As global warming becomes an ever-increasing emergency, Construction Industry Predictions identify current and upcoming solutions in new residential and commercial building practices. Here are a few ways to help save money – and the planet – in combatting increasing temperatures when designing a new space.
There’s no need to rely on a manual thermostat in your home or office. Programmable thermostats allow you to set the temperature of your space according to the time of day or day of the week, or according to daily changes in weather. These thermostats are accessible via phone as well, so you can maintain the correct energy consumption even while away.
With so much free energy radiating down from the sun, it only makes sense to capture as much as you can for your home or office use. Construction industry predictions point to rapid growth in adoption of new technologies for harnessing this power, including new concepts such as photovoltaic roofing tiles, windows, and housepaint.
That fluffy pink fiberglass insulation in your attic will not be used in buildings in the near future, according to construction industry predictions. Far more energy-efficient materials such as closed-cell spray foam, foam board, and cellulose.
Start saving money and energy – and have the most up-to-date building in the neighborhood – by employing these technologies in your new construction.
