Green Building - Figtree Homes

With any interest in green building, energy efficiency is the place to start because the energy used in homes often comes from the burning of fossil fuels at power plants, which contributes to smog, acid rain, and risks of global warming. So, the less energy used, the less air pollution generated. Every Figtree Home is individually designed and modeled with the following features in mind to not only meet but exceed the Energy Star standard:

  • High Performance triple pane windows.
  • High Performance Insulation including Insulated concrete foundations Spray foam insulation on the roof decks and all rim joists.
  • Keeping the attic area and A/C ducts cool even in the heat of summer.
  • Efficient HVAC systems and air-tight construction techniques.
  • Efficient products including Energy Star qualified lights, refrigerators, and dishwashers.
  • Products made from recycled and renewable resources including recycled flooring and engineered lumber.

Figtree Homes commitment to Green Building saves our new owners and the environment all at a cost that is within reach for everyone.
