Not building green? Some people buy into the misconception that high-performance buildings cost more money to construct. Others misunderstand the disconnect between capital costs and operating costs. However, by understanding “value,” and making smart judgments, the cost difference between conventional buildings and green buildings can be nominal; even cost next to nothing to implement.
Today, it seems that everyone is talking about “going green” when it comes to home construction, but not everyone knows what it means to be truly eco-friendly. Often seen as a costly, complicated home building solution, the current advantages of green building design are at an all-time high.
While “going green” may be trending lately, it’s more than just a buzzword. Green building initiatives that encourage builders to be eco-friendly and energy efficient are cropping up everywhere, and home buyers are eager to cash in on the cost savings that a green home can provide.
