)-- Trinity Custom Homes is pleased to announce that they are taking great strides to becoming one of the “greenest” builders in the southeast. Their building methods and practices include utilizing some of the industry’s most energy-efficient products and resources. This dedication is not just to assist in the pursuit of building simply the best homes possible, but also to help reduce to total cost of ownership for their customers while doing their best to help heal the environment.
R Value Insulation
R Value is the rating system that applies to insulation. The higher the R Value, the more effective the insulation product is at lowering a home’s heating and cooling costs.
Trinity's homes feature R-19 wall insulation when combined with the ZIP system for an overall factor of R-22; R-19 insulation in the floors; R-38 insulation in flat ceiling installations, and R 8 insulation on ductwork. The use of these types of insulation helps Trinity build homes that are highly efficient and comfortable year-round.
Double Hung Low E Windows
A home’s energy efficiency has a lot to do with the quality of its windows. That’s why Trinity Custom Homes uses only Low E 450 series double hung windows. This type of window has been proven through independent studies to reduce heating costs by 16% and cooling costs by as much as 23%. Low E windows are specifically designed to keep warm air in during the winter and to reflect the sun’s rays in the summer.
ZIP System Exterior Sheathing
One of the most important “green” products used by Trinity Custom Homes is the innovative ZIP System® sheathing and tape. This advanced structural roof and wall system features an integrated water resistant air barrier that dramatically improves a home’s winterization. The result is a home that is more comfortable in every season. The home is also more energy efficient because the ZIP System® reduces the demand placed on the home’s heating and cooling system.
