People are more and more reevaluating their homes and their environmental impact, whether they want to reduce their carbon footprint, or simply lead a healthier lifestyle. In the end, there’s never been a greater demand for eco sustainable homes. And it’s not only about solar panels on roofs or double-pane windows. There are numerous new ways to make your house more eco-friendly and modern home builders are making it easier than ever before to build green.

From prefabricated designs that use efficient insulation to premium triple-pane windows. Many companies are designing and building green homes from scratch. For instance, eco-friendly houses built by EcoCraft are custom-designed to meet the homeowners’ aesthetic and use resource-efficient construction methods that cut the amount of waste to 5 percent — a vast improvement over traditional residential construction.

These green homes are built with energy-efficient appliances, and a superior insulation, to reduce the amount of energy used by homeowners. Some are based on passive strategies, such as the orientation of the home on the property as well as the type and size of windows or solar options.

Other eco-friendly features home buyers are looking for include electric vehicle charging stations and tankless water heaters as well as intelligent HVAC systems that monitor and optimize the use of energy. Another feature that is commonly used is natural cleaning products that help keep toxins out of the air, and also out of water supplies and off skin. Green homes are becoming more popular because there are so many options.
