Delaware Residents Save on Their Energy Bills With New Green Homes
Fall temperatures can be unpredictable. Lingering summer heat can have you relying too much on your air-conditioning, while chilly nights have you cranking up the heat. You want to be comfortable, but you’re spending too much money and energy doing it. Why not try something different?
Since 2007, Insight Homes has been employing innovative and industry-leading techniques to make your next home a model of efficiency. A Delaware homebuilder, Insight constructs award-winning “green” single-family homes that are in the top 1 percent in the nation for energy efficiency. Each home not only offers features that create healthier air quality but also includes advanced construction techniques that add to the integrity and value of the home, such as:
- A tankless, on-demand hot-water heating system that saves up to 60 percent in energy costs
- A highly efficient gas furnace, converting 97 cents of every dollar spent into useful heat
- Energy Star appliances that use 20-30 percent less energy
- LED lighting that uses more than 80 percent less electricity
- Eight times less duct leakage than the average home
- High energy-efficient windows that block 93 percent of solar heat
- The most efficient air-conditioning unit available
- Dense-pack blown insulation that eliminates energy-wasting voids and air gaps
Insight Homes are so efficient that Insight Homes’ customers have received more rebates through the state-managed Delaware Green4Green program than all other builders customers combined.
In addition, all Insight Homes offer superior features for healthy and allergy-free living, such as ceiling fans, the MANABLOC manifold plumbing system, and MERV 13 air filters.
Anthony Patti is an Insight Homes convert who’s happy with his decision to go green. “The house is solid, quiet and comfortable—and for a price well below the competition,” he says. “Also, the neighborhood here at Cedar Ridge is a delight—a country mix with convenience for shopping—not to mention the close, but not too close, great beaches of Delaware. Wow, we feel like we have it all.”
