Why green building?
The main reason is to protect the environment and our resources. There are many environmental issues such as global pollution, dwindling fresh water supply and decreasing air quality. The second reason for building green is that it saves you money. Building green will also improve your home’s air quality, which helps you lead a healthy and long life.
Advantage Homes builds new green homes and townhomes in Frederick, Brunswick, and the Washington D.C area. Every green home in each of our communities are built for optimum energy efficiency: we call it the e+Advantage or 'Beyond ENERGY STAR®' standards. The e+Advantage elevates our homes beyond being just an ENERGY STAR builder. Each of our homes meet or beat standards for energy efficiency set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and are certified by a third party inspector. ENERGY STAR® certified green homes and townhomes built by Advantage Homes, in Maryland provide enhanced quality and energy savings.
