Building a new home at Grove Manor is an exciting time! Choosing your home’s features, amenities and designer colors is often an anticipated part of the home buying process, as these selections provide enjoyment in your home every day. But what about what you can’t see? What lies behind the walls – your home’s infrastructure – is what really counts when it comes to lasting comfort and satisfaction. Most home buyers are familiar with many of our energy saving features – efficient windows and lighting, water-saving fixtures, and high-performance HVAC systems with programmable thermostats – all of which add up to valuable energy savings for homeowners. You can also read more about our innovative structural steel framing methodology here. However, you may not be familiar with all the key benefits of our StreetSmart Energy Package, so let’s take a closer look at two important components included in every Broadstreet Home.

Radiant Roof Sheathing

A radiant barrier, such as reflective insulation, reduces the level of heat that accumulates in your home’s attic, especially during the warmest months of the year. By reflecting heat away from your attic, the space stays cooler, and the amount of heat transferred to your living space is reduced. Reflective insulation keeps your home more comfortable and produces lower energy costs as well. During the winter months, radiant roof sheathing reduces heat transfer by keeping cold air out, while keeping heated air within your home. These benefits reduce energy usage and costs, and allow your HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) system to operate efficiently.

Air Infiltration System

No matter the weather outside, you want your new home to be comfortable – with consistency on each level and in every room. Broadstreet Homes developed a comprehensive air infiltration system that ensures your Grove Manor home operates at peak performance, by staying warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.Eliminating drafts and reducing the escape of the conditioned air inside your home avoids extremes that can tax an HVAC system. Air infiltration control also improves indoor air quality and reduces intrusion of noise, moisture and common pollutants such as pollen and dust.These benefits add up to real savings for homeowners – our Grove Manor homes can deliver a 20%-30% savings on annual utility costs, along with the added comfort you will enjoy.
