If you could buy the new home of your dreams and at the same time save energy, improve indoor air quality for your family and help do your part for Mother Earth all while getting a great value, why wouldn't you? That's exactly the proposition Lee's Summit home builder Summit Custom Homes is offering today throughout communities in Blue Springs, Lee's Summit and Raymore.

"We call it the Green Advantage, and quite frankly, we wouldn't have it any other way", commented company founder and President Fred Delibero. "Each home we build is already packed full of today's most sought after new home features like hardwood flooring, extensive trim packages, designer kitchens and tiled spa master baths all at a tremendous value. Now, our home owners can enjoy all of the extra benefits that Green Building offers," he added.

Among the Energy Saving Features that Summit incorporates into each home are the use of advanced framing techniques that help insure a tighter building envelope with better insulating properties; vinyl thermal pane windows with low-e coating that help keep your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter; programmable thermostats that help reduce energy consumption; a wind and moisture barrier house wrap to keep moisture and drafts on the outside; and Energy Star rated bath and ceiling fans that run quieter and cost less to operate. All of these features add up to more money in your pocket by reducing energy consumption and lowering utility bills.

Homeowners also benefit from Healthier Indoor Air Quality. "We achieve better indoor air quality by incorporating centralized ducted return air systems reducing the spread of dust and allergens; using high-flow Energy Star rated bath exhaust fans; installing formaldehyde-free insulation products; using low V.O.C. (volatile organic compound) paints and sealants and installing an under slab vapor barrier in every home we build", Delibero added.

Summit Custom Homes together with their homeowners are also saving the planet, one house at a time. A Green Home is more energy efficient and has a smaller carbon footprint than other homes. Whenever possible, recycled and sustainable materials are incorporated into the homes while low VOC paints and sealants used don't pollute the environment. Summit uses advanced framing techniques that significantly reduce wood construction waste and they have comprehensive staging and erosion control practices that reduce damage to surrounding vegetation and control silt runoff.

In order to validate their hard work, every home built by Summit Custom Homes is inspected for compliance by an independent third party inspector to insure they meet the stringent standards of Energy Star and the NAHB Model Green Building programs so homeowners know it's done right, as promised.
