WHAT ARE ENERGY EFFICIENT APPLIANCES?
Its estimated that nearly a third of residential energy consumption is wasted. Modern, energy conscious appliances will reduce wasted energy and water consumption.
Choosing the right energy efficient refrigerators, dishwashers, clothes washers, dryers will dramatically reduce daily energy consumption, resulting in smaller carbon footprint. As part of our interior architecture and design services, we provide energy efficient appliance suggestions that fit the needs, aesthetics and budget of your new home. Additionally our team will advise on energy-efficient water heaters, HVAC system, toilet, shower heads, and lighting.
HOW DOES IT EFFECT HOME COSTS?
When your existing appliances are still running fine, it's hard to calculate and justify the costs of a new, more efficient one. However, when designing a new home, the value of choosing energy efficient appliances is simple.
Homeowners that are able and willing to invest in the most efficient appliances see the quickest returns on their investments by significantly reducing their utility bills. Each appliance yields different savings. In some cases there are credits available for homeowners who select highly efficient products. In other cases, the choice to use new products can be a way to invest in the technology and drive the industry forward from the consumer level.
It is valuable to express your sustainability goals to our architecture and interiors teams early on in the process so we can suggest the right products for your new, modern home.
