What is a green home?

Green homes are designed to use less energy, water, and other natural resources, therefore protecting the environment. They are also healthier for the people living inside! Green homes are designed to keep mold and allergens away from your family. Green homes use products free of chemicals. They also ensure that all appliances are correctly vented so that no toxic fumes accumulate in your home.

What is the purpose of creating a green home?

Green homes allow individuals and families to lessen their environmental impact by reducing their consumer waste. That means less electricity consumption and fewer carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere. Additionally, green homes are more comfortable than the average home. They are sealed to prevent drafts and are very well-insulated, creating a thermal “blanket” for your home.
