Much has been those spoken and have probably heard of campaigns Pro saving the planet, or the famous phrase “Planet Green” or what is the same green planet, in our case we will deal with calls green homes, i.e. are constructed taking into account certain factors in traditional buildings are not taken into consideration, such as materials, supplies energy saving, building location etc..
First you have to take into consideration the legal aspects of the place where the property is located, and see if there are faults, groundwater etc., These are aspects that ultimately may be causing damage to the building.
The orientation of the house is also an important factor to consider, this orientation is related to the sun, the water, if sunlight enters the house is one way to save energy, and so if the house has large windows where sunlight can get would be great.
Everyday pollution in large cities grows, the planet seems to not take any more, if we add to that the noise pollution of the big cities and how this affects us, it would be time to start thinking about making buildings designed to save energy and leverage we have. This implies a big change patterns, personally, culturally, is to understand how certain materials can replace other more natural.
Spain is perhaps the country that currently has a large number of buildings of this type, given the weather conditions allow it, it is only in Germany where the climatic conditions are strong, it is the country with the largest number of these constructs.
The houses called ecological, presented in its external natural materials, which usually cover the front of the house, such as ceramics, wood, adobe, stone, brick, concrete, aluminum. If the water to save energy and heating is to be controlled in their use, for example there are special devices that are installed in piping to control unnecessary spending?
Electricity is controlled not using PVC cables, as they are very toxic when any fire, the house paint is recommended that it is made with natural ingredients, recommended that do not contain silicate, as they are safer and can be washed.
The idea with this type of construction is to create buildings that remain and a high energy saving, they are easy to maintain, as with the buildings in the past whose maintenance cost was low, because they were using energy sources which in part were natural, such as gas, firewood. It seeks above all to mix the modern with the conventional, but always in Pro comfort of people
Are housing designed in addition to meeting minimum living conditions with minimal power consumption, is intelligent, healthy and self-regulating, where the use of natural sources is the first thing to take into account also that significantly will reduce costs construction, since the use of recycled materials permits.
