Energy Efficient, High Performance Quality Homes

Indoor Air Quality

Computer Controlled Ventilation

Bath fans, exhausting outward, draw fresh air in to ensure fresh air quality.

  • One or more bath fans will run at computer designated speeds to bring in enough fresh air to maintain a healthy air quality.
  • Computer timers are set to adjust fan speed & run time, according to the blower door test results, to bring in the required fresh air (measured in complete air changes of the home per hour).

Carbon Monoxide & Smoke Detectors

Devices that detect the presence of smoke and/or carbon monoxide.

  • Concentration-time alarm sensor warns homeowners of the presence of carbon monoxide gas or smoke.
  • Detectors are installed on all floors and the immediate vicinity of all sleeping areas for maximum detection.

Puron® Refrigerant in HVAC

Refrigerant is used in A/C systems to remove heat from home.

  • Puron® is an environmentally sound non-Ozone depleting refrigerant only available in Carrier/ Bryant systems.
  • Results in greater longevity of HVAC equipment because 410 A refrigerant systems use newer synthetic lubricants that extend system life.

Individual Return Ducts in Bedrooms

Small ducts that move air from individual rooms back into the HVAC system to better circulate the air.

  • Balances airflow throughout the home, even when doors are closed, resulting in more steady temperatures throughout.
  • Reduces heating and cooling loads on HVAC systems, allowing them to function more efficiently.

Low VOC Emission Paints and Carpets

Carpets and paints that contain a low level of VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) emissions.

  • Paints and carpets with low levels of VOCs are less likely to cause allergic or other reactions.
  • Paints meet EPA standards by containing low levels of VOCs due to the use of water-based solvents instead of petroleum-based solvents.
