For today’s custom home architect, building a home is about more than just quality of design, materials, and craftsmanship. It’s also about function and being environmentally friendly.
The Benefits of Clean-Design Homes
Clean Design Homes, also known as Green Design Homes, provide a multitude of benefits to both the homeowner and the environment. A Clean Design home is energy efficient, which can significantly lower its ecological footprint. Measuring a home’s ecological footprint has become a leading indicator of the demand that we place on nature and the overall impact on our planet.
Clean-Design Can Avoid Health Problems
Besides energy efficiency, a custom home architect is also concerned about the home’s Indoor Air Quality (IAQ). The idea is to minimize the possibility of respiratory problems, allergies, nausea, skin rashes and headaches that can plague people living with poor IAQ. For example:
- Using non-toxic materials. Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) emissions cause a variety of health problems. Non-toxic building materials put less toxic waste in the air during construction and reduce the homeowner’s exposure to toxic chemicals such as formaldehyde.
- Achieving proper ventilation. When a home isn’t properly sealed, insulated, and ventilated, excess moisture can build up resulting in mold growth. Living with mold is a major cause of respiratory health problems.
