Engineering Green Homes

Today, energy efficiency is part of being a responsible citizen of the world. It affects your personal cost of power, the environment, and national economy. Your home can be a greater source of pollution than your car. In fact, 16% of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions are from the energy used in houses. Merlin Homes offers options that address these concerns with solutions that help you save energy, money and make your home healthier and more comfortable. And a decrease in monthly utility bills may offset the cost for the improved energy features, which can result in a positive cash flow.

What Makes a Green Home?

More than you might think. Site location, landscaping and size all impact a home’s environment. Mindful design can promote abundant interior natural daylight and take advantage of any prevailing breezes. Where available, non-toxic building materials, paints and sealants can be specified. Highly efficient insulation and advanced low E or double-paned windows avoid heat gain in summer and heat loss in winter. Water-efficient kitchen and bathroom fixtures conserve an increasingly scarce resource. Specially sealed crawl spaces reduce heat loss and provide warm floors. Full foundation ventilation prevent any cancer-causing natural radioactive radon gas from entering your home. And modern-day heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems keep your home clean and comfortable at a lower cost than ever before.
