Using Solar Pool Panels

Using the sun’s natural energy to heat your swimming pool with solar pool panels is not only environmentally friendly way but will also be highly cost effective over a period of time. When using solar energy to heat water for a domestic use, you want to heat a small amount of water to very high temperatures; whereas with solar pool panels you’ll want to raise the temperature of a large volume of water by just a few degrees - an ideal use for solar heating panels.

Green Building Materials

When we talk about green building materials, we are not referring to their color, although they can come in many shades of green. No, it has to do with them being what is known as eco-friendly. That is, they are designed to not create a negative impact on the environment.

Lots of people think that green building materials only do things such as conserve energy or are recyclable, or are made from recycled raw material, but that is only a small part of it.

Green building materials also help to reduce maintenance costs over the total life of the structure; they help to improve the health of the people living / using the building, and they also lower the costs you have to bear when making renovations to the building.
