Energy efficiency is something that all homeowners should consider when building a new home. Technology and advancements have progressed to engineer highly energy efficient homes that not only help the environment, but also the wallet. Blowing Rock green home builders like Fairbanks Home Builders create custom, green spaces that minimize their footprint during the process of the build, and maximize the energy efficiency rating of the home.
There are many different designations available to energy efficient homes and different ratings that green builders can apply for and receive. Energy Star rated homes are custom designed and built to pass rigorous Energy Star inspections. Blowing Rock green home builders, such as Fairbanks Home Builders, have to ensure that the home offers energy savings and offset the energy with innovative technologies and construction materials. It must be built from the ground up using the appropriate standards for Energy Star certification in order to pass.
Your energy bill could suffer from inefficient heating and cooling. If you have drafts coming into your home during the winter or you have an inefficient heating unit, your unit will be working hard yet still failing to heat your home. Baseboard heating is a common feature in the High Country, yet one of the most inefficient methods of heating your home. Let Fairbanks install an Energy Star approved green heating system and replace your doors and windows with Energy Star approved insulation for your home. These are just a few ways Fairbanks Home Builders can help, but our knowledge and expertise is endless.
