Today energy experts work side-by-side with homebuilders to create homes that are not only beautiful and eco-friendly, but that also create more energy efficient homes that help to minimize homeowner monthly utility costs.
Here are the top 5 innovative energy-saving practices that Landon Homes includes to build a more energy efficient home:
2. 14 SEER Air-conditioning Systems – adding matched furnaces that exceed Energy Star® standards keep your home more comfortable and your energy bills lower.
3. Low E-240 Plus glass windows that block over 84% of the harmful UV rays to keep inside temperatures cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Bottom line: this can save you up to 20% on your monthly energy bills.
4. Higher R-Value Insulation – adding blown R38 insulation on flat attic surfaces and R-22 insulation on sloped ceilings, adding ½ inch Styrofoam™ Sheathing for enhanced thermal efficiency which reduces attic temperatures up to 30 degrees and prevent up to 97% of radiant attic heat which all lowers your energy bills up to 20%.
5. 2 x 6 Wall Construction holds up to 62% more insulation, 2 x 6 framing is 50% thicker making your house sturdier and more energy efficient. Most builders offer only 2 x 4 framing.
No matter where you live or moving to, if you’re buying a new home, ask what type of energy efficient technology is being used.
