Woodcastle Homes are committed to being the premier choice of green home builders in Toronto by making sure that we have all the latest cutting edge technology available at our fingertips so that we can not only help you, but also help the planet. Being green is a very important consideration to all of us these days; indeed it is the responsibility of everyone living on this planet to make sure that we take care of it in the best way possible. To that end, we at Woodcastle Homes pride ourselves on our energy efficiency.
Building energy efficient homes is the best way to help save our energy and resources. It is also the responsibility of the green home builder in Toronto to help the client who purchases the property to save money on heating costs etc. Using solar energy is one excellent way of doing this. Solar power is one of the cleanest and most renewable sources of energy available to us these days and therefore solar panels make an ideal component if incorporated into the design of your energy efficient home build.
Maybe you already live in a property which you love and would like to make some green renovations to it instead of purchasing a new property? Woodcastle Homes specialise in green renovations in Toronto and can help you to make your home a far more energy efficient one by showing you ways in which green renovations can improve your current living area.
Kitchens are a prime area where energy efficiency could be improved and therefore green kitchen renovations could make a huge difference to your annual bills. Older kitchens can be draughty places due to inefficient insulation, but can also get very steamed up due to the effects of poor ventilation. So how do you improve energy efficiency in your kitchen? Well, we can all do our bit by making sure that we use our energy efficiently by only boiling a kettle containing enough water for our needs for example. Many people fill a kettle before boiling despite the fact that they only need enough to make a cup of coffee. Another way you can improve your energy efficiency would be to use the most energy efficient white goods. This can have a huge impact on your co2 footprint.
Green kitchen renovations could also improve the amount of electricity you use by making sure that you have complete insulation included and also adequate ventilation installed. This cuts down on condensation which can ruin interior windows and also allows you to use less heating.
