Cutting costs is on everyone's mind these days. Who wants to spend their hard earned money on too high and continually rising energy and other utility costs, if it could be avoided? And who, in this day and age of dwindling resources, wants to waste electricity, fossil fuels, water, or any other commodity? If these are issues that interest you, Denver home builders have those same issues in mind when we construct our dwellings.
Denver new home builders are now thinking about energy efficiency when we plan the designs for our homes, and incorporating these new ideas and new technologies when we build them. "Choosing the right insulation, heating solutions, lighting, and appliances can reduce your carbon footprint and your energy bills. Your investments in energy efficiency will not only make your home warmer and more comfortable to live in - the added value will make it more attractive to potential buyers or tenants." (www.fpb.co.nz)
Denver Home Builders are using green, cutting edge technologies such as 3-zone heating and cooling trunks, solar panels that are fully connected to your local energy utitilty, and refrigeration appliances which " utilize technology that adapts to your daily usage, saving you precious energy. Cooling and defrosting is done only according to your lifestyle; the refrigerator will even know when you are on holiday." (www.fpb.co.nz)
If you're interested in lowering water consumption, you'll be pleased to hear that Denver Home Builders use only low flow shower heads and restrictors and dual flush cisterns in their bathrooms. What about the laundry room? Every building constructed by Denver Home Builders comes with the latest in high efficiency washing machines.

Then there's the kitchen, a place where water wasting is common. The dishwasher in your Denver new home will help you save money. Here's how it works. The dishwashers installed by Denver home builders have a "drawer format (that basically) combines two dishwashers into one, allowing you to run genuine half loads. Only the necessary energy and water is used each wash." (www.fpb.co.nz) Now, you can wash your dishes when you need to, without sending water, energy and money right down the drain.
