Green’s the way to a wiser, healthier future.
Nothing’s more valuable than the fragile natural beauty of our planet, and Avatar is widely recognized for its commitment to environmentally sustainable development – with particular emphasis on building green communities with energy-efficient homes. The good news is there are many advanced technologies now available to help us achieve this goal. And since they optimize energy consumption, many of these green building solutions are quite healthy for your wallet, too.
Even if you don’t choose to purchase one of our Avatar homes, we hope you’ll make Going Green a top priority wherever you live. While availability varies by location and state regulations in effect, here are some technologies we offer wherever feasible.
Energy Star™ labeled homes feature appliances, lighting and plumbing that can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by some 4,500 lbs per house/per year
Advanced non-toxic insulation materials can keep temperature extremes at bay, diminish noise and insect intrusion, and substantially reduce energy costs
Eco-friendly windows built with Low Emissivity (‘Low E’) glass and channeled vinyl frames keep heat out, let sunlight in, and offer high strength and stability
Radiant-barrier roof sheathing can keep attics and crawlspaces up to 30° cooler while still allowing moisture to escape for good roof health
High SEER air conditioning units will keep you comfortable, save you money, and keep the ozone healthier thanks to enviro-benign refrigerant
High-efficiency solar power systems can generate reliable power, provide hot water, and greatly reduce your environmental footprint and reliance on imported energy
