Many people associate a custom green home in the Highland Village or Flower Mound areas as one that’s more energy efficient, sustainable, high performing, etc. While all of these things are certainly perks of owning a green home, there is one aspect that doesn’t get talked about enough: that those who own custom green homes enjoy health benefits as well. At Bud Bartley Custom Homes, we want those who are thinking of building a custom home to understand the advantages of “going green.”
There are many chemicals, compounds, and substances that go into the building of a home that most people are not aware of – substances that can be toxic over time, or lower the quality of indoor air. These things include paints that are not low- or no-VOC (volatile organize compounds), carpets, wall board, and other materials that may “out gas,” or even heating/cooling systems that do not do an effective job of removing excess moisture from the air, which can result in mold or mildew. Ultimately, as trusted Flower Mound green custom home builders our expertise in moisture control, the toxicity of certain materials, and ventilation mean your family enjoys a healthier home, one with fresher air and without toxic chemicals or pollutants that can lead to everything from aggravated allergies and asthma to cancer.
We make every effort to avoid using materials in the building process that are known to be health risks. The construction techniques we use make it possible for you to enjoy a well-insulated, comfortable home that is free of air leaks while still making it possible for your home to breathe. Proper ventilation is essential; without it, the indoor air homeowners breathe is more polluted than the air outdoors!
