Greater comfort, better efficiency and more savings, are just some of the added benefits of a GREEN HOME.
“A newly released study on sustainable, high-performance homebuilding practices indicates homebuyers and homebuilders alike are increasingly embracing and energy-efficient construction.
Earlier this month, the National Association of Home Builders and McGraw Hill Construction released a SmartMarket Report titled, “Green Multifamily and Single Family Homes: Growth in a Recovering Market.” The study estimates that 84 percent of single-family homebuilders and 79 percent of multifamily homebuilders will be involved in green residential construction by 2018 based on builders’ increasing use of environmentally sensitive products and systems in recent years.
The 64-page report states there are three main factors influencing builders’ decision to construct this type of housing: energy cost increases; code, ordinance and regulation changes; and green product availability/affordability. –The report is at www.nahb.org; and search for McGraw Hill.”
