Smart Eco Homes

A smart eco home is one which is designed to minimize its environmental impact through its lifetime. This includes the process of building and material selection. 

Such smart eco homes also have a low ongoing energy requirement for heating and cooling due to the usage of energy efficient design techniques such as Passive Solar. The 'smart' part comes from combining this with controlled technical components of the building, such as a solar panels, solar hot water heating and controlled operation of services in the house to reduce energy consumption whilst maintaining a comfortable living environment.
