Exterior Green Home Products

In this edition of our newsletter, we feature a home design from our exclusive line of ENERGY STAR® floorplans, energy efficient homes that incorporate green building techniques and eco-friendly products. Here are a few ideas for making your home green on the outside too.
Recycled Composite Decking Systems

MoistureShield® makes decking material from 95% pre-and post-consumer recycled content. Their Vantage Collection™ strikes a perfect balance between performance and cost. Available in 8 weathered shades from walnut to terracotta, the planks are fully reversible and offered in a variety of lengths to suit your project. MoistureShield products are moisture-resistant and come with a limited lifetime warranty.
Solar Shingles Save on Electricity

The Sun Energy Shingle™ from BIPV is designed to integrate with traditional asphalt shingle roofs. These shingles offer all the advantages of solar panels without the inherent problems, such as debris collection that can be a fire hazard or installation holes that are potential sources of leaks down the road. Solar shingles can save on electricity costs immediately and homeowners receive a 30% tax credit from the Federal government.
Outdoor LED Flood Lighting

Outdoor flood lighting can create a stunning visual effect. Now lighting manufacturers such as GE® offer ENERGY STAR® rated LED flood lights that are long-lasting and low energy. Use flood lighting to enhance the outdoor beauty of your home while enhancing security. This GE flood light lasts an incredible 22+ years or 25,000 hours.
Model: GE 90-Watt Equivalent Indoor/Outdoor LED Flood Light Bulb | MSRP: $59.98
Put a Damper on Energy Waste

Your fireplace can be a great focal point in your living room where you gather with family and friends to relax. Just make sure your fireplace isn't costing you money. An energy-saving damper — like a Lyemance Lock-Top rubber gasket damper — will ensure your chimney remains tightly sealed, keeping warm air in and cold air out.
Model: Lock-Top Energy-Saving Damper | MSRP: $150-$200
