Green building is the practice of increasing the efficiency with which buildings use resources like energy, water, and materials while reducing impact on the environment and human health through efficient design, construction, operation, and continued maintenance.
According to the EPA, as of 2006, buildings accounted for 40% of total national energy consumption, 12.2% of national water consumption, and generated 38% of our CO2.These numbers leave no doubt that reducing resource consumption and pollution generated by buildings is crucial for future sustainability.
Green building brings together a vast array of practices and techniques to reduce and eliminate the impacts of buildings on human health and the environment. By taking advantage of renewable resources like day light harvesting and the use of rainwater collection systems, Inergy Solutions identifies your property’s specific needs in becoming sustainable and offers an array of solutions such as:
• Solar & Wind Power Systems
• Ultra-efficient lighting including CFL, LED, & Induction
• Photoluminescent Emergency Signs
• Efficient Insulation techniques
• Water efficient toilets and faucets
• Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning Systems
Effective green buildings are much more than just a random collection of environmentally friendly technologies and require careful and detailed attention to the impacts of the resources embodied in the building's complete life cycle.
Using renewable, natural, and pollution free resources such as the sun and wind benefits not only the environment, but your pockets. Through the use of solar electric (PV), solar hot water (thermal), or wind energy systems, your company can save money by purchasing less energy from utilities, offset high demand charges during peak rates, decrease overall pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, and effectively build public support by cultivating your company’s image as a leader in environmental conservation. In addition, Inergy Solutions’ will manage the process of securing all federal, state, and local incentives available for your project.
Savings: Energy efficient buildings can save up to 50% off annual energy costs and as energy prices continue to rise, your new building’s system will save even more money.
Awareness: An energy audit takes the guesswork out of a building’s energy improvements by identifying previously unseen problems and providing sensible solutions with the greatest payback.
Air Quality: Improving airflow throughout the building will cut down on moisture, mold, and carbon monoxide that cause an unhealthy work environment.
