Energy Efficiency in Your Home—and Why You Want It


There are two principal reasons for building energy efficiency into your new home: superior comfort and lower monthly utility costs. A properly built home eliminates drafts, hot and cold spots, and all the other livability issues of the recent past. At the same time, the efficiency features that make your home more comfortable year-round also save you money by reducing your monthly utility costs.

When Russell Home Builders recommends a menu of products for your home (things like low-e windows, heat pump water heaters, ground source HVAC systems, super-insulated walls and attics, and safety-minded fresh air transfers), you can be sure you're getting the very latest in proven technology.

And if you want to go even further and step off the grid, Russell Home Builders is there to recommend the best ways to do it.
