Behind The Scenes Of An Energy-efficient Home


WHAT IS ENERGY-EFFICIENT HOME?
Energy-efficient homes reduce unnecessary energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions and demands for non-renewable resources. they simultaneously provide healthier living conditions and offer homeowners significant money savings over conventional homes.

WHY WE SHOULD CHOOSE ENERGY-EFFICIENT HOME?

Protect your vision
Energy-efficient homes are provided with efficient lighting systems. This will not only help reduce your energy bills but are also better for your vision and health. Efficient lighting systems do not contain mercury, and are hence safer for the household. They also produce less heat than conventional lights, make your home more comfortable and durable.

Save energy cost
According to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), by using less energy for cooling and lighting and choosing 5-star energy-efficient appliances, a home can deliver 20% savings on annual utility bills. Over the seven to eight years that a typical family lives in an energy-efficient home, you can save thousands of dollars in maintenance cost. Save your cost and cut your bill by making your home more energy efficient.

Good for investment
An energy-efficient home is future proof. Never cringe at the thought of higher electricity tariffs. If you are buying houses for investment, this is the kind of house that you want to look for as it will probably have a higher resale value. Apart from that, you may find it easier to rent or sell your house by focusing on all the energy-efficient selling points above.

Retrofitting costs more
If you buy a non-energy efficient home and decide to turn it into an energy-efficient home later, you may need to allocate a big budget to retrofit your house. Plus, the features will be limited to what the house can be adapted to. You definitely can’t change the orientation and if it is built using bricks that absorb heat, you can’t do anything about it except spend more on insulation.

Better Thermal Comfort
An energy-efficient home often has a lower indoor temperature compared with a conventional one. This is because it is constructed with materials that make it more difficult for heat to get in. Autoclave aerated concrete bricks, roof and wall insulation materials, and reflective paint, among others, can protect your home from the heat and keep the indoor temperature more comfortable.

Environmentally friendly
The more energy we consume, the more emissions that harm our environment are produced. Obviously, if you live in an energy-efficient home you will consume less energy. This benefits the environment as your house indirectly releases less carbon emissions that contribute towards pollution and climate change.
The Building Sector Energy Efficiency Project (BSEEP) is a national project implemented by the Public Works Department, administrated by the United Nations Development Programme and funded by the Global Environment Facility. The big picture of the project is to fight climate change by reducing the annual growth rate of GHG emissions from Malaysia’s building sector.
What we earn is not important but what we save is important. Save the Earth!

  3. I just read some articles from local architecture lecturer saying that the design of the house itself will lead to how energy efficient our house will be. Will it lead to high consumption energy (like installing air conditioning is neccessary or not)...maybe next time u can share with us bout it๐Ÿ˜

  15. Rumah memang penting, tetapi di Malaysia ni kebanyakannya tidak mempunyai konsep energy saving. Even green house konsep pun hanya ada di lokasi orang berada. But yet, untuk rakyat marhaen why tak banyak pemaju buat rumah energy saving? Boleh jimatkan kos dan membantu rakyat berjimat. After all, hanya duit yang pemaju fikir. Sepatutnya sebelum kerajaan luluskan sebarang projek perumahan, wujudkan special team untuk cek segalanya. Lakaran rumah, struktur, pendawaian, saluran air, sekuriti, energy saving, pengudaraan dan selepas itu t&c untuk projek rumah utk dapatkan CF. Ini kerana banyak rumah tiada CF. So, akak rasa. Elok kita beli tanah sendiri dan plan sendiri. Supaya duit yang kita labur tidak lebur. Hehehe.

  16. Save energy. Ika akan round satu rumah every 3 hours untuk check which family member yang membazir penggunaan electrik. Boleh la kurang kan kos electricity secara manual.
