06 Mar Reducing Your Carbon Footprint to Maximize Your Space
Have you ever taken the time to think about your impact on Mother Nature? Even on a day-to-day basis, we each have our own role to play within the environment we all share. Climate change is a hot topic these days, and many people are looking to live more eco-friendly and reduce their carbon footprint in 2020.
Living sustainably begins at the foundation of it all: your home. You might think that you’ll need to sacrifice space in order to have an eco-friendly home, but this isn’t necessarily the case. With Bella Homes eco-luxury properties, you can maximize space and reduce your carbon footprint at the same time.
DESIGNED FOR FLORIDA’S CLIMATE
Our homes are designed and built with Florida’s unique climate in mind. Florida homes require insulation that will hold in air conditioning and keep out humidity. All Bella Homes utilize spray foam insulation, an advanced form of insulation that better protects against moisture and humid air. This reduces the strain on your air conditioning unit, leading to less energy consumption year-round.
SOLAR ENERGY IN SUNNY FLORIDA
Aside from a brief rainy season during the summer months, Florida’s skies generally stay clear and bright with sunshine. Our homes make the most of that sun by implementing solar energy into our properties. Solar energy is a renewable energy source that produces no greenhouses gases, unlike coal or natural gas. With so much sunlight at our fingertips, we design our homes to be spacious – because the available energy needed to cool that space is infinite.
We don’t label Bella Homes as eco-friendly because it sounds good – we take our membership in the Florida Green Building Coalition very seriously. This means that a third party inspects each of our properties, ensuring they were built to green standards and are energy efficient. Building green is at the forefront of our minds before we even break ground on a new property, so you can be sure that your new home has maximized every aspect of sustainable living.
Simply choosing to live in a Bella Homes’ property will reduce your carbon footprint – without sacrificing space, luxury, or time out of your day.
