Why Choose a BUILT GREEN Home?
Each home we build at our Kelowna community, Winsome Hill, is certified as BUILT GREEN® for achieving its Gold Level of certification. This means homeowners at Winsome Hill will enjoy a wide variety of advantages and benefits, such as:
Smaller Energy Bills
Who doesn’t want to save money?! A BUILT GREEN® home can save you roughly 30% (and as much as 50%) in annual utility bills compared to a code-built home. Next to a mortgage, energy costs are the most significant household expense.
Healthy, Comfortable Homes
One huge benefit of an energy efficient home is the level of comfort the home offers. There is less temperature variation from room to room, the home is more airtight (which reduces drafts), and the home is better ventilated. BUILT GREEN® homes incorporate products that reduce the sources of indoor pollution, which is extremely beneficial to people with allergies and asthma.
Quality & Peace of Mind
Your quality is assured with a BUILT GREEN® home because they are randomly audited to ensure the home meets the program’s rigorous criteria. BUILT GREEN® builders use more durable materials throughout the home as well as materials that will reduce maintenance and replacement costs.
Did You Know?
Canada is the largest consumer of energy in the world on a per capita basis and the second largest producer of greenhouse gas emissions. A BUILT GREEN® home is not only more comfortable, healthy and energy efficient, it is the right thing to do for the environment.
