Green building construction practices and products make homes more energy efficient through proper, adequate insulation and air sealing. Efficient windows, appliances, lighting, and other household equipment also help add to the savings and keep your monthly electricity bills low. Up to 65% lower! And with energy prices rising and non-renewable fuels being depleted, an energy efficient home is an asset we can all appreciate for years to come.
Water bills are also reduced through low-flow equipment and thoughtful land use.
Homes built following Green Building Standards may also qualify for special “Green” financing called an Energy Efficient Mortgage (EEM), they can offer you more purchasing power.
