Zero Energy Building Design and Build | Off-the-Grid House

A Zero Energy Building is a building that consumes zero net energy throughout the years it operates. The idea of this zero energy building is not totally taking the building off from the power grid or installing a lot of solar panels as the power source but instead, it focuses more on reducing the energy consumption of the building and increase its efficiency. On a good day, solar energy will able to generate sufficient energy to power up the building and store the extra energy to a battery system or forward it back to the power grid. Whereas in a bad day, the building will use energy from the power grid to keep the building operates and reaches a total Net energy consumption annually. So from here the solar panel or renewable energy sources is just part of the step and the more crucial one is the design concept and system used. The product systems include thermal wall systems, concrete floor heating, Lightweight EPS concrete, gypsum board ceilings & similar drywall system, double pane Aluminium window and etc. The interior design of a building or is also important as more usage of light and HVAC system will greatly impact your monthly electrical bill. Window & door placing and the amount is also equally important as more opening slots will increase the energy flow between the interior and exterior. Installing a solar panel is always the last step towards a Zero Energy Building design and build as there are many other options of renewable energy these days and if the building itself already consumes more than the solar panel can generate than it is no place for Zero Energy Building to happen. To know more about the concept of Zero Energy Building please consult one of Zero Energy Building specialist Aathaworld for more information.

Thermal Insulation roof and ceiling

An energy-saving concept can start with a low thermal flow roof and ceiling. It is a very common thing to do especially in Malaysia which we have a full year-round of hot and humid weather which will fluctuate building temperature easily. On a broadday light, heat energy will extremely easy transfer from the exterior to the roof inside so placing a Rock wool or polymer layer in between will greatly reduce the heat flow and energy loss. Using a good reflective material such as metal roof or aluminum is also a good choice for the heat to easily reflected. PVC roofing is also a great choice for industrial and factory roof usage since it is very economical and provides semi-transparent lighting to reduce the total light usage of the internal area. For that commercial roofing, the ceiling is a much important thing to focus on to keep the internal thermal flow and reduce energy loss. Using gypsum board and other proven energy board can greatly reduce the usage of air-purifying the system and lesser mold and contamination. To get more info for the roof and ceiling product please refer to your roof and ceiling expert or Aathaworld for more product info.

Lightweight EPS Concrete

Lightweight EPS concrete is another good concept of energy-saving wall and flooring system. Unlike other concrete systems, EPS concrete is greatly focused on our isolating temperature with other rooms or space. The concrete filler is added with EPS that can reduce heat flow and provide sufficient strength for a wall. It is also very good at fire-resistant and very good acoustic insulation to keep the environment sound contain. It is normally manufactured in wall panel form so that it can easily install on-site and reduce the time taken for the concrete to cure. Lightweight EPS concrete is also suitable for placing as the front wall for blocking the sunlight as it is very good at reducing heat flow. Lightweight EPS concrete can be easily cut to any shape and install so there is lesser skill labor require. To know whether your wall partition is suitable to install EPS concrete please consult with one of our EPS concrete specialist Aathaworld to more about the detail and you will be one step nearer to Zero Energy Building.

Lighting, Door and window with Energy Efficient and location wise

Lighting is a very small device but it consumes a lot of energy if it used over. Lighting placing must aim to be functional such as direct lighting on top of a sink or faucet or dining table. The type of lighting must be energy efficient too such as an LED light bulb or other similar lighting products that provides long-range of brightness with minimal electricity required. The door and window must be tightly sealed mechanism to avoid direct temperature flow from internal to external or vice versal. Using a more reflective door and a window will greatly increase a room brightness from the reflective ray such as aluminum frame or glass door and window. Although the effect seems very small throughout the years it really helps save a lot from this tiny equipment. Aathaworld is able to provide you the accessories and lighting that can help you in reducing energy consumption so don't hesitate to submit your inquiry at any time.

Solar panela and other renewable energy sources.

Malaysia is a country that constantly has Sun radiant and humid environment. Using solar panels as the top choice of renewable energy is inevitable. Another wind turbine and diesel energy is also very useful but it has too much of moving parts and maintenance required which make it not so friendly to be own by ordinary household and building. Furthermore, the solar panel is considered to be the most efficient renewable energy source and only requires little maintenance. The cost of implementation is also periodically reduced due to China's massive production and lesser skill worker required to do the installation. To know more about the solar panel benefit chart and annual electric bill deduction please inquire Aathaworld for more of the brochure and product detail.
