Why build a custom energy-efficient new home?

Lots of people are going green when building a custom energy-efficient new home. But why is it so important? Building homes that are energy efficient and environmentally conscious is becoming more and more important to buyers from both a climate change and money perspective. While employing green practices and energy efficiency when building might cost a little more during construction, they will pay off over the lifetime of your home. 

Reducing your carbon footprint.

You may also have heard of energy-efficient homes referred to as high-performance homes. High-performance homes include certain features. They produce a smaller carbon footprint than an average home, are built with eco-friendly materials, leverage energy-efficient appliances, and provide robust air quality.

Excellent building materials create excellent homes.

To achieve a healthy interior environment, high-performance homes require excellent workmanship and building materials. These demands dovetail with those of healthy home design: natural materials and ample open space can support homeowners’ mental and physical health. Paradigm Homes is proud to provide these high-quality materials and a design process that’s second to none to create a high-performance home you’ll love.

An investment that pays off.

Cutting-edge features deliver value for eco-friendly concerns. Smart home technology and renewable energy sources not only increase home efficiency and lower energy bills but also mitigate homeowners’ carbon footprint. The sustainability design trend fits nicely within the high-performance model.

Building the North Stafford Street project.

One of Paradigm Homes’ current projects in Arlington, Virginia, on North Stafford Street, takes all of these needs into consideration. This home is a great example to give you an idea of what Paradigm builds because these customers spared no expense and built a truly incredible home customized just exactly how they wanted it. 

Partnering with our clients for the best outcome.

The clients for this build on North Stafford Road are experts on climate change and energy efficiency in both their professional and personal lives, so they are very passionate about this project. These clients truly became partners with Paradigm on the energy-efficient choices being made for their homes. Their expertise was put to good use! They are changing all the gas to electric in their new home. This is a large undertaking, but was important to them and will pay off in the future. There is potential for a solar roof down the road, further reducing their carbon footprint and leveraging renewable energy sources.
