Energy Savings Built Into Every Home
A TerraWise Home includes many energy efficient building products designed to save homeowners money by reducing their energy consumption that help lead to Net-Zero Energy Homes. Unlike many builders, TerraWise provides these kinds of building products in all its homes as standard Energy Saving Features.
HVAC, LED Lighting, Heat Pump Water Heater
High Efficiency HVAC Systems, low energy LED Lights, hybrid Heat Pump Water Heaters that generate cool air while using less electricity, are just some of the many unique products included.
High performance Low-E Windows with Argon gas
These specialty windows are created to neutralize the effects of changing weather on the inside of a home. They help keep a constant temperature longer so the air-conditioning and heating system doesn’t have to work as hard. Additionally, they are designed with multi-pane glass, which provides added protection against air leakage.
High Efficiency Foam Insulation
TerraWise Homes have non-ventilated insulated attics as a Standard Feature providing for tremendous energy savings. The walls and attic in a TerraWise Home are filled with spray foam insulation offering superior sealing and high R-Value that surpasses most other types of insulation products. Spray foam is applied to the attic rafters rather than the typical batts or loose fill insulation that lays on the attic floor over the ceiling. This creates an insulated attic where the air handler and other components of the HVAC system are located allowing for more energy efficiency. The attic also becomes a climate controlled storage area – where even chocolates won’t melt in the Florida heat.
Fiberglass Exterior Doors with Low-E Glass
All exterior doors on TerraWise Homes are constructed of fiberglass and installed with Low-E glass. These doors are designed for a tighter fit and high energy efficiency with the benefits of Low-E Glass where lighted doors are used. In addition, fiberglass doors offer low maintenance and are more durable against the wet and humid Florida elements.
Zip System Wall & Roof Sheathing
Zip is a one-of-a-kind structural roof and wall system with a built-in energy-efficient barrier that keeps moisture out and reduces air leakage. It has a built-in vapor permeable water-resistive barrier for a continuous, rigid air barrier that decreases unwanted air leakage for greater energy efficiency.
