Eco home / green home design is a powerful trend worldwide which has been emerging over the last couple of years, and in 2019 will be more popular than ever. More and more people also in Cyprus are accepting green living as the norm and it is really becoming more convenient and affordable to embrace sustainable design trends in our homes. Let’s have a look at some of the eco-friendly home design trends/ideas.
-Thermal insulation: Wall thermal insulation slows down the flow of heat that travels out of our home during the winter and into our home during the summer. With proper insulation, we can reduce the need for heating and cooling system and make big savings on our monthly energy bills.
-Energy-efficient lighting: LED lighting is the latest modern technology in energy efficient lighting. It uses 85% less energy than incandescent or halogen lighting and can reduce energy bills significantly.
-Solar-powered photovoltaic (PV) panels: They convert the sun’s rays into electricity by exciting electrons in silicon cells using the photons of light. Producing our own power energy protects the environment and saves money again on electricity bills.
-Water-saving appliances and fixture: Water-saving trends include timed sprinklers, water-filtration systems, low-flow toilets, and water-saving showerheads and faucets.
