Consumers Call For Sustainable Home Construction

Related image

Sustainability is the key word in new home construction. Rising energy costs, poor air quality and wasteful water usage are driving the consumer demand for greener houses, according to the National Association of Home Builders.

Energy-efficiency measures: Buyers of new homes have come to expect high levels of insulation, efficient HVAC systems, high-performance windows, and energy-saving appliances and lighting.

Water conservation practices: Water-efficient fixtures and appliances, whole-house filtration systems, and low-maintenance landscaping are three ways to conserve this precious natural resource.

Material selections: Durable products that are as long-lasting as they are eco-friendly include high-performance engineered wood, wood alternatives, recycled building materials, and sustainably harvested lumber.

Air-quality considerations: The home’s indoor environment is enhanced by the choice of high-quality HVAC equipment, formaldehyde-free finishes and consumer products with low volatile organic compounds.

Site design measures: Incorporating green spaces and preserving healthy trees are positive ways to minimize disruption to the existing land.
