So you’ve decided to look into the exciting possibility of building an energy efficient home with CFS Green Homes. On behalf of Planet Earth and ourselves too, we’d like to start by saying thank you! Energy consumption in the average home is through the roof, no pun intended, and every time someone decides to make a greener choice in his or her home life, it helps to make the world a safer place for future generations. However, just like everything new and innovative, people are bound to have questions about our processes, our product, and the long-term facts of living in an efficient home.
How does my Energy Efficient Home Look Like?
If you’re not familiar with energy efficient homes, it’s easy to imagine a house straight out of your favorite (or least favorite) science fiction film. Well, don’t worry. Your house isn’t going to be covered roof-to-foundation with solar panels, tinfoil or blinking lights (unless, of course, that’s what you want). Our homes are as simple and elegant as you want them to be. The choice of what your home will look like is completely up to you. We achieve our energy efficiency with our materials and layout, not with added clutter on your roof or walls!
Is it Safe?
In a word, yes. CFS Green Homes, like any homebuilder worth your time, does not make compromises when it comes to the health and safety of the people who will live in the homes that we build. Our materials are proof against weather, vermin and everyday wear and tear. Our safety standards are the very highest. If a building material is likely to break, degrade or compromise your safety in any way, we simply do not use it. Energy efficient homes represent an increase in home quality and safety, and we will never do anything to change that.
Will This Save Me Money?
Absolutely! For the same reason our energy efficient homes are easy on the environment, they are easy on your pocketbook. Energy efficiency means decreasing the amount of energy you put into a home without sacrificing your comfort or safety. Our homes cost less to heat and cool as well as to light up. As you well know, temperature control and lighting are not free! Because our homes require less power to regulate, you don’t need to pay as much money to the companies that provide those services. Everybody wins (except maybe the gas and electric companies, but you’ve given them enough of your money over the years)!
An Easy Transition with Positive Results
Making the change to an energy efficient home is almost exactly the same as the transition into any new home. Moving house is never easy, but we at CFS Green Homes believe that the benefits of living in one of our green, efficient homes far outweigh the inconvenience that always comes with transitioning to a new living space. Our homes are environment-friendly, stable and, of course, stylish. We trust you will enjoy living in them as much as we enjoy building them!
