Green Building:

It’s More Than A Trend

Homes built with eco-friendliness in mind are not only great for the environment, but they also benefit homeowners. You’ll save money and increase your home’s efficiency, all while conserving our natural resources. Making these decisions during construction will save you money in the long run.

How to Make a Home Green

Green homes typically involve conservation of water, electricity, energy, and other resources. They also minimize pollution of all forms and use sustainable materials! Some examples include:

  • Energy Star rated appliances and lighting utilizing LED technology
  • High-efficiency heating and air systems including geothermal, radiant floor heating, and energy recovery ventilation systems
  • Plumbing products that conserve water usage such as low flow toilets and fixtures
  • Using recycled materials for home building (wood beams, flooring, etc.)
  • Utilizing foam insulation to create a tightly sealed building envelope
  • Using materials with low Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) that reduce off-gassing of harmful vapors into the home
  • Installing solar panels to reduce electrical reliability on local utilities and reducing the overall energy use of the home
  • Landscaping that requires minimal watering
  • The overall building orientation of the home with sun and wind exposure in mind

HERS Rating

The industry standard for determining if a home is energy efficient is called the Home Energy Rating System (or HERS), created by the Residential Energy Services Network. The reference score is 100, and the lower your score, the more efficient the home.
