building homes

At Exbury Homes Ltd, we are a Hampshire-based company covering a range of housing projects, with our home building service catering to your every need, from the initial planning stages, through to the finishing touches of your dream home. As part of our services, we are able to help those who are looking to develop new build an eco-home in Hampshire and beyond. Today we will focus on five benefits of eco home building, as well as look at what we can offer you.


What is an Eco Home?


Before we look at the benefits of building an eco-home, we will define what we mean by this. As the words ‘eco’ and ‘eco-friendly’ refer to things that seek to avoid harm to the environment, an eco-home aims to encourages a green lifestyle, as the home itself is built in a way that lessens any negative impact on the environment. This can be in terms of the way the home is built, but it can also carry through to the daily running of a home, by using sustainable energy in order to have a positive impact on the environment.


Improve Your Home’s Water and Energy Efficiency


By incorporating the energy efficient systems into your eco-home, you will not only be helping the environment, but by using less water and energy you will also be able to cut down your fuel bills.


Benefit from a Low Maintenance Property


As with our timbre frames, eco-friendly building materials are often more durable and do not require as much maintenance over time. This means that you can enjoy the fresh feel of a newly built home for longer, and you can save money on any pricey repair work. Additionally, the extended lifespan and lack of maintenance work ensures your home will continue to reduce any negative environmental impact.


Create a Healthy Indoor Environment


Avoid the use of harmful substances, and enjoy a healthier indoor environment, free from harmful chemicals, finishes and potential environmental pollutants. This means you and your family will be safer and healthier in your home.


Lower The Carbon Footprint of your Home


By going with an eco-home, reducing the negative impact on the environment, and instead helping to sustain it for future generations, you are therefore lowering the carbon footprint of your home. This means that you will lessen the amount of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere as a result of building your dream home, having a direct impact on the dangers of global warming.


Increase the Value of Your Property


Whilst there are initial costs in building your dream eco-home, you will not only make savings with your bills, but also benefit from a higher property value. As eco-home have increased in popularity over the years, investing in such a property now will set you ahead of time and make your home more attractive to buyers in the future.


Eco Home Building at Exbury Homes


Our eco home builders create structures with eco-friendly timbre that comes a Super E rating. Aside from this, we are able to create bespoke features that make your new home as eco-friendly as you would like, including the use of solar panels, improved insulation, a green roof with grass or sedum, wooden-framed windows and other features using breathable materials. We can also let you into the secret of ‘passivhaus’ (German for ‘passive house’) principles, which refers to a set standard of requirements that includes the use of up to 15 kWh/m2 annually for heating and cooling, up to 60 kWh/m2 each year for primary energy (including heating, hot water and electricity), and Leak air up to 0.6 times the house volume per hour (n50 ≤ 0.6 / hour) at 50 Pa (0.0073 psi).
