Over the years, the concept of energy efficiency has become more and more prevalent in the home building industry. Clients and builders alike are becoming more educated on the benefits of an energy efficient household, both for the environment and for your wallet.
Here at Matt Powers, we’re proud to offer our clients energy efficient homes in a number of different ways. Not only do we build our floor plans to maximize energy efficiency, but we’re also an Energy Star Partner, and officially certified through the US Green Building Council’s LEED for Homes program.
Most of the homes that we build are LEED ((Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified! This certification requires our homes to be built with the utmost care, following strict mandates for indoor air quality, material specification and resource origination.
“LEED is the most widely used green building rating system in the world. It provides a framework to create healthy, highly efficient and cost-saving green buildings. Simply put, LEED certified homes are higher quality.” – Green Home Guide
