THE VISION LIVING GREEN NEIGHBORHOODS OUR PROCESS QUALITY ASSURANCE ENERGY STAR EARTH ADVANTAGE

 



Our commitment is to build homes that are ENERGY STAR ® & Earth Advantage compliant and have less impact on our environment, while providing benefits to the homeowner such as lower energy bills and a healthier living environment. We use top quality materials and processes to ensure that your new home provides you with long lasting value and durability.

 

Since becoming a trade ally for ENERGY STAR® and Earth Advantage programs we've come to realize the many benefits of these construction methods. We view construction of your home as a holistic process with each system we install working in conjunction with the other systems. Starting from the foundation up we take many extra measures to waterproof the building shell ensuring that the home will shed water rather than it being trapped in tightly built wall cavities causing issues such as dry rot and mold. Unwanted air intrusion is significantly reduced by properly sealing of all penetrations and careful installation of insulation. Our HVAC subcontractors provide innovative solutions with their knowledge of HVAC design, air quality products, state certified sealed ducts and high efficient equipment, systems feature sealed ducts and high quality components. We also measurably ventilate our homes with filtered fresh outdoor air. Creating a much better indoor air quality VS a standard code built home.

If you are chemical sensitive we can paint your home with low VOC (volatile organic compounds) paints and specify low VOC finishes and adhesives be used during construction. We specify at least 50% of our lighting use energy efficient bulbs and we
use ENERGY STAR® rated appliances.

All homes must pass 3rd party independent performance tests to achieve the ENERGY STAR® & Earth Advantage certification. At Vision Homes, we believe this makes our homes superior to homes constructed using the basic building code model of construction.
