Solar heating systems, sustainable resources, it would be wonderful but how can you???
Here are some points you should take into consideration:
- If you have a stone floor you won't need air-con because the stone absorbs the heat during the day and releases it during the night.
- Use locally sourced products where possible as it saves transportation.
- Try to avoid cement because even though it soaks up carbon from the atmosphere it releases more carbon when it is being made than it will ever soak up.
