When building your dream home, it’s important to take energy efficiency into account. Building green can help lower monthly energy bills, can provide a more comfortable environment and can also help lower your carbon footprint. At Omega Homes, we pride ourselves on our ability to blend design aesthetics with energy efficiency to build your luxury custom home.
When selecting the lot for your custom home, there are a number of things to look for if you want to maximize energy efficiency. One of the biggest factors to take into account is which way the house can be positioned on the lot. To maximize energy efficiency, you’ll want to take advantage of passive strategies like using the sun’s heat in the winter to warm the house and shade from trees in the summer to provide natural cooling.
Quality Insulation and Windows
It’s important to use high-quality insulation and windows when building an energy efficient custom home. The majority of energy loss occurs through because of windows and insulation. Using high-quality materials can increase comfort and can also help lower bills.
Advances in technology have created extremely energy-efficient appliances. Selecting the right appliances for your needs can help ensure an energy efficient custom home without sacrificing comfort. From radiant flooring and geothermal systems to high-efficiency washers—there are many ways to keep your custom dream home green.
When building a custom home, you have the opportunity to include smart technologies. Not only do things like smart thermostats and voice-activated home assistants make your life easier, they can also help keep your home extremely energy efficient by turning off lights, heat or air conditioning when the home is empty.
When you build a custom home, it makes sense to be as energy efficient as possible. At Omega Homes, we can help incorporate green practices and energy efficient technologies into your luxury dream home.
