Beautiful and Energy Efficient Green Luxury Home in Costa Rica by Sarco Architects

San Jose, Costa Rica Architectural Firm, Sarco Architects, is helping clients save energy in their new luxury homes.

“Having the ability to perform energy calculations allows the architects at Sarco to evaluate different design alternatives. “

Anyone living in Costa Rica will tell you that the cost of electricity is high.  The Costa Rica Star recently reported that CNFL customers can expect to see their electric bills go up 4.7% in May. This will mean that anyone thinking about building a new home there will have to decide how they will be optimizing their energy usage. That is why there are now people in Costa Rica who are seeking out alternative energy systems when building a luxury vacation home.

Roderick Anderson of Sarco Architects says, “Our clients tell us that part of the experience of enjoying their luxury vacation home in Costa Rica is keeping the electricity price tag at a reasonable level. Many people start thinking of a fully enclosed air-conditioned home, but when they get the energy bill they start thinking outside the box.”

Anderson’s architectural firm in Costa Rica is deeply concerned about the rising cost of electricity and really feels that the environmental impact of it all comes at a much higher price tag. Not only is his company is leading the way in designing and building energy efficient homes, but they are also highly skilled in creating environmentally responsible luxury vacation homes.

One way that his custom design build firm is doing this is by using a technology that can perform a Building Energy Analysis while still in the architectural design process. This allows for efficient building energy performance calculations right from the design model. That is very important because about 80% of the important decisions that determine a building’s energy performance are made during the design process.

Having the ability to perform energy calculations allows the architects at Sarco to evaluate different design alternatives. They then complete the design by adding energy efficient systems, equipment, and lighting. This allows the architects to present a complete and integrated solution for energy efficiency in the future custom luxury homes of their clients.

The service that Sarco Architects offers lets people who are thinking of having a vacation home built in Costa Rica to do so knowing that it will be designed with utmost concern for all environmental and energy efficiency standards.
