Habitat homes are unique. And now they’re even more affordable because they meet or exceed many industry environmental and “green” standards. When a family moves in they can expect to be comfortable and save on energy bills. Here’s how we do it:
- 10% better than Energy Star
- Very high R-values
- Energy Star Rated with LEED elements
- Built in passive heating and cooling feature to suit Canada’s climate
- Solar ready
- Excellent energy savings for the family, (37% gas savings- average family)
*LEED = Leadership in Energy and Environmental DesignUnder LEED, buildings accumulate points for things such as saving energy, having accessible mass transit, and mitigating storm water runoff. The building earns a LEED rating based on its tallied points. The higher the tally, the more sustainable the building. LEED is an internationally recognized green building certification system.
