What goes into green homes?

According to the NAHB website: "Green homes incorporate environmental considerations and resource efficiency into every step of the building and development process to minimize environmental impact. The design, construction, and operation of a home must focus on energy and water efficiency, resource efficient building design and materials, indoor environmental quality, and must take the home's overall impact on the environment into account."

Benefits to Homeowners

$$$ Saving Lowered Operating Costs due to energy-efficient appliances, lighting systems, HVAC equipment, water-conserving bathroom & kitchen fixtures and outdoor irrigations systems; Employing technologies such as photovoltaic panels for solar electricity and water heating, and geothermal heat exchangers could reduce dependence on public utilities, too.

Easy Outdoor Maintenance is acheived by effective stormwater management & landscaping. Green building also employs the use of longer-performing materials and careful construction assemblies. Drained foundations, water spouts on gutters, and flashing around windows and doors might reduce the opportunity for system failure within the home due to moisture intrusion.

Improved Indoor Air Quality is one of the guiding principles of the ICC 700-2008 National Green Building Standard and the NAHB Model Green Home Building Guidelines. Homes that allow for proper air exchange through ventilation, and low-emitting products like low- or no-VOC paints reduce off-gassing. Further, green building practices look at reducing the opportunity for moisture intrusion. The efficient HVAC systems, windows, and floor plans also mean that heating and cooling is better distributed throughout the home.

Lessen your Enviromental Impact. Increased energy and water efficiency in construction could lead to decreased energy and water consumption in a home throughout its lifespan. Further, some renewable, recycled, and other efficient building products used in green home construction may reduce the impact on natural resources. Also, green homes often include resource and waste reduction and recycling amenities.
