Green Building/Energy Tips

Green Building

Green practices in home building, remodeling, and land development have marked a shift in the way we live today. Thanks to more durable roof coverings, insulated windows, increased insulation, and high-efficiency heating, cooling, and water heating equipment, homes built today are 100% more energy-efficient than homes built in the 1970s. In the long-term, green improvements can save money and help protect the environment. More and more local governments are updating outdated zoning and subdivision codes to reflect these demands and changes for a more sustainable development.

 

Energy Tips

An energy efficient new home has the advantage of reducing energy bills, minimizing your impact on the environment, and creating a comfortable living space for you and your family.

 

For new homes, builders now have at their disposal a vast array of materials, components, appliances and techniques to achieve optimal energy efficiency. Quality work and good materials have always been hallmarks of a well-built home, but an understanding of how a house operates as a system is essential in building an energy efficient home.
