At AV Homes, we’re big proponents of energy efficiency. Every one of our homes uses the newest energy-efficient construction practices, so you can rest assured that when you choose one of our homes, you’re choosing a future with lower energy bills, and planet-friendly products and processes.
Many of our green building solutions optimize energy consumption, so they’re healthy for the planet, as well as your wallet. For instance, our Energy Star™ labeled homes feature appliances, lighting, and plumbing that can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by some 4,500lbs per house/per year.
While availability varies by location and specific state regulations, below are some of the energy efficient technologies we offer.
- Radiant-barrier roof sheathing which reduces temperatures in attics and crawlspaces by up to 30° while still allowing moisture to escape.
- High SEER air conditioning units that keep you comfortable, save money, and protect the health of the ozone thanks to environmentally-friendly refrigerant.
- Eco-friendly windows built with Low Emissivity (‘Low E’) glass and channeled vinyl frames keep heat out, let sunlight in, and offer high strength and stability.
- Advanced non-toxic insulation materials that keep temperature extremes under control, diminish noise and insect intrusion, and substantially reduce energy costs.
At AV Homes, we’re proud to be recognized for our environmentally sustainable home building practices. We are committed to not only building you a new home you’ll love, but doing it in an ecologically informed manner. By integrating these features into our homes, we honor our commitment to you, your family and our environment, long after you move in.
