Energy Efficient Features in Your Boone Home—Building for a Sustainable Future

August 16, 2023

Throughout our years in the industry, our team at Boone Homes has always made it our priority to build high-quality homes while keeping energy efficiency top of mind. By choosing to purchase an energy-efficient home from our team you will not only contribute to reducing your carbon footprint throughout the world, but you will also enjoy significant long-term savings on your homeownership costs. Our dedication to quality and sustainability at Boone Homes sets us apart, and we believe that our homeowners deserve nothing less, so read on to see all of the green benefits you’ll receive from purchasing your new Boone home.

Improved Energy Savings

One of the primary benefits of integrating energy-efficient features into your home is the significant reduction to your energy consumption. The technologies that our team uses such as LP® TechShield® Radiant Barrier Sheathing can block up to 97% of radiant heat transfer, while results in cooler attics and makes you less dependent on air conditioning during the hot summer months. The tight thermal envelope and OX-IS Exterior Sheathing ensure that energy loss through air infiltration and thermal bridging is minimized, maintaining a consistent and comfortable interior temperature with less reliance on heating and cooling systems. 

Lower Utility Bills

With reduced energy consumption also comes lower utility bills. Energy efficient HVAC systems, like the Trane HVAC system used in our Boone homes are designed to optimize sizing and energy usage, resulting in reduced energy consumption and, consequently, lower monthly utility bills. Additionally, the installation of Rinnai Condensing Tankless Water Heaters means that homeowners will no longer be wasting energy on heating or maintaining a large tank of water. These tankless water heaters also provide hot water on-demand, leading to substantial savings over time for Boone homeowners to take advantage of. 

Enhanced Comfort

The energy-efficient features we use throughout our Boone homes also contribute to a more comfortable living space for our homeowners. The combination of LP TechShield sheathing, tight thermal envelope and Low-Emissivity 366 Glass windows ensures better insulation and temperature regulation throughout the year. Say goodbye to drafts, hot spots and cold corners, as these features maintain a consistent indoor temperature and reduce the need for constant adjustments to the thermostat.  

Environmental Benefits

Choosing energy-efficient features also means reducing your carbon footprint and contributing to a greener planet. By consuming less energy, your Boone home releases fewer greenhouse gasses and decreases its overall environmental impact. Supporting sustainable building practices and using energy-efficient appliances, such as the Rinnai Condensing Tankless Water Heater, reflects a commitment to environmental stewardship and a cleaner future. 

Improved Air Quality

The emphasis on indoor air quality is another advantage of our energy-efficient homes at Boone Homes. Engineered framing materials and Low VOC paints help maintain healthier air quality by minimizing the release of harmful chemicals into your living spaces. Additionally, the presence of PVC pipes facilitates the future installation of radon mitigation systems if needed, ensuring that your home remains a safe and healthy place for you and your loved ones. 

Building a Better Future

When you choose to purchase a Boone home, you’re not only investing in a beautiful and comfortable living space—you’re investing in a sustainable future. Our energy efficient features, from LP® TechShield® Radiant Barrier Sheathing to Trane HVAC Systems and Low-Emissivity 366 Glass, are carefully selected to maximize energy efficiency and reduce environmental impact. Building with Boone Homes means building with a dedication to quality, sustainability and your long-term satisfaction, and we can’t wait to help you on your journey to your new home.
