About Us : Energy Efficiency

We have chosen to upgrade our insulation envelope, and will take extra steps towards sealing leaks. Our homes exceed Energy Star standards by approximately 15-25%. As a group we have focused on green strategies which offer the highest return on our investment dollar. Some options, such as geothermal wells, are not appropriate for our site. Photovoltaic panels are too costly for most of our budgets, however we have prepared designs that can provide south-facing roof planes, optimally oriented and inclined - free of vents, chimneys, etc. and ideal for present or future installations of solar conversion technologies such as photo voltaic panels and solar hot water systems.
