    An eco-friendly flat is one that depletes the natural resources to the minimum during construction and operation. Happily, it also depletes your income the least.

    An eco-friendly flat is one that depletes the natural resources to the minimum during construction and operation. Happily, it also depletes your income the least. The reason is many for us to go for eco-friendly Flat in Tripunithura . The benefits are both tangible and intangible. Let us talk money. Incidentally it is also green, is the approach that goes down best with clients. While construction material works out to be cheaper, installation of certain equipment cost more initially, but is worth it. The incremental costs can be recovered in 2-3 years. After we recover the costs, it translates into saving. An enterprise provides green solutions for urban living. Healthy and wise, eco-friendly flats are good for the environment, and also for the people staying within as they improve the quality of air inside the house. Environment-friendly, if you are worried about Arctic glaciers melting and blame it all on industries and thermal power stations, think again. With a flat that is eco-friendly, you can ensure that the next generation has that much of more oxygen to breathe and that much of more greenery to feast their eyes on. Having been part of the development sector for over a decade, Seal was always interested in alternate technologies. While the things related to construction and design can be implemented only when a house is being built from scratch, most can be affected even in an existing house. For those who live in an apartment or flat, it has to be a community initiative. It reduces need for lighting. The house needs to be designed in such a way that it receives ambient lighting and does not require artificial lights during the day. The working areas of Seal’s house face the south and receive sufficient light. Use energy efficient lamps and appliances. Try replacing incandescent light by CFL lamps. Light Emitting Diode (LED) lamps are even more energy-efficient. Minimize cooling and heating costs. Wind from the south enters through the entrance on the ground floor, makes its way up through an open courtyard in the center and passes out through vents in the north. This airflow keeps the house cool and airy.
