Advantages of Building an Energy Efficient Home
We all have a responsibility to create a sustainable planet for future generations. It’s more important than ever to find ways to live with less dependence on fossil fuels. One way you can do this is by building your next home with Caruso Homes — a company dedicated to protecting the environment and creating healthier living spaces for families!

Homeowners who choose Caruso Homes are making the smartest decision possible for their future, by building energy-efficient homes. Here are just a few reasons why building with sustainability in mind is so beneficial to homebuyers!

Efficient Appliances And Equipment

It’s no secret that highly efficient appliances and innovative technology can save you money on your monthly utility bills. Investing a little more upfront for Energy Star appliances, low-flow plumbing, rapid-recovery water heaters, energy-saving HVAC systems, and LED lighting will pay off quickly as your monthly bills shrink.

Newly built homes are also more affordable to maintain. Not having to repair or replace the most expensive components of your home is a definite perk. For instance, a home that’s 20+ years old will probably need major repairs or upgrades just to keep it running or to meet modern efficiency standards.

Cost-Saving Building Practices

Caruso Homes finds the best options for reducing your home’s lifetime expenses. We do this with Energy Elite building practices from the get-go.

With proper roofing and attic ventilation, superior insulation quality, programmable thermostats, and well-thought out floor plans, a Caruso Home saves you money on heating and cooling bills year round. This means lower utility costs in every season from less air conditioning use during heat waves and more radiant warmth through the winter months.

Even insulated front doors and low E-coated, argon filled windows do their part to protect your wallet!

Healthier Living Solutions

An energy-efficient home not only saves you money but also creates a healthier living space for you and your family.

With eco-friendly building materials (like low Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) paint), a whole-house mechanical ventilation system for better air filtration, and high efficiency furnaces that don’t release fumes into the house like other models, your family breathes easier with a Caruso Home.

Caruso Homes are designed to be warmer, safer, and overall more comfortable for every member of your family. 

Conserving The Environment

Energy efficiency refers to a building's ability to use less fuel in both its construction and long term use. An energy efficient home protects the environment by using less energy, thereby producing less pollution.

This is an important consideration for the eco-conscious homeowner.The environmental benefits include:
  • Less pollution from fossil fuels
  • Lower ecological footprint on Earth's resources
  • Reduction of greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide which contribute to global warming
With an eye on the future and your present needs, we’re committed to building homes today’s families will love tomorrow too!

There’s never been a better time to invest in an eco-friendly future!
