What makes your home a Green or Healthy Home?

Some of the many green features are:
- ICF (Insulated Concrete Forms) Walls and Roof
- R-33 Roof (plus Boral White Concrete Tile with Emit. .91 and SRI 93)
- R-22 Walls
- 5 kwh Solar system generates 100% of energy needed
- 20 SEER Trane HVAC (2-tons only)
- ERV (Energy Recovery Ventilator) whole house ventilation system which precisely exchanges inside air with fresh outside air while exchanging the heat and humidity between the cool outgoing air and warm incoming air. Thus the house has a continuous supply of clean, filtered air providing a more allergy free, healthy indoor climate.
- Low-E windows are vinyl clad and double paned
- Exterior Entry door is a Fiberglass Therma-Tru door with high quality insulation values.
- House has all LED bulbs throughout
- Custom Whole House Water Filtration System
- Bamboo flooring
- Low-VOC wood stains and sealers - Zero-VOC paint
- Low EMF (electromagnetic field) design
- Rain Water Catchment system with 4,000 gallons storage
- Low-flow water fixtures and water conserving appliances
- Concrete flooring in living room, dining, kitchen, bathrooms, and hallway minimizes flooring material use.
- No-VOC / No-formaldehyde drywall, which improves indoor air quality and protects against mold.
- Locally-sourced reclaimed wood custom furniture
- No toxic chemicals used in the house (eco-friendly cleaning products only)

SHELL:
ICF (Insulated Concrete Forms) constructions are proven energy efficient products that have been well documented to significantly reduce heating and cooling loads in buildings. What features and benefits do ICF construction have that typical construction methods lack?
. High performance R-values
. Permanent performance no downgrading over time
. Significantly lower costs to heat and cool
. No air infiltration means no dust or allergens
. No cavity walls for mold, mildew, bugs or rodents
. Non-toxic materials - No off-gassing of materials
. High wind resistant - Impact resistant
. Fire rated
. Strength is permanent
. Will not rot or decay
. Resistant to termites
. No maintenance requirements
. Enhances steady temperatures
. Home owners insurance approximately half the price
. Sound Insulation

This can cut heating and cooling bills by an estimated 42% less energy to heat and 33% less energy to cool than comparable traditional houses. ICF homes have withstood fires, rains, floods, hurricane and tornado-force winds with minimal or no structural damage.


Photovoltaic Solar System
Don’t ever pay an electric bill again. 100% of this home’s electrical needs are provided by the sun through a 5KWh Photovoltaic Grid Tied Net Metering System. You will be able to monitor the performance of this system over the Internet.
When connected to the grid, every watt of electricity that your system generates in excess of your home usage is sold back to the utility and credited to your account at full retail rates. Not a single watt is lost.
Most solar electric systems are dead in the water when the grid goes down. Not this one. We have a battery backup, which allows for continuous operation during any power outage.
This is the closest you will find to complete independence from the grid.
