Today is Earth Day. All around Atlanta there are festivities to celebrate; but more so to remind us that we need to do our part to take care of Earth. After all, it is the only one we have. I believe if each of us does a little bit everyday, we can take care of our earth and have something to be proud to hand down to the next generation.
At our Active Adult community; Somerset in Woodstock, we build all of our ranch homes to Earthcraft standards. This provides a home that is efficient and healthy to live in. The heating and cooling systems and building envelope installed in our homes keep the operating costs low as well. All of our homes have a reflective barrier roof deck which keeps the attic/bonus room cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. During the construction process, our homes are sealed tighter, reducing the air leaks. Top quality insulation fills the walls and ceilings to aid in the efficiency of the heating and cooling. Windows and doors are specifically chosen to add to the energy efficiency of the home.
Many of our lights and all of our appliance are Energy Star rated as well to improve the efficiency of the home. In addition, we use compact fluorescent lights whenever possible. All of the little details add up to significant operating savings for our homeowners!
So celebrate Earth Day by owning an ‘Earth friendly’ home!! We have 2 homes ready to move in right now. You even still have time to take advantage of the Federal Housing Tax Credit. Stop by today and see what an Earthcraft home is all about!
