What is one sustainable house feature?
Sustainable homes use renewable energy sources and reduce energy consumption. They use recycled materials and use less energy in construction. They have features to save water and reduce waste.
Eco-Friendly Materials: Materials used in sustainable house construction that are non-toxic and renewable, such as bamboo, straw bale, and recycled materials. Passive Solar Design: A design of a house that optimizes the amount of heat and light from the sun, using windows, insulation, and other design elements. Energy Efficiency: The ability of a house to use less energy, such as through air-tight construction, energy-efficient appliances, and energy-saving lighting.
