Why You Should Build Green

Green building means your next home can be energy efficient.

Creating an energy efficient home is not as hard as it seems. Just by making the simple decision to build your house greenly, you are halfway there. It all begins with a thought, which leads to your new energy efficient home. Look to the experienced team of Calgary Infill Builders, Sunset Homes, when considering green building.

Any combination of green initiatives can make a difference, and you will be a proud homeowner knowing that you are making that difference with your tankless hot water system or heat recovery ventilators. Something as simple as dual flush toilets and compact fluorescent bulbs may seem like an invisible step, but company coming into your home will take notice.

Here are just a few initiatives that Sunset Homes is taking to help our environment, and get you into to your new Energy Efficient home:

  • Compact fluorescent bulbs
  • 2 lb spray foam insulation
  • Energy Star windows
