Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What Makes a High-Performance Home?

A high-performance home is a durable, cost-effective, healthy living space that lasts long. It incorporates long-lasting, low-maintenance materials and employs modern building techniques to enhance insulation, minimize air and water infiltration, and utilize efficient HVAC systems.

These homes also prioritize indoor air quality by incorporating energy recovery systems, fresh air exchangers, and low-VOC materials. While the initial cost may be higher due to these features, they are designed to reduce operating costs over time.

What Makes a Green Home?

A green home is like a high-performance home but with a focus on eco-friendly practices. It uses locally sourced materials to reduce carbon emissions, incorporates water-saving features, and may be located near urban areas or public transportation.

Contrary to common belief, green homes are not necessarily expensive. The costs have decreased as more manufacturers offer affordable green products. If you opt for a green home, we’ll help you choose quality, sustainable materials for an energy-efficient and cost-effective home.
