Environmentally Friendly

To protect the health of homeowners, Chilin Building utilizes low or zero VOC emitting building materials in its manufacturing process. All building materials meet emission class E1 and have passed formaldehyde emission testing to the European standard EN 717-1 and meet the stringent emission standards of the California Air Resources Board (CARB).

Energy-saving Design

Energy-saving design is an important environmental protection measure, which we usually realize through two aspects.

Firstly, we can optimize the layout of a house through careful design. This includes the rational setting of windows to make full use of natural light, thereby reducing reliance on artificial lighting. At the same time, we can also consider the location and size of windows so as to utilize wind flow for natural cooling, which can reduce the use of air-conditioning. In addition, optimizing the layout of ventilation ducts can improve ventilation efficiency, thereby reducing heat loss. All these strategies can help us reduce energy consumption and save electricity costs.

Secondly, we can choose building materials with excellent thermal insulation performance. For example, vacuum LOW-E glass and thermal insulation coatings can effectively reduce the energy loss of indoor heat. In addition, the proper use of rock wool can also improve the thermal insulation performance of the building. Rock wool is an excellent thermal insulation material that can effectively stop heat loss and also has good environmental performance. The use of these materials can further reduce our energy consumption.

Eco-friendly Materials

In our past projects, we have frequently utilized the following eco-friendly materials:

  • Low-VOC Paint: Low-VOC paints, with reduced volatile organic compounds, are advantageous for minimizing indoor air pollution, promoting human health, and being environmentally friendly.
  • Gypsum Board: Gypsum boards are lightweight, high-strength, easily workable, fire-resistant, soundproof, and heat-insulating construction materials, ideal for interior walls, partitions, and ceilings. Their use improves construction efficiency, reduces waste, and lowers overall building costs.
  • LED Lights: LED lights are more energy-efficient, longer-lasting, and provide better illumination compared to traditional bulbs. Their use contributes to reduced power consumption, lower carbon emissions, and enhanced indoor lighting quality.
  • Recyclable Steel as Wood Substitute: Opting for recyclable steel instead of wood offers higher strength, durability, and resistance to pests and decay. It helps minimize deforestation, thereby safeguarding the environment. Additionally, steel’s recyclability further lessens its environmental impact.

Renewable Energy

With the rising awareness of environmental protection, more and more people are turning their attention to green homes to reduce energy consumption. We highly recommend incorporating solar panels into your housing plans as their use is becoming increasingly widespread. Solar panels not only provide electricity to the house, reducing energy expenses, but also enhance the property’s value. Embracing solar power aligns with eco-conscious living while reaping long-term benefits for both homeowners and the environment.
