Better Living Through Conservation
Green certified buildings are high-performance homes. At Wilder, we encourage buyers to work with our builders to explore the benefits of Earth Advantage certification, because we know that means the use of fewer resources will minimize their footprint on the land. Sustainable building practices, techniques and technologies enable the builder to conserve vegetation, materials and energy, while the home or building itself allows occupants to conserve and use resources wisely to save money and the environment.
Sustainable construction practices and the use of environmentally responsible and durable products helps reduce the quantity of materials necessary to maintain a certified structure over its lifetime, which will generally be longer than that of a conventional structure.
A certified structure uses water-wise technologies that lower utility bills and reduce the total amount of water needed to maintain a comfortable lifestyle.
Green development practices used during the construction of a sustainably built home decrease land degradation and deforestation, promote healthy landscapes, reduce waste, and prevent potential erosion associated with lot development.
A certified home’s reduced energy needs will result in fewer carbon emissions and require less fossil fuel.
Indoor air plays a major role in overall health and lifestyle. These homes contains fewer products that off-gas harmful chemicals. They also incorporate a ventilation and filtration system that reduce airborne contaminants, diminishing the chances of allergies, asthma, and other more serious health risks.
