A New Mexico resident wanted to build a new home away from the distractions of society and full of green technology. The residence was built in adherence to sustainable design and close to nature, according to the Las Cruces Bulletin.

Located in Mesilla Valley, the home that Angel Saenz built will contain all of the latest advancements in green technology. The New Mexico resident wanted to keep a green residence in order to achieve his goal of being as close to nature as possible, reported the news source.

"I was just blown away, I was amazed by this area in Las Cruces that was so unique, it had the look and feel of Ruidoso," Saenz told the Bulletin. "I originally bought one 1-acre lot and then I decided to buy the second acre. It was very quiet and private, and I wanted to keep that."

Saenz decided to use a radiant heating system for the living quarters of the house, as the Mesilla Valley resident noted that this technology spoils the homeowner due to the effectiveness and comfort that is provided, according to the news source.

Radiant heating systems can provide a homeowner with a high level of comfort, as the temperature difference between the floor and ceiling varies by only two degrees, much less than the more than ten degree difference in a traditional forced air system.
