Questions & Answers about Eco-friendly homes

What is an eco or environmentally friendly home?

Environmentally friendly homes have some features in common, they could include for instance:

Why are eco homes better than conventional ones?

Depending on the type of eco home they are cheaper to run; they should use less energy and therefore have lower carbon emissions; they should hold their values longer; they should outlast conventional homes; they are healthier to live in with more daylight and less off-gassing of chemicals in the building fabric, such as VOCs in paint, and formaldehyde in MDF, and better more controlled internal temperatures; they are less harmful to the environment.

Are eco homes more expensive to buy?

Not necessarily. Some have been constructed for less than the cost of a conventional home, some for more, so in general the price should not be substantially different.

Do eco homes hold their resale value?

Yes. The experiences of developers and homeowners suggest that they will.
