Eco-homes can clean toxic air, and save you £££'s

In recent years, buyers have been happy to splash out a little extra money on buying a new home which could save them money in the long term, and move them towards a greener lifestyle. With households contributing to 30% of all carbon emissions, and households wasting billions on inefficient energy, it's no surprise that people are wanting change, and fast.

To keep up with the popularity of these types of homes, especially in London, developers are starting to create and build eco-homes. New build homes in general are up to six times more environmentally friendly than older properties, so creating eco-homes is a real benefit to our environment, especially as there are many that can actually help clean the toxic air around us!

It's not just solar panels and efficient heating that can make a house an eco home. Many new designs will include electric car charging points, triple-glazing, and air-filtration systems, as well as more technical aspects such as biomass boilers! In some cases, you can even find homes with modern technology already fitted as standard, such as Hive heating systems which help monitor your energy use. And it's not all about the inside of the home either, with some developers setting aside land space for allotments and other green areas, as well as planning in the easy use of public transport to their developments.

Not limited to just houses, apartments are really taking off in the eco-circle, creating rooftop gardens, fauna walls that channel toxic air upwards to create a cleaner atmosphere, and communal growing areas.

As new eco-friendly homes become ever-popular, it might be time to start thinking about the impact your homes makes on the environment, and the impact it could make in the future.
