The Benefits of An Eco Friendly Home in Dallas
March 16, 2015
A new home from Dallas’ eco–friendly homebuilders, EcoView Homes, isn’t just a beautiful display of contemporary architecture and design – it has a host of benefits beyond that you’ll see through your entire home ownership experience:
No longer does your heating and air conditioning system work against the environment. The geothermal HVAC are becoming increasing popular in new home construction:
“The air smells fresh; you can hear the birds chirping and the wind rustling lazily through the trees. The home shares energy with the earth similar to the way the roots of the trees exchange the essentials of life to their leaves and branches. Sounds comfortable, doesn’t it? Geothermal heating and cooling makes that vision a reality.” – National Geographic
Gone are the days of round trips to and from the hardware store for light bulbs. With a new eco friendly home from EcoView, all of your lighting utilizes energy efficient, long-lasting LED technology.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, light emitting diodes (LEDs) often use between 25-80% less energy than standard incandescent bulbs. Not only do LED bulbs save you money on your monthly power bills – they last anywhere from 3 to 25 times longer than standard bulbs!
Spray Foam Insulation
When talking home insulation, the R-value refers to the insulating materials capacity to resist heat flow. In summary, the higher the R-value, the better the insulation.
In a warmer climate like Dallas, heating and cooling costs account for anywhere between 50-70% of a home’s energy consumption. With your home’s cost of comfort taking up such a sizable chunk of your energy bill, shouldn’t you make sure each dollar is being spent wisely?
Spray foam insulation has some of the highest R-values among insulation products available in the market today. Not only does spray foam help keep your eco friendly home cool during those brutal Dallas summers, it acts as a powerful and effective air sealant too!
