High-Performance Homes Made Simple!
Choosing an efficient, healthy, and resilient home is one of the best decisions you can make!
What is a high-performance home?
Very few people make a purchasing decision based solely on the appearance and sticker price when purchasing a car. We don’t just want a car that looks nice, we want a car that will be safe, easy to maintain and fuel efficient. Often, homeowners don’t know that they can access the same kind of information when purchasing a new home.
A high-performance home has not only been designed and engineered by qualified people, but also has been inspected by certified third-party building science experts. This provides detailed information about the home you are interested in. Depending on programs, such as ENERGY STAR® or current building codes, information about energy efficiency (the cost of ownership), comfort, durability, health and safety, and high performance can help you make a more informed decision when purchasing a home.
