The traditional process for house design and construction is based around outdated and inefficient techniques. These are not optimised for environmental sustainability, with a lot of surplus material and labour, as well as potential for poor customer satisfaction in the long run. For both the home buyer and the builder, this means a lot of wasted energy, materials and money.
Balanced Earth Homes believe that the houses we live in can leave less of a mark on our planet. We keep waste to a minimum during the construction process, and the design of the building is optimised to ensure minimal energy is wasted during its life cycle.
In the UK each year, we currently waste around £10 billion worth of energy a year, mostly through poorly managed heating. The average UK household could save hundreds of pounds annually with an efficient heating system, automated lighting and even water collection and recycling. This doesn’t just keep your personal utility bills nice and low, it also lowers the individual strain on the network and ensures you’re not using more of the earth’s resources.
We offer our homes with options for:
Using these features means you’ll be able to generate your own power and harvest your own water, lowering your outgoings and offering some self-sufficiency.
By taking advantage of modern technology you’ll be able to avoid spiralling energy costs, minimise your use of natural resources such as water and gas, move towards self sufficiency and save money too.
The best way for anyone to be environmentally sustainable is by not wasting energy. This includes both in our day to day lives, and in our homes. Our power saving homes are designed to help you achieve that goal of lowering your carbon footprint and thereby your global impact.
