing materials that can control the wave of temperature in buildings. This material is embedded on the walls and will ‘melt’ to secure heat and will solidify when the room needed to be heated up, releasing the stored heat within. Organic LED lights are also starting to be manufactured where it is believed to be able to save more energy. Other common solution for less energy lamps are produced by Philips in form of low wattage lamp bulbs—some of these bulbs are even brighter than standard light bulbs!

Green, energy efficient houses are both good for the planet and also good for yourself. Wooden framed housing provides a long lasting house; it has been tested and proved that construction using wood has a great longevity. Before building or buying energy efficient house, it is important to note the climate of your housing region to calculate everything. Consult with the expert and try to surf internet about this. Don’t forget that there are a lot of advantages in energy efficient housing including the stable temperature, controlled humidity, reduced drafts and moisture, and also noise free while the disadvantage such as the possible expensive cost can be manouvered by building prefabricated house. Try something that is not good only for your own, but also for others; that is a green act, that is a green house.
