Why Go Green?
Not only does “green” building reduces the negative environmental impact of construction, but it incorporates beneficial elements for all parties involved. By building a “green” home you will be maximizing the energy-efficiency, air quality, durability, and sustainability. All of these qualities combine to create significant savings on energy and water bills, an advantage all homeowners hope to achieve. If financial benefits were not enough, homes built with “green” standards have consistently been linked with higher levels of occupant health due to proper air seals and ventilation, which prevents mold growth, allergen spread and pest infestation.
Although there are multiple “green” building programs, Earthcraft certification stands apart from the competitors because it has been specially designed to suit the unique climate conditions of the Southeast. EarthCraft projects are built for energy, water and resource efficiency, durability, and enhanced indoor air quality – all key factors in achieving a healthier, more sustainable lifestyle.
EarthCraft projects have a number of benefits, including:
- Lower utility costs
- Enhanced indoor air quality
- Increased comfort
- Reduced home maintenance requirements
- Third party inspections and verification
- Higher resale value
