The expected future trends for the ensuing years will likely involve the concept of sustainable/green homes. This is as a result of the culture increasingly moving towards ideas that will be beneficial for the environment. A general shift in thinking is likely to sweep the UK with the current generation of new homes, trying to integrate certain ‘greener’ systems.
The likely pattern will involve areas such as; solar systems, lower carbon emissions omitted from houses and reducing the general environmental impacts. However, achieving this aim may be difficult, within the UK at least. That is, Britain has the oldest housing stock in Europe, resulting in the advent of new homes to be delayed and stagnated. The initial aim is to reduce carbon emissions from our homes by 80% by 2050.
And the higher authorities certainly have rested on their laurels. Instead, they seem to be taking a process that will follow a simplistic stage route, starting of small, then eventually cascading to consequently deliver their aims. The fully acknowledge that it is difficult, but their motivations are focussed mainly due to their fear that if actions are not taken, the problem may get worse, sooner.
However, there are plans from the Department of Energy and Climate Change among others to ensure that funding is made available. Otherwise their fear of eventual global warming may be nearer than first anticipated.
To affect these opinions, certain practices such as; applying spray-on insulation foam, that acts as a stronger alternative to be previous foam insulators.
This is only the start. But eventually, it will lead to more effectual process such as solar panels. Although these are expensive, plans are being made to ensure that they are integrated into the make up of newly built homes.
There progressive approach will likely cumulate in the advent of widespread solar panels. Granted, these are expensive. The authorities acknowledge this, and therefore, will view this as a longer term objective. But in any case, they realistically view their integration by installing new homes with this system; thus limiting perceived costs for the home owner, simply due to it being part of their mortgage.
In retrospect, the key is certainly to apply patience. Market improvements are expected to occur sooner rather than later. And when they do, these thoughts can be progressively put into action
