What is a Monarch Butterfly EcoHome?
It is a home that is consciously renovated with sustainable elements of energy efficiency. Those energy efficient elements feature: 1 - Water, 2 - Energy Efficiency and 3 - Renewable Energy. We take a conscious approach towards renovations in utilizing the principles in the 3 R's-Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. These principles assist us with high-efficiency heating and cooling, eco-construction, energy star appliances, and other sustainable elements. All of these sustainable elements assist with lower utility bills while reducing the carbon footprint in the City, State and its impact on the environment.
Higher insulation values along with high energy-efficient cooling and heating keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Utilizing appliances that are high in energy efficiency may be costly but we see that as transferring wealth by reducing energy on future utility bills.
The homes that we renovate are usually beyond repair so it makes it difficult to salvage any materials. We try and reuse materials that are normally taken out during the full gut renovation or reuse materials from local salvage stores during the construction phase of the project.
