High-Performance Green Homes by Dominion Custom Homes
Dominion Custom Homes is committed to reducing your new home’s environmental impact while providing the highest levels of energy efficiency and performance, making your new custom home more comfortable and reducing your monthly energy costs by up to 30%.
Dominion Custom Homes builds each high performance custom home to meet the different EarthCraft House and EasyLiving Home program specifications – producing a home that is green, welcoming and saves energy.
Dominion Custom Homes’ Green Homes meet the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s guidelines for energy efficiency. These homes are typically 20-30% more efficient than standard homes because they include the following additional energy-saving features:
Effective insulation ensures even temperatures throughout the house
High-Performance WindowsHigh-performance windows keep the house warm in the winter, cool in the summer and block ultraviolet rays that cause carpeting to fade
Tight Construction & DuctingTight construction and ducts reduce drafts, moisture, dust, pollen, and noise
Efficient HVACEfficient heating & cooling equipment is quieter, reduces indoor humidity & improves overall comfort
Efficient Lighting & AppliancesEnergy efficient lighting products & appliances save money on utility bills
The EarthCraft House program is a voluntary green building program that serves as a blueprint for healthy, comfortable homes that reduce utility bills and protect the environment. Dominion Custom Homes homes earn the EarthCraft designation because the company’s builders are trained to follow the program’s technical requirements.
Owners of a Dominion Custom Homes custom home enjoy the convenience and peace of mind that an EasyLiving Home designation brings since it is based on the principles of easy access, easy passage and easy use:
Step-Free EntranceStep-free entrance into home provides easy entry for small children, friends or family needing mobility aids, and easy transport of luggage or strollers
Wider DoorwaysWider doorways provide easier access to all living spaces, and improved ability to move furniture or carry bulky articles, such as laundry baskets
Main Floor LivingBedroom, kitchen, entertainment area, & bathroom are all located on the main floor providing fewer trips up and down stairs, and greater comfort for those with mobility issues or serious medical conditions
At Dominion Custom Homes we believe building a home should be a positive experience for our clients throughout the entire process. We’ve developed and implemented these home building guidelines with a singular goal in mind – to exceed your expectations!
