Green building considers comprehensive environmental issues such as indoor air-quality and emissions from the manufacture and transport of materials to a jobsite. The goal is a home that uses fewer resources in its construction, consumes less energy for heating and cooling, and has a lower overall impact on the environment. A green home will typically look exactly like a conventionally constructed home that you encounter while exploring Marco Island Florida homes for sale, and there are varying levels of green standards and implementations. Energy efficiency, water management, air-quality and responsibly sourced materials are individually worthwhile efforts in constructing a home – combined they will help certify a home as Green or LEED. A homeowner can choose any and all methods depending on their interests or project budget.
