‘Energy Star’ Compliant.
The incredible and powerful shift to responsible building techniques is both powerful and permanent. Building GREEN will continue to become more and more prevalent as both techniques and materials become more accepted and less expensive. It is a trend I think we all recognize as incredibly important.
Seeing ‘green’ on display is increasingly common. The marketplace has placed more and more emphasis on sustainability, responsibility and lower energy signatures and home building has followed suit. Additionally, government mandates have increased the required levels of efficiencies in mechanical equipment … yet another positive step in making sure we build far more responsibly than ever.
The bottom line is that people have become more and more willing to invest in more efficient systems, insulation and better air quality with the understanding that payoff for these improvements are less tangible than the built-in cappuccino maker, exotic Brazilian granite or jetted tub. They are also adopting the view that sustainable building techniques are just more important that anyone initially realized and that lowering energy signatures is important not only to us as individuals, but to our county and the planet.
