- Reduced energy bills. Tighter construction techniques reduce air leaks and proper sizing of HVAC systems increase efficiency and lower energy usage. Energy Star appliances and light fixtures also help to reduce energy consumption.
- Low maintenance. By building your home with high quality materials and installing them properly, home owners enjoy peace of mind and lower maintenance costs.
- More comfortable. Making your home tighter keeps temperatures regulated evenly throughout the house. Greater insulation and better performing windows helps to keep the building envelope tighter.
