Begin to Uncover the World of “Green Building Science”

Through The Remarkable Online Newspaper – The Green Register

We have recently spoken about the incredible online publication that offers consumers and businesses the chance to learn, communicate, educate, and purchase the latest in products and services that are eco-friendly, nature friendly, and green called, The Green Register.  This is the online magazine that offers the globe a chance to really immerse themselves and their companies into a true and utter world that will allow us all the ability to save our land, trees, sky, atmosphere – you name it!

The Green Register can explain the thought process behind how our environment is the ONLY thing keeping us all alive, people.  Money, big houses, airplanes, sports cars – these are not keeping us alive.  Wealth is so far away from being our lifeline, that it’s actually pushing us down a path that is further away from what we need in order to survive.  The quest for money is also making it abundantly clear that the generations coming up behind us will not be able to live and breathe any CLEAN AIR in this world which is, in fact, a nightmare to behold.

This time around, readers, we are going to begin our in-depth coverage of this truly amazing and intelligent magazine by delving into a very special section of The Green Register which focuses on the subject of Green Building Science – which not enough people know about.  Recently, Consumer Reports made a contribution to The Green Register and their readers, offering information on how to look at old technology and find a way to bring it into the 21st century.

The news covered a huge difficulty that all Americans (and, let’s face it, humans) are experiencing in this day and age – the dreaded utility bill.  With the economy negatively fluctuating on a daily basis, each and every person is worried about how to pay the bills.  And one of the largest expenses, because of the extra ‘odd’ weather and temperature changes we are experiencing, come from our utility bills and the heating and cooling of our homes.  So, of course, not only a money-saving but a huge environmental-saving idea would be doing all that without burning much fuel.  In comes, the home geothermal system, which uses the relatively constant temperature of the earth to heat homes in the winter and cool them in the dead heat of summer.

Geothermal is one of these ‘old technologies’ that has been getting a second look by many companies and consumers as the ultimate search for renewable energy sources continues.  Across the pond, actually, geothermal systems are being widely used, yet the American public has not embraced this idea as of yet.  Why?  Because of the simple fact that they haven’t yet learned about the huge amount of savings they could have.
Briefly…instead of using oil, gas, or electricity for heating and cooling, a geothermal system uses the temperature difference between the ground and the air.  The air temperatures fluctuate throughout the day and seasons, while the “ground” air or surface air stays relatively constant.  So when a heat pump exchanges air through a series of pipes called a ‘loop’ that’s installed in the ground beside your home then, in the winter the pipes have a refrigerant in them that absorbs the heat from the ground and carries it into the home, and this process reverses in the summer.  Systems like this can ALSO heat water, which would see the water heater become a ’dinosaur’ in the technology realm and no longer be needed.  Not only that, but homeowners could also say goodbye to their ‘costly’ furnaces and air conditioners.

Geothermal heating and cooling come with a great many ‘pros’ for homeowners.  As Consumer Reports has stated:  “A heat pump uses between 25 percent and 50 percent less electricity than traditional systems.”  The maintenance costs can be lower, as well, because much of the system is underground and protected from the elements.  Geothermal systems are also mechanically simple, quiet, and can last longer. PLUS – and you want to hear this, people!  YOU can get a 30 percent federal tax credit until at least the year 2016 by putting in a geothermal system.
Are there ‘cons’ to this geothermal magic?  Well, yes, but the pros outweigh and outlast the fact that the installation price of a home geothermal system can be more expensive to install.  BUT even though the initial costs can run a bit higher, federal, state and local tax credits help bring the price down to a manageable level.  There have been reports that the average cost of a new geothermal system is around $14,000, depending on size and location, but the DOE says that, typically, annual energy savings run between 30 and 60 percent.

The Green Register is the phenomenal online news service that brings all of these pieces of data, information, and even provides lists of the ‘best of the best’ when it comes to qualified installers of geothermal systems that exists anywhere in the world.  And not only do they allow businesses a chance to BE a part of their lists and programs, but consumers reap the rewards when it comes to receiving the best information that’s available on the market today simply by reading The Green Register.

I have to share one extremely interesting point, readers.  There are sections regarding Green Building that involve everything from data and analysis, such as the kind above, to actual building projects where people are creating the perfect home that will not only save money, but also save the environment for the generation coming up behind.  At The Green Register you will find an amazing amount of articles about home design, building techniques – even information on things like cob houses, which you will find extremely interesting.  And the thoughts, ideas, and creativity behind projects such as these will literally ‘blow your mind,’ and offer you ideas on what to do for you and your loved ones.

Just to give you an idea that 90 percent of us would never think of, The Green Register has spoken about special building projects like the Cob House.  Cob is an extremely environmentally-friendly natural building material composed of sand, clay, and straw; and it is (most likely) the ONLY home that has stood the test of time and Mother Nature’s extreme elements that are getting worse every year.  Not only are readers offered information on the ‘how-to’ of creating such a solid dwelling, but the historical information is amazing as well.  The Cob building dates back hundreds of years, and cob houses that were built over five hundred years ago in Europe are still inhabited to this day.  These cob structures are monolithic: layers of material melded together to produce one massive structure, which is typically made into forms that can be stacked like bricks. When cob dries, it resembles rock or concrete in its hardness, and with a thick coat of plaster, cob can withstand significant rains, winds, blizzards, and even hurricanes before it starts to (very, very slowly) wear away.  Cob is also capable of capturing and storing large amounts of heat, and the ‘look’ of the cob house is structurally beautiful and extremely pleasing to the eye.  And to save the environment, most materials are “local and organic,” and the building of it requires little to no experience and no heavy machinery.

I know, what sounds like an art project with ‘the kids’ really isn’t.  This is a truly amazing design for a family home and one that will, A) allow your family a place to dwell through any weather, B) look fantastic with curved doorways and rounded walls, and, C) save the environment so that YOUR ‘kids’ can actually breathe clean air and still look at the trees that surround the property in fifty years!

Just this one article that The Green Register provided was truly amazing, and each and every reader can learn a multitude of information on eco-friendly building that could save this world!  All you need to do is head over to The Green Register.

Until Next Time, Everybody!
