Today, it is possible and practical to have it all --
a stronger, safer, smarter home while doing your part
for national energy independence and environmental protection. It’s a win-win situation for everyone -- now and for future generations.

If you have a home that is resource-efficient, durable, healthy, practical and convenient:

  • You don’t have to be a helpless victim of unstable energy prices or make a harmful impact on our environmental quality. Your new home can be earth friendly, affordable and comfortable.
  • Your home and life don’t have to be devastated by termites, hurricanes, floods, fire or decay. Your home can be built to resist damage and to last.
  • Your home doesn’t have to create barriers or harm your family’s health with mold and other indoor hazards. It can be healthy, safe and convenient.

When you build (or remodel), you have the power of choice. Combine that with research-based knowledge to take control of your investment and gain:

  • Lower utility bills
  • Greater comfort
  • Higher quality
  • Better health
  • Safety and security
  • Less maintenance and repair
  • Less storm damage; easy recovery
  • Environmental benefits
  • Increased market value
  • More time to spend as you please

Help Shape the Future

When you “build green,” you not only get a home that is earth-friendly and healthy, you are doing your part to help our nation and preserve our way of life for coming generations.

  • You are helping to reduce our dependence on foreign and non-renewable energy resources.
  • You are using science and technology to meet your own needs now with consideration for the needs of future generations.
  • You are joining in the vital “greening of America” and contributing to a sustainable future.
  • You are taking the lead in your community to make a real and meaningful difference.
