April 18, 2020

Aathaworld is your self sustaining home contractor in Malaysia who can carry out design and build for you, from self-sustainable energy to highly secured building. It is important to have at least some sort of features of any house to have self-sustaining, due to the unforeseen factors and risks that happen with a closely integrated world. For instance, coronavirus or COVID-19 health crisis that happens all around the world starting from the end of year 2019. This virus has already affected every country, every village and corner to household regardless of religion, race, wealth status, reputation, gender to age. Therefore, it is essential to consider the inclusion of self-sustainable and self-sufficient home features in order to safeguard your own and family members when necessary. Self sustaining home contractor Malaysia is able to advise based on the budget, ideal design, location and preference of owner and family. Examples of those features that can be included into the architectural design for the home, consisting of rainwater collection, solar panel installation, low energy consumption, natural burning stove, recycled material reusable system, outdoor composting box, fruit and vegetable garden cultivation. Hence, the homeowner can theoretically live on their own without going out to the cities during crisis and at the same time do not affect much of the lifestyle.

Epidemics are the first factor that might affect everyone in the world, because every country will lock down the in-and-out of the country, city to village. Especially those diseases that can be spreaded so easily such as the SARS and COVID-19 those recent decades’ illness that severely bring all human beings in trouble. Self sustaining home contractor in Malaysia has experiences in these and know the consequences in addition to the period when the epidemic is wide spreading and so fast among all the people when they get closer together. The severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) outbreak in the year of 2003 has caused a dramatic impact to the personal, economy, financial, country and globally, especially South East Asia (SEA). Furthermore, the worst has overtaken this epidemic disease, which is coronavirus disease that is believed to have derived from bats originally (from several sources, but still disputable on the root cause). It also makes working from home a higher growth trend in the near future too, at least after the extinction of this global disease. Self sustaining home contractor Malaysia is also able to support this market segment in which design and build self-sustainable offices that utilizes most of the natural energy sources, from rainwater, sunlight, ventilation from physical wind. 

Rainwater Collection & Solar Panel Installation

These two are the basic and key to self sustainable home because these free sources are always available for most corners of the globe. Using natural harvested rainwater to fill up the water tank in the building is very environmentally-friendly in addition to assisting with the water bill savings. Water tanks can be made by PE, steel, concrete, fibreglass etc. Self sustaining home contractor in Malaysia will make sure the proper design can be done to collect the most water from raining time, while not affecting the aesthetic outlook of the building. Rainwater harvesting system is also known as a catchment system of rainwater, the simplest description of the whole system will consist of purification setup, tank, pump and pipes. The water is usually non-potable, can be utilized for toilet flushing, car washing, gardening, clothes cleaning as well as convertible to drinkable water for humans too after purification is being done. It will be extremely useful during the dry season or when days of maintenance activities carried out by water authority on the city-centralized water supply system.  Self sustaining home contractor Malaysia claims more and more people will invest in this technology where water will become more scarce and the overpopulated area will face the supply issue during peak usage time in a day. A well designed rainwater harvesting system will have few points to be looked, such as insect-proof from wet system and blockage of debris to the pipes-to-tank. In dry systems, natural water flows will happen where non-pressurized design will be built. It would mean no water will stay stagnant and all will be directed to the water storage tank when raining happens. While a wet system will require a pressurized setup to be installed, either the pipe is channelling the water from underground to the tank located above the ground or there are some distances between the water collection point to the end storage area. A good self sustaining home contractor in Malaysia will ensure the filtering system can be always there to eliminate unnecessary elements in the water content, for the sake of quality, avoidance of mosquito, dirts and other pollutants.

Then a solar panel system will need to be installed for the household to cater for the energy consumption required by the family members. Before placing an appropriate solar system to support the whole household electricity usage, a deep study of historical electricity bills must be done with proper allowance done for consumption tolerance. Solar system designers will need to draft out the system size according to the energy needs by the households, to support TV, aircond, washing machine, electronic appliances, cooking device, refrigerator, fan, air purifier, laptop, phone charging to lighting. Self sustaining home contractor Malaysia will then engage with solar equipment manufacturers such as those producing racking, inverter, solar panel, batteries for their best quality supplies. Installation of the mounting system for the panel will normally be done by the contractor themselves or sub-contract to the specialist. Moreover, connecting of solar panels with installation of inverters will need to be completed for the last but not least. Additionally, a green roof will be built either together with the insulation for sound, heat to achieve lower temperature and higher privacy for the overall house; or making the vegetable farming garden on top of the roof too. Self sustaining home contractor in Malaysia suggests to do a green roof by having some plants on top of it because those plants will absorb the UV while also utilizing the rainwater, cooling down the heat energy emitted by the sunlight while producing more oxygen (at the same time, consuming more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere). Solar panel systems can be coupled with the system or can be standalone design, depending on the overall theme of the building set by the architect appointed separately or using the teammates in the contractor’s team (usually they will have their core team). More to the points, outdoor compositing box, recyclable waste or rubbish system with proper categorization (or reuse as natural fertilizer) will also be installed as overall sustainable home design for the owner.
