Energy Efficiency is one of our main goals, saving you money with the added benefits of a more comfortable and healthy home.
1. Effective Insulation
Properly installed and inspected insulation in floors, walls, and attics ensures even temperatures throughout the house, reduced energy use, and increased comfort.
2. High-Performance Windows
Energy-efficient windows employ advanced technologies, such as protective coatings and improved frames, to help keep heat in during winter and out during summer. These windows also block damaging ultraviolet sunlight that can discolor carpets and furnishings.
3. Tight Construction and Ducts
Sealing holes and cracks in the home's "envelope" and in heating and cooling duct systems helps reduce drafts, moisture, dust, pollen, and noise. A tightly sealed home improves comfort and indoor air quality while reducing utility and maintenance.
4. Efficient Heating and Cooling Equipment
In addition to using less energy to operate, energy-efficient heating and cooling systems can be quieter, reduce indoor humidity, and improve the overall comfort of the home. When properly installed into a tightly sealed home, this equipment won't have to work so hard to heat and cool the home.
5. Efficient Products
We have chosen energy efficient products such as Tyvek wrap,which has the best perm ratings in the industry, allowing your home to funciton at peak performance. DuPont window wrap helps alleviate water and air infiltration. We are careful to choose energy efficient appliances.
6. Third-Party Verification
With the help of independent Home Energy Raters, and with the expertise of our building partners we choose the most appropriate energy-saving features for your home. Additionally, raters conduct onsite testing and inspections to verify the energy efficiency measures, as well as insulation, air tightness, and duct sealing details.
