Happy Earth Week!

How are you getting into the Earth Day spirit this year?
Here at DB Homes we are constantly striving to do our part to be “Green Friendly” and it starts in how we build your home. Our homes regularly exceed the standards out in place by ENERGY STAR, a division of the Environment Protection Agency. Modular homes are by their very nature green. Assembly in an enclosed indoor environment contributes to reduced waste of material at the factory and at the job site, lessens the environmental impact on the land and the community where the house is being delivered and allows for a more energy efficient home. 

Energy efficient building methods and materials that DB Homes use include:

  • R-21 exterior wall insulation, R-38 blown-in ceiling insulation
  • Warm edge thermo-pane low-e glass windows
  • Insulated fiberglass exterior doors
  • High efficiency heating and cooling systems (including geothermal systems)
  • Insulated exterior wall headers
  • Whole house air infiltration wrap
  • Foam gaskets on all exterior wall outlets and switches

This is a DB Home that received a score of 51 on the HERS scale. The Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Index is the industry standard by which a home’s energy efficiency is measured. It’s also the nationally recognized system for inspecting and calculating a home’s energy performance. The U.S. Department of Energy has determined that a typical resale home scores 130 on the HERS Index while a standard new home is awarded a rating of 100. One significant feature of this home that helps it be so energy efficient is that it utilizes a geothermal heating and cooling system among many other energy efficient products.
