Energy Efficient Bamboo House

Updated: Jun 1, 2021

Different buildings use different levels of energy level in each life cycle stage. Almost half of all resources that cannot be renewed, such as water, energy, and raw materials, are used in construction. Construction has the main effect on the environment in its consumption of energy. Energy-efficient in a house is the extent to which the consumption of energy per square meter of the building's floor area measures up to established energy consumption situated for the specific type of a house under the defined climatic conditions. Energy-efficient homes have many benefits; lower energy costs being the main one. Energy-efficient dwellings are designed to reduce the amount of energy used while maintaining or enhancing the building's quality of services.

With the fast growth of the economy and the most known nations globally, Vietnam experiences a lot of complications of its resources and environment. Vietnam offers a paradigmatic test case for environmental sustainability in the twenty-first century. The chance to make an energy-efficient experimental house in baoxi for Longquan International Bamboo Commune in the environment of the new policies good development of Vietnam is very recent and essential other than challenging and interesting. Some of the issues considered before making an energy-efficient bamboo house were:

· Groundwater cooling, underground water is a very unique element found on site. Easily use underground water to design a cooling system and use toilets where they cannot accept non-drinking water.

· Feng Shui learns and uses the most critical idea of the antique Vietnamese tradition to the house design.

· Modularity and industrialization, to design modular elements to create an innovative industrialized bamboo construction system.

Bamboo is structuralized so that it absorbs the most carbon dioxide during its life cycle; it is ready to be utilized for construction in almost three years and grows much quickly compared to other different types of trees. China is seen as a predominant source of carbon dioxide, the primary global warming emission. The bamboo function in this situation is very current since the site is the forest sea of Zhejiang; therefore, bamboo is a natural resource of BaoxiLongquan. Before constructing an efficient bamboo house, there was an exploration of new ways of building using bamboo as a construction material. Sustainability not only entails the use of natural resources such as bamboo but also entails designing appropriate construction solutions. Therefore, sustainability was approached by;

· Making dry-mounted connections makes bamboo weak through perforating or occupying it with concrete; this also allows the replacement of bamboo poles if required.

· Making the aluminum connections in a light and easy manner to assemble so that the construction can be performed with the local workers.

· Using a bamboo pole with the same length to get standardization and the best quality control.
