Benefits of Energy Efficient Homes
Lower Electricity Cost - Although the construction cost of an energy efficient home is significantly more than a regular home, the cost to operate will be less than the majority of existing homes. The lower cost comes from energy efficient systems installed such as tested performance, improved HVAC systems, High performance windows, air infiltration, and water efficiency.
Healthy Quality of Life - Energy efficient homes are crafted more carefully and individually for the purpose of reducing wasted energy usage, greenhouse gas emissions, and its demand for non-renewable energy resources. This commitment provides many benefits which includes providing you with healthier, cleaner living conditions.
Improved Comfort - Although we all have different definitions as to what comfort is for us. Whatever it means for you, it is guaranteed to be given by an energy efficient home. In a green home, comfort is a combination of temperature, humidity, air movement. While there is no combination of temperatures that will be considered perfect for all potential occupants, Energy Smart Builders and their HVAC contractors believe that one key to comfort is "right-sizing" of the HVAC systems.
Improved Resale Value - Your energy efficiency upgrades can not only lower your energy bill; they can also increase your home's value. Depending on how you utilise your home, it has the best chance of producing low energy bills that is 20% to 30% more efficient than homes built to 2006 International Energy Efficiency Code and significantly more efficient than virtually all homes built prior to that time. Once you decide to put your house up for sale, you can present your Efficiency Promise Certificate, it can provide a "third party verification" that the home has been designed, built, inspected and tested to perform to high standards.
Positive Impact to the Environment - The benefits of energy efficient homes are as numerous as they are critical. These benefits go beyond jumping into the market trend of buying smart homes for aesthetic purposes. The purchase of an energy efficient home also means protecting our environment with cleaner, safer air and water, reduced waste streams, and the conservation and restoration of natural resources.
