Building a Green & Sustainable Home
With Swanson Homes
Whether you are looking to upgrade your existing house or custom build a new home, we are here to provide you with the expertise and guide you through the decision making process on how you can build a more sustainable and energy-efficient home.
Every home built by Swanson Homes undergoes multiple stages of energy-efficiency testing during the build process. All of the important components that make up the building envelope are evaluated by a professional energy testing firm to ensure that we are not only exceeding industry standards but also that we are crafting a home that will be mindful of energy conservation for years to come.
Sustainable Materials & Options
Sustainable housing is all about creating more eco-friendly, energy-efficient spaces. Each and every part of your custom build project can bring in green materials and options such as roofing material, building material, windows, cabinets, counters, insulation, and flooring.
You can choose to use recycled products or renewable materials. You can add renewable energy options like solar and wind-powered energy, or choose to build a home that relies on electric.
As part of the planning and design process, our team will assist with your home’s orientation with the sun to optimize natural lighting. We also help to educate our clients on the differences between the various window choices and eco-friendly lighting options.
Make It A Smart Home
Make your home green with Smart Home automation. Easily control your thermostat heating/air conditioning systems, fireplaces, lighting, speakers, security all from your phone, tablet or computer. Connect your home automation to Google Home for voice-activated lights, appliances, and speakers all saving you time and energy with efficient control of your home --even when you are away from home!
One of the best ways to build green? Build a home that you will live in longer. Our team believes when you build a custom home that prioritizes the architectural and superior design details around your unique lifestyle and needs, you will end up with a home that you will love for years to come.
