This contest is fueled by the following news: Country house. While buying a country house we strive to leave noisy city with its not so favorable ecological surroundings. Long before it is observed that man can develop only in concord with the nature. That's why not surprising is the formidable demand observed nowadays for a quality country house. But we should not forget that suburbs differ within themselves. City dweller enchanted by evanescent impression of river and forest strip by his side may buy not that house which he dreamt of. For example it may happen that behind forest you may find an abandoned chemical warehouse, or the house is made of non eco-friendly materials. In order to avoid those disappointments it is necessary to pay more attention to the ground and the house built on it, which we had chosen for us and our children. Where to build a country house: What are the criteria to be followed by the one who wants to settle down in suburbs? Obviously clean environment of the particular area, but alas, this definition is too vapid. That's why it is worth of appealing to more precise scientific analysis Frankly speaking, situation is Europe is not that good. Vast areas on the map are painted yellow (radiation affected), brown (chemical contamination). These are the areas not fit or not at all fit for dwelling. Now there are many regions in Europe where detailed ecological maps are compiled. They consist of maps for soil covering contaminated with heavy metals, maps for air polluted with industrial waste, geological maps of tectonic disturbances, radon emissions, contamination of ground water with radon and other chemical elements. For instance, electro-magnetic effects map shows the location of electro-transmission poles, which cause harm humans because of strong electromagnetic fields emitted by them. City wise and locality wise, all the environment data is combined into a consolidated ecological map. Real estate buyers are informed about dangerous or, on the contrary, favorable for dwelling. In several European real estate agencies now itself one can get such service in order to take a right decision. Home in Eco-style Choosing a right place for house is only half a success. Even if we buy house in most eco-friendly locality there is no assurance that it will be in accordance with safety norms. Not less important are: materials used for the construction of house and also whether that house be warm, cozy and safe. If anything, most complete is the concept of healthy and safe abode took shape is in eco-home idea where a lot useful can be learnt. Eco-home should have the following features: energy saving, environment and people friendly, maximum autonomy in life support systems. Energy saving is one among the most important features is not just incidental because utmost reduction of heat loss accordingly results in significant decrease in the heating expenses. It is noted that modern construction technologies enable to achieve impressive results. Now in Western Europe, energy saving houses are already built everywhere because they consume energy 10 times lesser than conventional houses. Heating of these houses is less expensive than the traditional ones.
