At Regal Homes, going green is more than just a trendy catch phrase.
Sealing and insulating the “envelope” or “shell” of your home its outer walls, ceiling, windows, doors, and floors is often the most cost effective way to improve energy efficiency and comfort. ENERGY STAR estimates that a knowledgeable homeowner or skilled contractor can save up to 20% on heating and cooling costs (or up to 10% on their total annual energy bill) by sealing and insulating.
Ducts that move air to-and-from a forced air furnace, central air conditioner, or heat pump are often big energy wasters. Sealing and insulating ducts can improve the efficiency of your heating and cooling system by as much as 20 percent and sometimes much more.
Energy-efficient windows employ advanced technologies, such as protective coatings and improved frames, to help keep heat in during winter and out during summer. These windows also block damaging ultraviolet sunlight that can discolor carpets and furnishings
Regal Homes is commitmed to preserving the environment while constructing a home that is energy efficient and cost-effective. Regal’s green homes boast concrete-poured walls that are a full four inches thicker than standard wood-framed construction. When complete, the home will not only be virtually soundproof, enhancing the relaxation factor inside the home, but will be heated and cooled year-round for about a dollar a day – that’s less than a cup of gourmet coffee! And lower energy costs are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to safety, functionality and convenience. Not only will this home be virtually impervious to common household pests such as rodents, insects and spiders; it will also greatly enhance the quality of life for its occupants by all but eliminating the misery of allergy symptoms.
