According to data from the US Environmental Protection Agency, our nation’s buildings account for:
39 percent of total energy use
12 percent of the total water consumption
68 percent of total electricity consumption
38 percent of the carbon dioxide emissions
With statistics like these, it is easy to see why building with conscience is so important. There are environmental, economic, and social benefits as a result of conscientious, well-planned and designed features in new home construction.
Environmental benefits are those which enhance and protect biodiversity and ecosystems. This is especially important in Anne Arundel County and others in Maryland, where we have increased conservation and water quality considerations.
Economic benefits directly affect new homeowners; reduced operating costs, efficient performance and low maintenance can be anticipated. The value is shown in reduced utility bills, as many new homeowners can attest.
The social benefits, such as increased occupant comfort and health and improved overall quality of life are one of the best reasons to choose new home construction. Products and features are continuously more efficient and improving. Utilizing these puts less strain on local infrastructure and the community as a whole.
We have infinite options to build a beautiful, comfortable, efficient and easy to maintain home. If you would like more information, feel free to email us or comment! Questions? They are always welcome!
