The National Association of Home Builders recently conducted a survey asking new home buyers about their views on sustainability. The top sustainable features that buyers are seeking include Energy Star rated appliances, low-E windows, and programmable thermostats. There was also a strong contingent of buyers who desire even more sustainable features including geo-thermal technology, photovoltaic solar panels, and environmentally friendly building materials.
At Country Club Homes we are committed to meeting the sustainability goals of each our clients. Often times it is easiest to incorporate these features in a new home because you can ensure the infrastructure is present and the home won't require retrofitting. This is especially true if you are hoping to install either geothermal heat or photovoltaic solar panels. Other features, including high efficiency insulation or low-E windows, can be utilized during a home remodeling project but are much easier to implement in new home construction.
