What Are the Benefits of Having an Eco Friendly Home?


Custom building a new home allows the opportunity for you to design the space in a way that is unique to you and your family, ensuring features and characteristics reflect your lifestyle. Customizing your home ensures your family has the space needed, total personalization, and superior quality. Along with these custom features, many families are turning to designing an eco-friendly home, and for good reason! Not only does building an energy efficient home save you money, but provides better quality health as well. So, what are the benefits of having an eco-friendly home?

Increased Efficiency Means Lower Utility Bills

Perhaps the most rewarding benefit of custom building an eco-friendly home as opposed to purchasing an older home, is the lower monthly utility bills. A high quality home provides better insulation, meaning less energy is needed for air conditioning and heating units. Investing in low wattage bulbs and energy saving appliances will save you money in the long run.

Increase Your Properties Value

One consideration to make note of is how designing an environmentally friendly home can increase the home value. Although you may not plan on moving in the near future, the demand for energy efficient homes is a trend that is here to stay.

Improving Quality of Life

Indoor air quality in a home is crucial to maintaining good health while improving quality of life. Overtime, poor indoor air quality can result in headaches, fatigue, breathing problems, and more. When building a custom home with Oberer Homes, we make it our highest priority to build with quality construction materials to ensure your home is safe.  

Doing Your Part for the Environment

More and more families are making an effort to help the environment. Investing in an energy efficient home does cut down on money, but also benefits the environment. Lower energy rates and water usage adds up over time, allowing your family to feel good about your decisions.
