Is having more insulation better? Think about it this way - if you hiked on a hot summer day with a shirt but no hat you would still burn! Insulation starts with a delicate balance of temperature inside the walls of your home. If there is too much insulation, air is unable to leave the home, resulting in an uncomfortable climate. Yet if your house is not significantly insulated, it is very easy to lose cooling in the summer. So in insulating your new Fairway West home many factors contribute to keeping the temperature comfortable as well as being energy efficient! In the end more is not better if it is done wrong- here is the package to keep your home protected from the elements:
Air sealing the house-
We do this to make sure there are no leaks that allow the summer heat to come into your home making your air conditioner work harder, significantly raise your energy bill and making your house uncomfortable. Some builders do not do this at all. Some use caulk that is subject to fail not to mention can smear or be installed improperly. Ask about using rubber gasket for a better air sealed house!
Good quality windows-
Our windows are SuncoatMAX Milgard Windows that have a Low-E Film and Argon Gas filled! What does that mean? Taking advantage of natural light without affecting the comfort of your Fairway West home as well as keeping heating or cooling costs at a minimum by blocking the heat from coming into your home!
Heat pumps offer an energy-efficient alternative to furnaces and air conditioners. Like your refrigerator, heat pumps use electricity to move heat from a cool space to a warm space, making the cool space cooler on those 100 degree days and the warm space warmer in the winter!
Your house needs to breath! Just like our bodies proper interior ventilation is vital to your family’s health and comfort. The use of fans helps your home rid itself of moisture, smoke, cooking odors, and indoor pollutants. Structural ventilation controls heat levels in the attic, moderate’s dampness in the crawlspace and basement, and keeps moisture out of uninsulated walls.

In taking care and consideration in all these areas your Reality home can be comfortable no matter what season we are in! May we make your dreams a Reality!
