Energy Efficiency Part 1: Built Healthier

February 19, 2020

At New Tradition Homes, we know that when your home is built healthier, your life becomes healthier. That’s why we guarantee to build our contemporary homes to today’s highest standards of energy efficiency, keeping you and your family comfortable year-round while saving you money and protecting the environment. 

For the past 30 years, we’ve prioritized “the art of better living,” because our expert team believes that your home shouldn’t just be built for today and tomorrow — it should be built for life. From natural gas fireplaces to insulation and safe paints, take a look at the features we include to ensure your well-being and happiness.

Energy-Efficient, New Home Features

  • 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.
  • 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, run within the insulated area of your home, reducing heating and cooling loss and saving money on utilities.

When you feel great in your home, that peace of mind and confidence extends to all areas of your life. After all, home should be the safest and most comfortable place in the world, which is why New Tradition Homes takes your health and happiness seriously. 

We’re proud to say that all of our living spaces are ENERGY STAR® and Built Green Washington® third-party tested and certified, which means they’re at least 15% more efficient than typical “code built” homes. By creating healthier indoor air, reducing allergens, and so much more, our durable homes guarantee that you and your family get to live your best (and most comfortable) lives. 

But that’s not all! Stay tuned for the next part in our blog series, where we’ll talk about our built green promise. We look forward to shining more light on how extraordinary our new homes in Washington are, and how they’ll positively impact your life for years to come.

NTH is very organized and delivers a top quality product which they stand behind. We were allowed to customize many features of our home to make it function the way we wanted it to. The flexibility allowed was great. It took a little longer than some other builders, but the end result was worth the wait.
