THE CEDAR WALK DIFFERENCE
Cedar Walk Homes go a step further than most by using the latest in green building techniques and materials. Yes, building green is a bit of an investment on our end, but we believe it's the right thing to do. We build for whole-house energy efficiency, start to finish, inside and out. This not only lowers the environmental impact of your home, but also lowers your monthly bills! Here are just a few of the differences you can expect at Cedar Walk.
GEOTHERMAL HEATING AND COOLING
Cedar Walk Homes use geothermal heat pumps for heating and cooling. Geothermal HVAC systems are recognized by the US Department of Energy as the most efficient heating and cooling systems available. Geothermal work in concert with the stable temperature of the earth to provide heating in the winter, and cooling in the summer. Using a underground piping system commonly referred to as a loop, water is circulated to exchange heat between your home and the earth. So while they cost a little more to install the first time (because of the geothermal loop), the payback period and return on investment can be rapid. In fact, geothermal systems are 400-600% more efficient and can cut your heating and cooling costs by up to 70%. To make things even better, homeowners with our geothermal heat pumps are eligible for a 30% tax credit!
SIERRA PACIFIC H3 ALUMINUM CLAD WINDOWS
Cedar Walk Homes are built with superior quality H3 windows by Sierra Pacific. These windows give the look of an old steel window with all the top performance of a modern technology. The H3 integrates three perfect materials extruded aluminum, vinyl, and wood into one perfect window. This patented Fusion Technology results in greater energy efficiency, enhanced aesthetics, and superior durability & leak resistance. It is also protected with a 30 year warranty.
CALI VINYL PRO PLANK FLOORING
Cedar Walk Homes use Professional-grade flooring that looks like wood while performing like an industrial-grade surface. Featuring a 20mil wear layer, this flooring is geared for commercial projects that demand 100% waterproof durability. Each plank is fortified by GeoCore®, a backbone of limestone composite that resists indentation and enables a stronger rapid locking system. Rest easy knowing this flooring is Low Emitting VOC and backed by a 50 year residential warranty!
Cedar Walk Homes use integrated LED recessed ceiling lights and LED designer fixtures throughout the whole home. These lights use 90% less power and last roughly 40 times longer than incandescent bulbs. This means you wont spend your days changing light bulbs or searching out that specialty bulb. Not to mention an approximate savings of at least $200 a year on your power bill!
