Why Green Building?

Your home is the most important building in your life. A green built home uses materials designed to minimize harmful effects on the body and the environment. They have cleaner air to allow us to breathe easier. More natural light can help us be more productive.

Green homes are built using recycled and other environmentally responsible materials. They are designed to minimize the impact on the environment by creating less pollution, using less water and requiring less energy to maintain. This also helps lower utility bills.

We spend most of our time indoors so it is important that our homes promote healthy and comfortable living.
 
Benefits of Green Building

INDOOR AIR QUALITY: According to EPA estimates, indoor air can be as high as ten times more polluted than outdoor air. LEED certified homes are designed for better indoor air quality, maximizing fresh air indoors and minimizing exposure to pollutants and other contiminants in the air.

LOWER WATER USAGE: Water usage in homes can be reduced by as much as 30% by incorporating water-conserving plumbing components.

ENERGY EFFICIENCY: In a typical home, 42% of energy is used for heating, 30% for electronics, lighting and appliances, 18% for water heating and 11% on refrigeration and air conditioning. On average, a LEED certified home uses 30-40% less electricity overall.
