Potential Benefits:
LEED Platinum
- Energy savings are equal to over half a ton of averted CO2
- Annual Built Green Savings Equals: Production equivalent to 13+ solar panels

Solar 4+ kW
- Eco-friendly (reduces greenhouse gas emissions)
- Average 10%-30% leased & between 40%-70% owned less grid energy use. Going solar reduces greenhouse gas emissions, which contribute to climate change, and also results in fewer air pollutants like sulfur dioxide and particulate matter, which can cause health problems.

Indoor LED lights (whole house)
- Replacing just 5 of your home’s most frequently used light bulbs with ones that have earned the ENERGY STAR label, can save you up to $75 in annual energy costs. Or $6.25 per month. Average home has 50 light bulbs. If 40 were changed, that would be 8 times the savings.

Water Filter System
- Health benefits (filters out unsafe chlorine and other unsafe chemicals)
- Eco-friendly (reduce water bottles in the landfill and oceans)
- There were 50 Billion plastic water bottles bought in the U.S last year. However, only 38% were recycled, with the remainder ending up in landfills. With a home water filtration system, you will not be adding more rubbish into landfills. On the average, it will take 450 years for plastic bottles to disintegrate. We're now at a million plastic bottles/minute - 91% of which are not recycled. Excessive chlorine levels can be highly dangerous, and even safe levels of chlorine can have unhealthy side effects such as drying out the skin. it will remove most of the chlorine, what’s left of the sediment, any volatile organic compounds (VOCs), along with the foul smells and tastes from the water. Some manufacturers impregnate a small amount of silver in the carbon filter to give it an antibacterial capacity. filter will remove what’s left of the chlorine, heavy metals, and it also has a good effect on bacteria and other microorganisms usually found in the water. The filter also does a pretty good job at diminishing the scale in the water.

Water efficient bathroom faucets
- Eco-friendly (saves approximately 20% water. WaterSense bathroom sink faucets save 30%+ water)
- Saves approximately 2700 gallons of water/yr avg family WaterSense showerheads, 700 gallons of water/yr avg family WaterSense faucets. If every home in the United States replaced existing faucets and aerators with WaterSense labeled models, we could save nearly $1.2 billion in water and energy costs and 64 billion gallons of water across the country annually—equivalent to the annual household water needs of more than 680,000 American homes.

Water efficient toilets
- Eco-friendly (save between 20%-60% in water)
- 20%-60% water saved. Nationally, if all old, inefficient toilets in the United States were replaced with WaterSense labeled models, we could save 520 billion gallons of water per year, or the amount of water that flows over Niagara Falls in about 12 days.

Tankless, gas water heater (whole house)
- 10%-15% energy saved. If all residential gas tankless water heaters sold in the United States were ENERGY STAR certified, the energy cost savings would grow to $215 million each year, and nearly 1.8 billion pounds of annual greenhouse gas emissions would be prevented, equivalent to the emissions from 160 thousand vehicles.

Zoned Systems
- Zoning the heating system can save homeowners up to 30 percent on a typical heating and cooling bill, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. Because heating and cooling accounts for more than 40 percent of an average household's utility costs, the savings from a zoned system can really add up.

Bathrooms Vents, ENERGY STAR rated
- ENERGY STAR certified ventilation fans use 50% less energy than standard models.

No Tropical Wood Used
- Eco-friendly (Not using tropical woods for finishes prevents the decline of the rainforest, the extinction of animal species, reduces climate change impacts)
- The decline of the rainforest has already driven many animal and plant species to extinction. There are countries, where as much as 70% of the felled wood originates from illegal sources. Efficient protection of rainforests would be one of the most important tools to curb climate change. (IPCC) estimates that 20% of the world's carbon dioxide emissions result from logging in the rainforest.

Little to No Off-Gassing Materials
- Health benefits (materials with little to no off-gassing deter associated health issues such as sore throat, headaches, allergy symptoms, respiratory problems, heart disease and cancer)

Eco-Friendly Interior Wood Materials
- Eco-friendly (responsibly sourced hardwood comes from well-managed forests and recycled finishes reclaim waste materials)

Zero VOC Paint
- Improved air quality (reduced off-gassing and associated harmful effects)
- The rise in energy efficient, well-sealed buildings has compounded these problems, as VOCs are accumulated within buildings with no way of escape.

Natural Flooring
- Health benefits (fewer toxins, and cork has antimicrobial, insect repellent and fire inhibitor properties)
- Eco-friendly (reduce the use of hardwoods)
- Cork's thermal properties are so strong, it is used as wall insulation, and it's a good choice for basements, bedrooms and anywhere else cold floors pose a problem. Cork also absorbs sound.

Green Label Flooring
- Health benefits (ensure low emitting toxins)

Natural Carpeting
- Health benefits (improves indoor comfort and climate)
- Eco-friendly (created from renewable raw materials and does not use fossil resources)

Other Eco Interior Material
- Health benefits of urea-formaldehyde free (reduce carcinogenic exposure)

Gas Stove
- Natural gas costs less than electricity, and where that's the case, a gas stove typically costs 10% to 30% less to operate on an ongoing basis. According to the California Energy Commission, a gas stove will cost you less than half as much to operate as an electric stove, assuming you are using the spark ignition system.

Energy Star rated Refrigerator
- Eco-friendly (reduces greenhouse gas emissions, equivalent to 870,000 vehicles)
- If all refrigerators sold in the United States were ENERGY STAR certified, the energy cost savings would grow to nearly $700 million each year and 9 billion pounds of annual greenhouse gas emissions would be prevented, equivalent to the emissions from more than 870,000 vehicles.

Energy Star rated Dishwasher
- Eco-friendly (reduces air pollution, combats climate change and aids in water resource conservation)
- Approximately 65 percent of U.S. electricity is generated by burning coal and natural gas, which releases greenhouse gases and other air pollutants into the atmosphere, contributing to climate change and air quality problems. ENERGY STAR certified dishwashers use less energy than conventional models, which helps reduce air pollution and combat global climate change. By reducing water consumption, ENERGY STAR certified dishwashers also help protect our lakes, streams, and oceans.

Energy Star rated Clothes Dryer:
- If all clothes dryers sold in the US were ENERGY STAR certified, Americans could save more than $1.5 billion each year in utility costs and prevent greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those from more than 2 million vehicles.

Recycled on-site concrete
- Eco-friendly (reduces landfilled materials and virgin aggregate extraction).
- Recycling concrete provides sustainability several different ways. The simple act of recycling the concrete reduces the amount of material that must be landfilled. The concrete itself becomes aggregate and any embedded metals can be removed and recycled as well. As space for landfills becomes premium, this not only helps reduce the need for landfills, but also reduces the economic impact of the project. Moreover, using recycled concrete aggregates reduces the need for virgin aggregates. This in turn reduces the environmental impact of the aggregate extraction process. By removing both the waste disposal and new material production needs, transportation requirements for the project are significantly reduced. Recycled concrete aggregates absorb a large amount of carbon dioxide from the surrounding environment. The natural process of carbonation occurs in all concrete from the surface inward. In the process of crushing concrete to create recycled concrete aggregates, areas of the concrete that have not carbonated are exposed to atmospheric carbon dioxide.

ENERGY STAR Windows
- Eco-friendly (reduce energy use and energy associated greenhouse gas emissions)
- With more efficient windows, you also use less energy, which reduces greenhouse gas emissions from power plants and homes. 1,006–6,205 pounds of CO2/yr when replacing single-pane windows, 246–2,001 pounds of CO2/yr when replacing double-pane clear glass windows

Large Shade Trees
- 15%-50% energy savings due to reduced air conditioning use

Maintained Mature Trees
- All trees are sensitive to root disturbance caused by construction, landscaping, sprinkler installation, and grade changes. The effects of these changes on existing trees can be quite devastating and can take five to ten years to become fully visible.

Water Efficient Irrigation
- Eco-friendly (reduce water usage by 30% to 70%, compared to a conventional sprinkler system)
- Reduces greenhouse gas emissions through more precise use of fertilizers, which are pre-mixed in the water before irrigation. Drip irrigation can reduce water use by 30 to 70 percent compared to conventional sprinkler irrigation. Sprinklers can waste water due to scattered spray from winds, evaporation, run-off or deep leaching.
