Bamboo Floors
Renewable flooring materials like Bamboo cost less than hardwood and look great. Bamboo grows significantly faster than hard wood so it is sustainable.
Geo-Thermal
The system uses no fossil fuels and provide comfort year-round, with zero CO2 emissions, for a fraction of the operating cost of conventional HVAC systems.
Heat Pumps / AC
Heating and Cooling accounts for about 35% - 45% of a home's energy cost. Consider a 'dual fuel' hybrid system with a gas furnace for very cold weather and a heat pump for mild weather.
Ceiling Fans
Over the summer you get a breeze. With air flow over your skin, you feel as comfortable at 75 degrees as in air that is still at 70 degrees.
Windows
Choose ENERGY STAR® qualified windows with a U-Factor of 0.35 or less. The lower the U factor the better, since it measures heat transfer throughout the whole window unit.
