    1. 1. Welcome to Teakwood Green Green Homes… Building for the Future E-300,Energy Star®,NAHB Green
    3. 3. <ul><li>WHAT IS GREEN BUILDING? </li></ul><ul><li>A design and construction process that promotes the health and productivity of the homeowners while increasing the homes energy efficiency. </li></ul><ul><li>Green buildings are designed, constructed, and operated to enhance the comfort and health of the homeowners ,reduce energy costs and protect the natural environment </li></ul><ul><li>Green building is the construction standard for the future and the smart solution for today. </li></ul>
    4. 4. <ul><li>WHY BUY A GREEN HOME ? </li></ul><ul><li>ENERGY SAVINGS . By increasing water and energy efficiency, a Green home can save thousands of dollars over the life of your home. </li></ul><ul><li>INDOOR AIR QUALITY . Improved air quality enhances overall health. Green homes reduce pollutants, and improve ventilation so your family can breathe easier. </li></ul><ul><li>LESS MAINTANANCE . Green homes are designed to minimize the amount of time and money required to maintain them. </li></ul><ul><li>PEACE OF MIND . Green homes are built with the environment in mind. Energy and water efficiency, reduced construction waste and the use of renewable materials, mean your home has less negative impact on the environment. </li></ul>
    5. 5. What are the benefits of Green Building? Higher quality Greater durability Greater comfort Lower utility bills Peace of mind BOTTOM LINE: ENERGY COSTS ARE RISING EFFICIENCY IS CRITICAL FOR OUR FUTURE!
    6. 6. Heating accounts for the biggest chunk of a typical utility bill. Source: 2007 Buildings Energy Data Book, Table 4.2.1., 2005 energy cost data How We Use Energy in Homes
    7. 7. Did you know? Green Features Save you $$$$$ <ul><li>The Appraisal Journal Cites a $20.73 Increase in Resale Value for every $1 in Annual Energy Cost Savings </li></ul><ul><li>Teakwood Green homes can save you 25%, $50/month or $600/year* </li></ul><ul><li>A conventional home utility bill averages $200/month. </li></ul><ul><li>A Teakwood Green home utility bill averages $150/ month </li></ul><ul><li>$600/year x $20.73 = $12, 438 Increase in Resale Value! </li></ul><ul><li>* Estimated savings </li></ul>
    8. 8. What exactly makes a Green Home? Green building improves the way that homes use energy, water and materials to reduce impacts on human health and the environment. Building a Green home means making environmentally-preferable decisions throughout the building process that will minimize the environmental impact of the home while it is being built and over the many years it will be lived
    9. 9. Effective Insulation Energy Efficient Windows Tight Construction and Ducts Efficient Heating and Cooling Equipment Third-Party Verification High- Quality Products . Key components of a Green Home
    10. 10. W&A Construction is enrolled in 3 Award -Winning Green Home Certification Programs
    11. 11. The E-300 was one of the first energy conservation programs in the Nation and the first municipal Energy Efficiency program in North Carolina. E-300-Certified by Greenville Utilities <ul><li>The E-300 Program ensures a healthy, comfortable environment for your family by: </li></ul><ul><li>Addressing indoor air quality : homes are built significantly airtight and properly ventilated . Build it tight and ventilate it right! </li></ul><ul><li>Advising on the most cost-effective technologies, materials, design and equipment for our region </li></ul><ul><li>A home built to E-300 standards is estimated to use 40% less energy than one built to minimum building requirements. </li></ul>
    12. 12. <ul><li>ENERGY STAR Homes include: </li></ul><ul><li>An Efficient Home Envelope -effective levels of wall, floor and attic insulation properly installed, comprehensive air barrier details, and high-performance windows </li></ul><ul><li>Efficient Air Distribution- ductwork is installed with minimum air leakage and effectively insulated </li></ul><ul><li>Efficient Equipment -for heating, cooling, and water heating </li></ul><ul><li>Efficient Lighting- including fixtures that earn the ENERGY STAR </li></ul><ul><li>Efficient Appliances- including ENERGY STAR qualified dishwashers, refrigerators, and clothes washers. </li></ul>ENERGY STAR® Certified by US EPA
    13. 13. <ul><li>This Green certification addresses key green construction areas including: </li></ul><ul><li>Lot & Site Development </li></ul><ul><li>Energy Efficiency </li></ul><ul><li>Water Efficiency </li></ul><ul><li>Indoor Environmental Quality </li></ul><ul><li>Homeowner Education </li></ul>NAHB Green The National Association of Home Builders is helping its members move the practice of Green building into the mainstream.
    14. 14. Behind the walls of a Green Home Tightly-sealed and well-insulated ducts keep you more comfortable and increase the energy efficiency of your home. Sealing also helps improve indoor air quality by reducing the risk of dust, moisture, pollen, pests, and noise from entering the ducts and circulating throughout your home.                                  
    15. 15. Insulating a ceiling and wall: All insulation works when it is installed properly and has no gaps, voids, or compressed areas Behind the walls of a Green Home
    16. 16. Behind the walls of a Green Home Well-sealed and properly insulated walls, ceiling, and floors help maintain even temperatures throughout the house and save you up to 40 % on heating and cooling costs. A tighter home also reduces the amount of humidity, dust, pollen, pests, and noise that can come inside .
    17. 17. Independent Testing and Inspection to Ensure Quality Construction E-300 , ENERGY STAR and NAHB Green qualified homes are inspected and tested by an independent Home Energy Rater to meet rigorous guidelines for energy efficiency. Home Energy Raters inspect insulation installation, perform tightness tests on the home's envelope and duct system, and ensure that all energy-efficient features and equipment are properly installed in your new home. Third Party Review Photo of Man Conducting Blower Door Test: A blower door test evaluates the leakiness of the house. Photo of Man Conducting Duct Blaster Test: A duct blaster test evaluates the leakiness of the duct system.
    18. 19. <ul><li>Green Building practices are more important now than ever. </li></ul><ul><li>Due to climate change, natural resource depletion, rising energy costs, pollution and its effects on health, our quality of life is being impacted . </li></ul><ul><li>The U.S. has only 4.5% of the world's population but contributes 25% of the world's carbon dioxide emissions - World Resources Institute </li></ul><ul><li>Most Americans spend over 90% of their time indoors, but indoor air pollutants are generally two to five times higher than outside air – EPA </li></ul><ul><li>The prevalence of asthma has doubled since 1976 - EPA </li></ul>Green building is the construction standard for the future and the smart solution for today.
    19. 20. How W&A takes it to the next level of Green Building
    20. 21. <ul><li>Energy Star appliances, lighting and ceiling fans </li></ul><ul><li>High efficiency HVAC systems </li></ul><ul><li>Low flow plumbing fixtures to conserve water </li></ul><ul><li>Sealed building envelope </li></ul><ul><li>Landscaping with native plant life </li></ul><ul><li>Low- E energy efficient windows </li></ul><ul><li>Low or no VOC(volatile organic compounds) paints and finishes </li></ul><ul><li>Optional solar hot water or solar electric systems </li></ul><ul><li>Use of native building materials </li></ul><ul><li>Radiant barrier sheathing </li></ul><ul><li>Tax credits available to the homeowner </li></ul><ul><li>* some items optional </li></ul>How W&A takes it to the next level
    22. 23. OPTIONAL SOLAR HOTWATER HEATING Energy Savings By installing a solar water heating system, a typical household can meet 50 to 80 percent of their hot water needs.
    23. 24. Solar Hot Water NC Cost Example <ul><li>$6,000 installed system </li></ul><ul><li>35% NC tax credit equals ($2,100) $1,400 </li></ul><ul><li>30% Federal tax credit equals $1,800 </li></ul><ul><li>But you must pay federal taxes on NC tax credit so (assuming 30% tax bracket) you owe 30% times $1,400 (= $420) in taxes </li></ul><ul><ul><li>------------------------------------------------------------ </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Cost of system to you: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>$6,000 - $1,400 - $1,800 + $420 = $3,220 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Annual Savings (electric WH) = $175 to $300 </li></ul></ul>
