Homes of the Future

The past, the present, and beyond: What will we do?

Solarspray 🔆

Solarspray is a fairly recent invention which is both cost and fuel affective. This spray transforms the sun's rays into watts which can be used as energy to power various things in a home, such as running water. The solar spray is applied to a window, and it is transparent. A person is able to help their environment and save money on energy costs, while keeping the appearance of their home modern and clean.

Science City's Heating System ♨

Science City Campus' innovative heating system stores heat from the summer months. Once winter arrives, the heat is released to heat the home the system is connected to. This creates a method of heating homes which is not dependent on oil, natural gas, or electricity, ultimately saving energy.

Home Insulation

Nature Approved Materials

The cost effective and environmentally friendly home insulation materials consist of:

  • Cellulose
  • Cotton
  • Fiberglass
  • Polystyrene Foam
  • Mineral, stag, and rock wool
Cellulose is made from 75% recycled content, and it doesn't affect the air quality in a home. Cotton, fiberglass, foams, and wool also do not affect the air quality in a home. These materials are more eco- friendly versus other materials, and they don't hurt the house or air in any way.

Wool has no added flame resistors which often employ chemicals that are harmful to the environment, unlike many common home insulation materials.

Going Vegetarian 🐮

Raising cows for meat uses up a copious amount of the world's energy in the combination of water, plants, and the gasses to process and ship the meat. In the future, people would rely on a diet consisting mainly of organic plants and a moderate amount of poultry, since producing beef takes up 13x as much energy as producing poultry and 56x more energy than growing potatoes.

Another way of energy-saving agriculture is a rain garden. Rain gardens store up to 30% more rainwater than a regular garden, which allows the reduction of erosion and the ability to take in harmful chemicals.

Clothing Management

Clothes dyers use up to 6% of a household's total energy. By hang drying, the sun naturally bleaches clothed and can fade or even remove stains. This reduces the total chemicals used to wash and dry clothes while using less energy to dry them.
