Green Built in North Texas

What Is a Green-Built Home 

This website is for the climate zone that includes North Central Texas or the DFW area such as Plano, Keller, or Dallas-Fort Worth Texas.  Regardless of your climate zone, the first priority for green building or energy-efficient remodeling is to hire an energy consultant and a green builder who understand and use up-to-date green building practices for your area. 

A green-built home is certainly many features that point to a first-rate future down-sizing of your utility bills. A green-built home is more than green building, though. It can affect almost every aspect of construction.
  • A green-built home is energy-efficient. Energy-efficiency is the first feature of a green-built home.
  • A green-built home is healthy for you, your family, and the earth.. Health is a prime feature.
  • A green-built home is more comfortable. 
  • A green-built home will outperform traditional construction.
  • A green-built home is durable.
  • A green-built home is high performing.
  • A green-built home will outsell a home that is not energy-efficient. And the differences in sales prices will grow over time.

A green-built home is understood as one which is built using methods that conserve resources. It is sometimes hard to explain what makes a home a green-built one rather than any other kind.

There is no standard at this time. Time will ultimately decide what features will be in a green-built home. In the meantime, a lot of “greenwashing” will happen–particularly by home builders and home remodelers who push a house as green despite only minimal changes to traditional construction.

Green-built? It’s time is coming. 

If you are ready for a green-built home,carefully research the standards used by a builder before you contract with him/her.
