Solar Photovoltaic, Solar Thermal, Geothermal starter Homes – Video
Looking for your first home or a place to call home that is energy efficient and budget friendly? Garbett Homes “Utah’s Freshest Home Builder” makes going green easy on the wallet. All homes now come standard with Solar Photovoltaic, Solar Thermal or Geothermal heat. This has resulted in Utility bills of less than $5 for some of Garbett’s home buyers.
These twin homes close to The District and Daybreak come standard with solar panels and geothermal. All of the solar is installed by Dwelltek (A Park City Energy Management Company). Some of the homes have Solar PV and others are installed with solar thermal to heat the home. There have been a few jobs that have BIPV or Solar Hybrid systems.
Another feature of many of the homes built by Garbett is geothermal heat pumps. Steve Lauritzen CEO of Utah Geothermal tells us how the heat pump works on these economical and beautiful homes. Geothermal is a key piece of why home buyers in Daybreak and the District are seeing energy bills under $5. Geothermal works by exchanging heat from the ground to both heat and cool the home.
Deconstruct homes help show how Garbett uses building science to get HERS ratings (Home Energy Rating, Like MPG for your house) under 50. The use of good construction practices, proper insulation, dual flush toilets, helps make these homes among the most efficient homes under $200,000 anywhere in Utah. If you are looking for your first home or want a new more efficient house you owe it to yourself to stop by Garbett Homes to learn how much money a well built home can save you!
