What makes a home eco-friendly?
There are so many factors which make up the eco part of an eco-home. Sustainability is one, but what does that mean?
Providing renewable energy is part of having a sustainable home. The design of the building itself can help to keep heat inside, or prevent the cold from getting in, which in turn requires less energy to heat. Older buildings weren’t built with these issues as a priority, as the environment wasn’t at the forefront of people’s concerns, the way it is today.
