Why Go Green?
LOWER ENERGY BILLS
Green means better insulation, tight ductwork, sealed doors and windows, efficient heating and cooling, efficient lighting and appliances. All of those together pay us back over time with lower electric and gas bills.
LOWER WATER BILLS
Green means low flow faucets and showerheads, dual flush toilets, efficient irrigation systems, and managing the storm water on site — all of which lead to lower water bills.
INDOOR AIR QUALITY
Green means sustainable design and technology unite to enhance a resident's overall quality of life by improving air and water quality and reducing noise pollution.
A MORE DURABLE HOME
Green means quality building that lasts longer than a comparable product. Over time, you save money in maintenance and replacement costs by increasing the longevity of your home.
HOME VALUE & SALABILITY
Green means increasing the sales price of your home and using its sustainability as a marketing tool to get your home noticed. Finally, homeowners can benefit from the many tax credits and incentives for going green.
