Artisan is Energy Conscious

Thumb At Artisan Construction we feel the best way to save money in the long run is a well-built home. At Artisan we use several different methods of the latest home construction techniques to accomplish energy efficiency. Our homes include the following:

Insulation – Properly installing insulation in walls, attics and floors creates increased comfort by insuring even temperatures throughout our homes. There are several different ways to insulate your home, batt insulation, BIB system and Full Foam insulation. We install the BIB system in most of our homes because we believe it is the best quality for the investment. We insulate all of our attics to an R-38.

High-Performance Windows — With more than 20 years of experience installing windows through our Remodeling Company, we know that energy efficient windows are a top priority for our customers. We use the highest quality vinyl windows with Low E and Argon gas to insure that your home is as comfortable in the winter as in the summer. Our multi- chamber energy efficient vinyl windows have ¾ inch of air space between the glass so that the heat and cold will not transfer into the house.

Quality Construction - While most companies are still using house-wrap, we believe that the Zip wall system is better. ZIP System wall sheathing’s built-in water resistant barrier keeps bulk water out during and after construction. We install the panels and tape the seams for a code-recognized structural panel, water-resistive barrier and air barrier all-in-one.

  1. Won’t blow off, tear or require rework like house-wrap.
  2. Specially engineered to allow moisture vapor to travel through the panel, allowing walls to breathe and dry out.
  3. No risk of water becoming trapped between house-wrap and sheathing, which could result in moisture-related issues.

Energy Efficient Heat and Air - In addition to using less energy to operate, energy-efficient heating and cooling systems will reduce indoor humidity, run more quietly and improve the overall comfort of the home.

  1. We start by sealing all ducts with mastic sealant or metal (foil) tape to seal all the vents, registers, and ducts.
  2. We use R-8 Ducts.
  3. We also install all of our units to Energy Star Standards.

Lighting and Appliances - Artisan homes are also equipped with proven energy efficient products such as lighting fixtures, compact fluorescent bulbs, ventilation fans, and appliances. These energy efficient products provide additional energy savings to the homeowner for the life of the fixtures.

Third-Party Verification - Our Home Energy Raters conduct onsite testing and inspections to verify energy efficiency performance levels. Artisan Construction has chosen the most appropriate energy-saving features for its customers’ homes.
