What are the main principles of Eco Design?
There’s a lot of new thoughts on Eco design, but the main thing to keep in mind is to keep the basic principals in tact and you’ll have a home which is going to make easier a lot more eco friendly and save you lots of money on costs such as electricity in the process.
The biggest and main principal to consider and keep in mind with your plans is to ensure your living areas are oriented towards a north east direction.
Additionally it’s important to have your verandas facing that area for outdoor living.
The ultimate winner that’s going to give you those savings however is ensuring your plans will allow for cross ventilation.
You will want cross ventilation in areas such as the living areas and the bedrooms.
To do so you will want to utilise the breeze as much as possible by the positioning of your living areas in a north east direction.
Additionally you can help with the cross ventilation by installing ceiling fans and applying proper insulation during the building phase.
