Green is not black and white
Families want to know that the home they live in is not only functional and beautiful, but beneficial to their health and the environment as well. It's no wonder awareness of green products has exploded over the last decade - people want to live sustainably, minimizing their impact on the environment and themselves. Wheather you are doing a small remodel or building a new home, South Bay Green can help you at every step along the way.
We are stewards for our families as well as the planet, and your children and pets are the most sacred. This makes your home the most important investment you make, not only financially but for the well-being of your family. We focus on recycled and non-toxic materials and finishes - engineered, designed and built using pre and post consumer recycled materials for tile and counter tops - sustainably harvested wood, cork, bamboo - wool carpeting - cellulose based wall coverings and so much more.
The air you breathe indoors is often ten times more toxic than what you inhale outside. The homes we build promote a non-toxic environment, from three stage HVAC filtration systems with dehumidification; to formaldehyde and fiberglass free recycled cotton and cellulose insulation; the use of low and/or no-VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) paints, stains and finishes.
Wouldn't it be nice to save money on your utility bills while harnessing natural resources to help power your lifestyle? Solar Panels can reduce hugely your electricity bills; insulation, windows and natural cooling towers keep you cool in the summer and toasty warm in the winter; tankless water heaters demand pumps reduce gas consumption; LED lighting will reduce lighting energy loads by up to 75% and the bulbs can last 20 years or longer.
California is in a perpetual state of drought, there is a huge cost to the lifecycle of water generation and use. Home greywater systems, on demand hot water, low flow toilets and aerators, drip irrigation and drought-tolerant non-invasive landscaping all contribute to water savings, which saves you money and keeps more treated water out of the oceans.
