Green Built Home is a nationally-recognized green building initiative that reviews and certifies new homes that meet sustainable building and energy standards. They save money on utility and maintenance expenses, provide better indoor air quality, and give homeowners a sense of pride knowing that their home has a reduced impact on the environment.
Green Built Homes are comfortable, durable, and safe.
In short, it’s about health, safety and comfort. Green Homes are healthy homes – reducing allergens, and triggers for asthma and chemical sensitivity. On the surface, a green certified building may appear quite similar to conventional structures, but inside there is a significant difference. Green homes do not have cold, drafty rooms. Every room in a green home is comfortable, because a properly constructed home has a tight “envelope” that keeps the warm or cool air in and the drafts out, while ensuring that you have plenty of fresh healthy air, allowing you to fully enjoy your home.
Green building goes beyond energy efficiency.
In order to provide home owners with a healthy environment, certified green structures utilize sustainable materials, have better ventilation and better moisture control that keep small particles, allergens, and molds out of your indoor environment and duct work.
