LEED Isn’t Just A Funny-Looking Acronym.

So, you and many other people have been asking…what is LEED? Is it like an LED light with extra power? Is it a new lightbulb (oh goodness I’m already behind)?

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED). Sounds pretty exciting, I know. But!…It IS actually super exciting. These LEED homes are GREEN homes, which encourage the homes around them to follow suit. They provide BETTER quality air INSIDE your home, and releases less of the harmful stuff out in the air. They also use roughly 45% less energy each year, saving thousands of dollars of your hard-earned money. And honestly, I could really use that money myself.

Not only do these homes use less energy, but they are more desirable for new homeowners and also cost the same (if not less) than conventional homes. On average, there is a 2.4% increase on the money upfront but since it saves you bundles of money, within the first year the money saved outweighs the upfront cost.

We here at Specified Building Products have many choices when it comes to LEED options for your business. Shoot us an email or give us a call at 877-903-9090!
