Tamlin Builds Eco Friendly Green Homes Whenever We Have the Opportunity
As the homeowner of an eco-friendly home, you will enjoy a healthier, more durable home with a lower environmental impact, as well as the ability to choose which green features you want. Further eco-built homes are affordable with a reduction in monthly operating costs, rebates, and more.
Many green built homes use triple-paned windows, which, in addition to offering superior energy efficiency, offer substantial sound reduction from exterior sources: noise transmission is greatly reduced and insulation and air tightness is improved.
One of the most overlooked aspects of a sustainably built home is durability. The new homes built today will last for at least 100 years. We want to ensure that we aren’t building homes that need substantial renovation every five years. While renovating is costly, there is also an adverse effect on the environment, in terms of waste generated and energy consumed in the process.
One of the key deciding factors about constructing environmentally friendly buildings is the cost. Photo-voltaics, energy efficient appliances, and modern technologies such as geothermal energy will increase your budget. Adopting green technology in your home may add 3-10% or more in costs, however, the yield in operational savings is well worth it if you plan for the long term. Over 20 years, the financial payback typically exceeds the additional cost of greening by a factor of 4-6 times.
If you have been considering building a home that is green, please give us a call. We are happy to explain the different options available to you, and even show you some of the eco-friendly components in our show building.
Tamlin Head Office/Facility is an Eco-Friendly Building with GEOTHERMAL Energy!
Tamlin Homes even built our own office/factory using green technology. A Green building (also known as green construction or sustainable building) refers to a structure and process that is environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a building’s life-cycle. This requires close cooperation of the design team, the architects, the engineers, and the client at all project stages. Tamlin utililized energy efficient windows, geothermal energy, spray foam insulation, Roxul (rock wool insulation), low VOC paints and stains, a combination of engineered and solid structural components, recycled tile, and reclaimed hardwood flooring .
