Another crucial green building feature occurs during construction of the custom home’s exterior envelope. The exterior envelope consists of a steel-reinforced structural foundation connected to a solid monolithic, steel-in-place, concrete wall system.

The custom home buyer selects features such as energy-efficient windows and doors, and an advanced roof system, including solar panels upon request. Controlling the environment cost-effectively inside the custom home requires a tight and sustainable exterior envelope.

New home buyers now agree that NuVision Builders is offering a strong and sustainable green building design.

One of the huge advantages custom home buyers achieve in a green building design is the application of high-density, spray adhesive foam insulation. Attic space never becomes super-heated as most conventional built homes. The insulation is sprayed onto the trusses and sheathing creating immense gripping power and the resulting rigid roof system.

The exterior heat in Florida never passes into the cool dry attic space as it does in the conventional built homes which use batt and blown-in insulation. Custom home buyers are encouraged to learn more about green building at the custom home website NuVision Builders.

Statistics show that home owners spend more than 90% of their time indoors. Indoor air quality is a crucial aspect of green building. In many home designs an increase in pollution occurs due to contaminants, allergens, and other air-borne particles leaking into the interior environment.

By sealing the entire exterior envelope green building offers fresh air exchange by mechanical ventilation systems while removing humidity to reduce interior moisture.

NuVision Builders utilizes an Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV) as part of the HVAC system. The ERV draws fresh outdoor air in while cleaning, cooling, and removing moisture from it before distributing it in the home through the HVAC system.

ERV significantly reduces energy demand on the HVAC system. Combined with a high-efficiency air purifier the ERV is very effective at expelling indoor air pollutants and providing highest indoor air quality (IAQ).
