Natural Heritage

Natural Heritage
Preserving the natural patrimony is the most inexpensive and efficient environmental economics. The term natural heritage derives from the French "patrimoine naturel", the totality of natural assets, including those of historical, cultural or scenic beauty. It give us understanding the importance of natural environment: where we came from, what we do and how we will be. Our lives are connected to the landscapes of our daily lives, as well as we keep the memories of places we went. The destruction of these landscapes cause irreversible environmental damage, and are an insult to our memory, causing loss of quality of life.

Zero Net Energy Home: The Deepest Shade of Green.

Zero Net Energy Home (ZNEH)
A zero Net Energy Home is a home which, over the course of a year, will produce at least as much energy as it uses. A ZNEH can generate energy via a variety of sources. The Yannell House’s energy systems include solar voltaic panels to generate electricity, solar-thermal water and space heating, geo-thermal heating and cooling, and passive solar heating. The house’s superior thermal envelope, a central Zero Net Energy principle, minimizes the heating and cooling requirements of the home.

Why Building Green?
Building Green is more than specifying solar panels. Building green
*  Minimizes adverse effects on local, regional, and global ecosystems.
*  Reduces reliance on automobiles.
*  Promotes energy efficiency and minimizes the use of fossil fuels.
*  Ensures that both structures and grounds are designed to conserve water.
*  Uses low environmental impact construction materials.
*  Is durable and can be maintained with minimal environmental impact.
*  Is comfortable, safe, and healthy for the occupants.
