When building green, homebuilders take into account the environmental impact of every decision that’s made – from how the land is developed to what type of appliances are installed.
Contractors have developed a checklist of goals that have to be completed for the house to be certified “green”.
It includes a radiant barrier in the roof decking and using cellulose insulation which gives you a lot less heat and cold transfer thru the walls.
Also included, installing tankless hot water heaters which only heat water as it’s needed – and sensors that automatically tell the sprinkler system to stay off when it’s been raining
So look into building green – it’s a growing trend that’s better for the planet – while saving money in energy costs over the long life of the home.
