More people are environmentally conscious than ever before. This includes homeowners and those looking to buy or build a new house. There are many different ways a new homeowner can build a house today that is sustainable for tomorrow. Green technology is an important part of modern home building.
Our partners, Westchester Modular, make Energy Star ready green modular housing with Energy Star certification done right in their factory. Energy Star and green built modular construction can help homeowners save almost 15% on utility costs.
WHAT IS BUILDING GREEN?
Green Building is a design and construction process that saves energy and natural resources while protecting the environment. A green built house creates less waste, uses less energy and less water to manufacture. Westchester Modular participates in the Energy Star and LEED programs that encourage the growth of green construction.
THE ADVANTAGES OF BUILDING GREEN
An important aspect of green construction is the conservation of materials and the reduction of building materials such a lumber. Modular manufacturing by its very nature is Green building. We recycle materials, reduce material waste, and have a low environmental impact on the house site. Every Westchester Modular house is built in a climate-controlled factory. Building this way reduces the chance of weather related damage or delays in completion of the home. Building in an environmentally controlled environment also eliminates the possibility of lumber becoming wet and incurring mold damage.
