RALEIGH, NC, April 11, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Grayson Homes is proud to announce an entry into this year's Green Home Tour put on by the High Performance Building Council of the Triangle. Lot 4 of Wesley Manor will be on display April 29th -30th and May 6th-7th noon to 5pm each day.
The High Performance Building Council of the Triangle (formerly the Green Home Builders of the Triangle) is a joint program of the Home Builders Association of Durham, Orange and Chatham Counties and the Home Builders Association of Raleigh-Wake County.
The green building program was launched in 2006 with the primary purpose of promoting building techniques and materials that produce homes which consume less energy and other resources, facilitate better indoor air quality, and provide a more durable product requiring less maintenance.
An annual Green Home Tour, held each spring, features homes that have the latest energy efficiency materials and green building trends. This tour is the premier annual event for people interested in Green building science, energy efficiency or the latest in green technologies in a new home or existing homes.
Lot 4 Wesley Manor is located in Wake Forest, North Carolina and features 2 x 6 wall construction for higher R-value, spray foam insulation, argon filled windows, completely sealed homes from crawlspace to attic, mechanical and HVAC equipment in a conditioned area, Ultra-Aire box for mechanical ventilation and dehumidification, and tankless hot water heaters.
Energy efficiency is rated using the HERZ Index. Grayson Homes typically score in the 60's, which is 15-20% more energy efficient than the average home built today.
