At New Tradition Homes, our approach to building is all about smarter, healthier living. That’s why all NTH homes are certified 100% ENERGY STAR® and built with your well-being in mind.
New Tradition Homes have healthier indoor air, reducing allergens, increasing comfort and giving you peace of mind for your family.
Sealed combustion natural gas fireplaces draw out and exhaust all combustion air to the outside, maintaining good indoor air quality.
All paints inside and outside the home are low VOC (volatile organic compounds).
Insulation used in the floors, walls and attic is Greenguard certified non-toxic.
The furnace and the water heater in the home are “sealed combustion” meaning they only draw combustion air from the outside. This also helps eliminate the chances of carbon monoxide entering the home
High-efficiency furnace air filters filter out dust, pollen and particles creating a healthier indoor environment.
Prior to the installation of drywall, a moisture test is conducted on the framing members to reduce moisture within the walls.
Ducts inside the conditioned space, the ducting of your heating/cooling system runs within the insulated area of your home reducing heating and cooling loss and saving money on utilities.

This was our first time building a home. Our experience couldn’t have gone any smoother. New Traditions has made the process so easy and stress free. The customer service we received during building, closing, and then recently at our two year check in was excellent. I can’t recommend enough.
