A LEED home is much more energy efficient than a traditional home.
In order to comply with LEED requirements, Terra uses a much higher grade insulation, top quality heating and cooling equipment, superior doors and windows which all work together to keep indoor temperatures constant and comfortable. Also included are ENERGY STAR appliances, tankless hot water heaters, low-flow faucets and plumbing fixtures, and LED light bulbs installed throughout the home. Just to give you an idea of how much you can save, the January 2016 utility bill for an 1850 square foot, 3 story home was $29.00.
Additionally, since Terra is held to a much higher standard in achieving LEED certified status, the result is a stronger, better quality home that will need minimal maintenance and repairs, and will last for generations.
