Top 10 Trends In 2014 For Fort Worth Homes

Spring is a season of change and new beginnings. Whether it’s a change in wardrobe, spring cleaning, or making some improvements to your home, spring is the perfect  time to make those changes for a better you this 2014.

Are you looking for ways to improve your Fort Worth home? Whether you are planning to buy a new home or spruce up your existing Fort Worth home for sale, make sure you don’t miss these top 10 architectural trends in 2014:

Architectural Trend #1: Passive Architecture

Passive homes have been a huge trend in Europe for 5 years now. In 2014, the concept of passive homes is going global.

A passive home is one that works with the climate for the interior’s heating and cooling, relying on more natural methods rather than external technology. A passive home can save up to 90% of heating costs.

Here are some of the features of passive homes:

  • Windows are positioned to maximize sunlight and warmth

  • Use of overhangs to keep rooms cool in summer

  • Using airtight thermal envelopes to insulate homes and maximize heating from standard appliances

  • Double and triple glazing for a more peaceful and quiet interior

  • Energy-gathering technology like PV panels, solar hot water, and ground-source heat pumps

 

More passive homes means more greener homes that consume less energy and less carbon emissions. If more homeowners have access to passive homes, this will have a huge impact in changing the world and our children’s future for the better.

Happy Trails,

Donnie
