LEED for Homes U.S.

Green Building Council Rating System

LEED for Homes is a rating system that promotes the design and construction of high-performance green homes. A green home uses less energy, water and natural resources, creates less waste and is healthier and more comfortable for the occupants.

Benefits of a LEED home include lower energy and water bills, reduced greenhouse gas emissions and less exposure to mold, mildew and other indoor toxins.

The net cost of owning a LEED home is comparable to that of owning a conventional home.

Why LEED?

LEED homes are safer, healthier, more comfortable and more durable than standard homes. They have lower energy and water bills, reduced greenhouse gas emissions and fewer problems with mold, mildew and other indoor toxins.

LEED certification assures consumers that they can readily identify homes that have been third-party inspected, performance-tested and certified as truly green homes that will perform better than standard homes. Homebuilders using LEED are able to differentiate their homes as some of the best on the market.

Westchester Modular Homes has the proven ability to produce rated LEED homes.

Why Choose Our Modular LEED Certified Homes?

You may be wondering why you should invest the money to hire a professional modular building company like ours to build an LEED-certified home. Well, here are the main reasons why:

  • Improved Health: We want you to enjoy excellent health! Since you’ll spend at least one-third of the day at home, the quality of the air and the indoor atmosphere has a significant influence on your health. Living in one of our LEED-certified modular homes will help you enjoy excellent indoor air quality. Our homes are constructed using only the best materials, and they have excellent natural ventilation that prevents the growth of mold and mildew.
  • Increased Comfort: Apart from enjoying better health, you’ll also live in a more comfortable home. These LEED green buildings provide a cooler indoor atmosphere, and the designs have a more pleasant effect on the mind and emotions, improving your overall wellbeing.
  • Cost Savings: Your energy bills will be quite low after you move into one of our modular homes. We ensure these homes use considerably less energy than homes built with conventional methods — in fact, energy savings are usually between 30 and 60 percent. In addition, you’ll enjoy various benefits offered by your state’s government. The enhanced insulation, better ductwork, tightly sealed windows and doors and efficient heating will allow you to pay a lower amount for energy every month. You can also enjoy low water bills due to low-flow showerheads and faucets, low-consumption toilets and efficient systems for managing outdoor rain and stormwater.
  • Higher Home Value: Your LEED-certified modular home will offer you greater value appreciation compared to other non-certified homes. We’ll do our best to make sure your home can sell at a higher value, depending on the neighborhood. Since today's tenants want the benefits of LEED certification, you can raise your rent significantly if you’re planning to include it.
