What does ecological building mean?
Ecological building is undoubtedly in trend in times of climate change and steadily rising energy prices. But what exactly does it mean when it comes to “ecological building”? The central idea of ecological building is an optimal cycle between man, the buildings he builds, and the environment. The aim is to create a climate-friendly and energy-efficient home with a healthy living environment by using environmentally friendly and biodegradable building materials and to leave the next generations an intact environment. An important role is played by the proven building material wood. Since it is a naturally occurring and constantly renewable raw material, which has good insulation properties and a moisture-regulating effect, it is suitable as almost no other building material, if you want to build ecologically. Wooden houses therefore offer numerous advantages in terms of ecology and sustainability.
Why build ecologically?
An ecological construction primarily expresses your responsible use of nature. Natural building materials such as solid wood, natural paints and plasters, natural insulation or natural floor coverings whose extraction or use is environmentally friendly, do not pollute nature and can be disposed of in an environmentally friendly way. The construction of eco-houses can be individually tailored to your wishes, so that they are flexible in later use. At the same time, the absence of constructional or toxic substances contributes to an ideal living health. Residual toxins are often the cause of health problems such as malaise, chronic fatigue or allergic reactions. Considering that you probably spend more than half of your life in your home, this point should be given special meaning. By a low energy consumption or an optimal use of energy and heat insulation not least your wallet will be spared. Ecologically building therefore promises an increase in quality of life in all areas and a clear conscience towards one’s own family and the environment.
