With the increasing environmental concerns, residents of metro cities are not hesitant to spend a little extra to own a green and eco-friendly home today. Those who already have a lavish home are also looking for avenues to create an eco-friendly environment at home to pay back to nature and save the Mother Earth.
Here are a few important points to be kept in mind while making a green home:
Apart from all this, maintaining such a house is also very important to keep it efficient and sustainable so that it does not lose its promising green qualities, for instance, Solar Panels used for generating electricity should be wiped every week to remove the dust collecting on it as it reduces the efficiency of the panel to generate sufficient electricity. The rainwater harvesting collection tank should be checked to see if all the layers are correctly laid and the dirt (if any) should be removed from time to time.
Sewage treatment plants (STP) also need regular checks. The septic tank should be cleaned and the chemicals that need to be added should be added regularly without fail.
Other minor requirements would be regular cleaning of the white tiles/mosaic on the roof. Double glazing, if installed, should be checked to make sure there are no leakages.
All these small efforts contribute a lot towards creating an efficient green home and require just a little bit of attention. The country is moving towards a developed status so a conscious effort is required from each of us. Just like the dynamic technological developments we see each day, environmental concerns also need to be addressed with the same importance and efforts.
