Key Attributes of a High-Performance House

By Stacy Mellete

One topic of interest among homeowners today is the benefits of owning a “high-performance or green house.” This is a residential home design that utilizes energy-efficient, sustainable, and eco-friendly products during construction.

In this entry, Affordable Roofing Systems discusses the top four attributes that make a high-performance house

Energy Efficiency

Your monthly utility bills tell you how efficient your home is in terms of energy use. Essentially, the more quality insulation you have, the lower your chances of paying high bills. As your trusted roofing contractor in Tampa FL, we offer several roofing options that guarantee an airtight enclosure for your home. This way, you can enjoy better savings on your energy costs each month.

Health Promotion

Respiratory problems from poor indoor air quality are a leading cause for emergency visits in the US. By upgrading green standards, you have fewer contaminants in your home. This significantly boosts the air quality and reduces the risk of health concerns for you and your family.

Weather Protection

The quality of the building materials will play a key role in determining how well your home can withstand the elements. Thanks to our partnership with leading brands in the industry, we provide the highest quality for stone coated and residential roofing in Tampa FL and its surrounding areas.

Disaster Resistance

After addressing these attributes, the next thing is to ensure that your green home can stand the test of time. You can do this by promoting proper disaster resistant construction practices in your home. These include:

  • Enhanced wind and impact resistance
  • Improved load capacity roofs without thermal bypasses
  • Better structural bracing in earthquake-prone regions
  • Elevated enclosures in flood risk zones
  • Adequate pest control measures

These measures will promote better peace of mind and save you on potential insurance expenses.
