We take energy efficiency serious when building our homes.
This is what we do differently:
Insulate foundation walls:
Basement is now in conditioned space.
Your basement furnace does not need to work as hard to heat your home.
Basement ceiling does not need fiberglass bats which leaves your pipes exposed. This creates accessibility and a clear visual of the pipes running throughout your home.
Insulate attic rafters:
This puts your attic in conditioned space.
Your attic furnace does not need to work as hard to heat your home.
Ever been in your attic on a hot summer day? You will quickly realize how hot it gets up there. With your supplies now in conditioned space your A/C will run far more efficiently, saving you money in the long run.
On our model home [3 Katie Way] we applied this insulation package. This is above and beyond what we need to do to pass inspections. You will never see a sprinkler system in the interior of our homes.
We bring in a company to help guide us with making our homes as energy efficient as possible. You can learn more about them at http://energycodehelp.com/
