Every home can be an energy efficient home.
The idea is simple: carefully design and engineer a home so that it does the most for the least amount. We do this by building the structure to take advantage of the sun for heating, cooling, and daytime lighting. The Tri-Cities has an average of 300 days of sunshine each year but has more heating days than cooling days. When we're building a new energy efficient home, we take every aspect of the home's location into account.
Our custom energy efficient homes incorporate these systems, which have earned us an Energy Star rating on every home we've built.
Additional insulation prevents loss of heat and other energy through your walls, floors, and roof. We also make sure to use only high-end insulation, which makes a big difference in the efficiency of a home.
HEAT LOSS CALCULATION
In order to assess and improve a home's efficiency, we need to be able to calculate the amount of energy that's being lost. Once we've identified the areas of concern, we can address them to make the home more efficient.
Great design and solid construction ensure that energy stays in, and the elements stay out. From walls and floors to doors and windows, our focus on energy efficiency extends throughout the entire home.
SOLAR APPLICATION: ACTIVE OR PASSIVE
Our energy efficient homes capture the full power of the sun with thoughtful and deliberate design and through the use of solar panels.
HIGHLY EFFICIENT HEATING & COOLING SYSTEMS
An energy efficient home isn't complete without a high-efficiency HVAC system. We choose units that are ideal for the size of the home and make sure they're installed using high-efficiency techniques.
WINDOW GLAZING & SOFFIT SHADING
Windows and soffits can be a big source of energy loss without proper installation and treatment. We pay special attention to every detail to achieve maximum energy efficiency.
