Neighborhoods with Sustainable Houses Are Growing in Popularity

There’s a new trend in residential green home building: sustainable houses. These verified green housing communities are popping up in cities across the country. They are designed to reduce or eliminate reliance on traditional utilities, minimize the environmental impact of residential living and use natural and renewable energy sources to achieve self-sufficiency. Oftentimes, they are called Energy Efficient Homes, Net Zero Energy Homes or Positive Energy Homes. Most of these communities offer geothermal heating and cooling systems due to their inherent low energy consumption, high energy efficiency and clean, natural and renewable energy source.

The most popular features of sustainable houses are smart building designs, green building materials, rainwater harvesting systems, aerobic septic waste water systems, Energy Recovery Ventilators to improve indoor air quality, VOC-free paints, stains and finishes, ENERGY STAR® appliances, and energy efficient HVAC systems powered by qualified ENERGY STAR geothermal heat pumps.
