Why Going Green is the Only Way to Bee
Depending on usage, resources such as water, electricity, and gas have a huge impact on the environment. As it stands, buildings – including homes – account for over 30% of annual global greenhouse gas emissions, according to Architecture 2030. Green homes can help to significantly lower these emissions and come with many other benefits such as:
Even simply switching to LED light bulbs can have an immensely positive impact on the environment. This is because a single LED bulb will consume around 30 times less energy than a single incandescent bulb.
Low-flow fixtures work to cut water consumption significantly. When applied to faucets, showers, and toilets, your home uses up far less water without any detrimental changes to your everyday routine.
Improve Air Quality
Heating and cooling systems make up the bulk of the harmful emissions released into the world – with air conditioning being responsible for nearly 100 million tons of emissions alone. Using geothermal HVAC systems helps to reduce the amount of energy needed to function because heat is being transferred instead of produced, and removing heat from the air uses a lot less energy to cool your home. It also significantly reduces the number of air pollutants caused by traditional HVAC systems.
