There are new and exciting things to allow you to build your dream home. The drywall may have been delivered and you may be ready to go. Before hanging the drywall there are some things that need to be done. You will need to add insulation to make sure your home stays cool in the summer months and also keeps the heat in during the cooler months.
Eco-friendly building materials
Once the framing is complete insulation needs to be added. There are a number of eco-friendly building materials including insulation that can be used to make the home more environmentally friendly. Green building products are becoming very common so you can speak to the builder of your home and inform them that you want to use green construction products.
Knauf EcoBatt Insulation is one of the top choices if you are looking to make your home more environmentally friendly. This insulation is made mostly of sand.

As an added bonus it will help reduce sound transmission from room to room and keep outside noise from ruining your night. This insulation also does not grow mold or microbes of any form. This insulation will help save you money and is better for the environment. It will also help keep your family safer and healthier.
There are some other products that are great to use in the home. Low E Performance Glass is now being used in many newly constructed homes. The Low E in the product name stands for low emissions. The microscopic layers are coated with the Low E material which is made of compressed metal and this helps keep the heat on the same side of the glass where it began thus keeping heat inside your home. During the summer months, the heat will be blocked out of the home. There is already enough money being spent in and around the house, so heating and cooling should not be one of them.
