Whether you already call the sunshine state your home or you want to build a custom home there you’ll want to make sure that energy efficiency is among your top priorities. Although the weather in the area is mainly beautiful throughout the year, there are some cold days as well as those occasions when the weather becomes a bit more extreme. This is why building an energy-efficient home is so advantageous here. When you take a moment to think about these advantages you’ll notice how great they are so let’s pause for a moment to do so right now.
It’s Good for the Environment
You don’t have to look far to notice that temperatures throughout the world are on the increase today. One of the contributing causes for this is global greenhouse emissions. These result from the electricity (about 70% in 2016) and gas (over 30% in 2016) that are used in your home if it isn’t an energy-efficient home. Taking the time to care for the environment by building one of these homes is an investment in the Earth’s future. This is why you should invest some time in finding a custom home builder who belongs to the Florida Green Building Coalition. They’re a nonprofit 501(C)3 that’s dedicating to building you a custom home with an as little negative impact on the environment as possible.
It’s Good for Your Wallet
When you decide to build a custom home you decide to make a financial investment. With any investment you make you’ll want to take the time to ensure that your money is actually working for you. Fortunately, there are a lot of different ways in which your energy-efficient home will be working for you including providing you with a great ROI because your resale value will be higher, and of course you’ll also save money now since your energy costs are lower (less than what people with existing homes are currently paying by as much as half).
The reason you’ll be able to save so much money with your new home is that it’ll require you to use less electricity and gas to heat and cool your home. This is because your new home can retain the air better. Since your appliances will also work more effectively, you’ll be able to save even more money there. When you’re looking for a custom home builder be sure to look at all the ways they say your home will save you money.
It’s Good for Your Comfort
Florida’s climate is hot and humid but when you have an energy-efficient home you’ll only have to deal with the humidity when you go outside. Even when you’re dealing with Florida’s extreme weather you’ll remain safe and comfortable indoors.
