Reducing the energy costs of a house or a building is an objective to which we should aspire. Everything starts from the construction and continues with the purchase decision: materials, cover, orientation ... Vertical gardens and landscaped roofs are fashionable concepts. But beyond the simple terms, there is a reality: they have Environmental benefits.
Will it be the trend in residential buildings? A simple green enclosure, for example, would mean a significant saving for the owners' pockets. Less heating and air conditioning.
Aspects that help reduce energy costs
From the thermal point of view, a Roof garden Helps to improve insulation. During the summer it reduces the temperature of the slab that would later be transmitted to the house. And in winter it works as an insulator, reducing energy losses from the interior to the exterior.
Added to this is a longer duration and less maintenance. Experts say that a landscaped roof can even last three times longer than a traditional roof. This is because it is less exposed to inclement weather.
Another point that affects energy expenditure is the Housing orientation. It can be an energy and economic saving. And lastly, let's not forget the Insulation of windows or doors, another factor that influences in a very important way in the pockets.
All these points, which have an impact on energy savings, have been developed in our collaboration on the Invertia portal.
