LEED certified homes save 30% to 60% more energy than non-green certified homes, conserve water resources, and generate less waste. Simply put, they’re better for the community and the environment.
Homes that are certified through LEED for Homes incorporate safe building materials and are designed to promote better indoor air quality — in turn promoting better human health.
Efficiency and health enhancing features together create a home that is more comfortable to live in.
LEED certified homes command a higher resale value, attract homebuyers and renters, and cost less to operate.
