Buying a townhome at The Oaks means that you’re one of the lucky few to live in a home that has earned the coveted EnergyStar® Certification. This means that you are guaranteed to live in the most energy efficient home on the market, saving you thousands in heating and cooling costs, while you remain comfortable all year round.
Here’s a list of some of the benefits associated with EnergyStar®:
Wall-to-Wall Comfort: You’ll see, feel, and hear the difference of a heating and cooling system that has been engineered and installed to efficiently deliver comfort.
Peace of Mind: At The Oaks each home is subjected to an independent inspection by a certified professional, so you can rest assured things were done right.
Enduring Quality: Value-adding energy efficiency means better resale value.
Proven Value: Here you’ll enjoy lower utility and maintenance costs. Homes earning the EnergyStar® label use 15-30 percent less energy than typical new homes.
Efficient Heating and Cooling Equipment: Higher efficiency equipment delivers premium performance, using less energy and reduced noise levels.
Whole–House Mechanical Ventilation: The living space in EnergyStar® certified homes has a constant source of filtered air to reduce indoor air pollutants in your home.
Air Sealing: By using less energy for heating, cooling, and water heating, EnergyStar® certified homes deliver approximately 20% savings on annual utility bills.
Properly Installed Insulation: Proper installation includes careful placement to eliminate gaps, voids, and compression. As well, complete air barriers prevent air from bypassing the insulation. This ensures consistent temperatures throughout the house, reduced energy use, and increased comfort.
High–Performance Windows: A very important component is the windows, which at The Oaks are oversized, Argon gas-filled, coated glass to ensure the indoor temperature is consistently comfortable.
These are just some of the reasons why retiring to a bungalow town home at The Oaks makes so much sense.
