High Performance Homes
Exceptional livability. Exquisite, personalized design. Premium quality. That’s the hallmark of a Caldwell Home. In fact, Caldwell Homes, in partnership with Top Build Homes Services, are designed and built to perform at the highest level. Each home we custom build meets the extremely stringent Environments for Living ® Diamond level performance rating.
The Environments for Living ® program ensures each home is built with the latest techniques and technology for the utmost in durability, air quality, and energy efficiency. In addition, each home carries a 3-year heating and cooling and comfort guarantee. A high performing home not only costs less to maintain, but the quality of the construction adds long term value to your investment.
Critical components of this process include the following:
Framing – 2 x 6 inch framing lumber is used to create air barriers enclosing the conditioned space. We use ZIP Systems® sheathing to ensure air tightness. Each home’s air tightness will be measured with blower door test, administered by a third party.
Thermal Envelope – we use the latest spray foam insulation to produce the most insulated conditioned space possible. All windows will be low emissivity windows providing the best in energy efficiency while we seal all internal ducts to mitigate the risk of internal leaks.
In addition to meticulous framing and built-in air-tightness, each Caldwell Home comes standard with these energy efficient appliances:
Tankless Water Heaters – as much as 25% of your home energy use can come from heating water. Tankless water heaters typically use 20% less energy than standard gas appliances.
High efficiency sealed combustion natural gas furnace.
Right sized heating and air conditioning units for each plan to ensure the most effective comfort level at the best value.
Energy Star rated refrigerator and dishwasher standard (per community).
Carbon Dioxide detectors are installed to provide coverage for the living areas.
