Buy New, Stay Cool! Energy Efficient Homes | Cornerstone Homes
Everyone wants to save money and reduce energy to help the environment, right? At Cornerstone Homes, we make that really easy for you! With state-of-the-art energy-efficient and smart construction, your home will be more comfortable than any home you have ever lived in.
New is better! Most energy efficient knowledge and technology was not available when our older homes were built. We’ve gotten smarter!!! With today’s new homes you don’t have to worry about drafty windows or the hassle of storm windows, doors that aren’t insulated, HVAC systems that use a lot of energy and money, and much more.
Below are a few of the specific ways we make sure you are comfortable and saving money so you can take those trips you’ve been wanting to do, buy that new sports car or whatever is on your bucket list! Our construction design team stays on top of the latest features for you.
A tight thermal envelope is the enclosure that holds warm or cool air inside the house. An air seal energy package at all exterior walls, windows, and doors create a barrier that limits leaks.
Fresh Air Ventilation
Efficient delivery and filtration systems reduce dust, odors and indoor contaminants ensuring a healthier home.
Improved Insulation System
The framing technique, along with type, thickness and R-Value of insulation, (R38 in attic and R15 in exterior walls) increases energy efficiency by minimizing voids and gaps. Spray foam behind outlets to prevent airflow. Caulking and sealing package to minimize air filtration. Insulated garage door.
The use of Low-E glass, thermal pane windows minimizes heat transfer from the sun into your home to keep you cool and helps prevent heat loss during the winter months.
Trane gas heat and electric AC properly sized to meet your home’s needs. Multiple air ducts and return air grilles help stimulate fresh air ventilation, decrease humidity, enable the air to circulate more easily and reduce energy usage. Systems are controlled by a programmable thermostat.
ZIP System® R-sheathing is the simple all-in-one structural panel with built-in exterior insulation that features integrated moisture, air, and thermal protection. The Zip System® features 4 layers that work to combat air and moisture from the front, and heat and cold from the back.
1. Built-In exterior insulation
2. Integrated water-resistive barrier
3. Continuous air barrier
4. Structural durability
Moisture management is important. Using the right-sized HVAC systems, multiple air ducts and returns help dry the moisture that naturally passes through the home.
Energy-saving roof vents for full attic ventilation. Radient barrier roof decking helps reduce energy consumption.
A home’s water efficiency can have a great impact on the owner’s wallet, that’s why we choose water-efficient toilets, faucets, showerheads and appliances to save you money.
Energy star rated appliances to save water, electricity, and money.
Maximize Natural Light
Create living spaces that feel bright and airy without needing light on all the time
When you walk into your new home, you can sit back, relax, and have peace of mind that you are saving money and conserving energy. And, the best part is being nice and comfortable, no matter what the season. Buying a new home is a really smart thing to do! What are you waiting for? New is better!!! Make this winter your most comfortable winter ever and don’t forget, no more shoveling snow when you live in a Cornerstone Homes community!
