A LEED Certified Home – What Does It Mean?

LEED—which stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design—

is a certification program or rating system for green building. There are a

number of ratings and levels within this system, and they identify the best

building strategies for various structures such as homes, schools, offices,

retails, hospitals, new construction, and so much more. Far-reaching and

flexible, LEED opens doors to all kinds of development projects and gives

them a chance to minimize their carbon footprint and become eco-

friendlier. This classification system has been developed by the US Green

building Council in order to promote and encourage green building

practices. Some popular LEED buildings are Beijing’s Olympic Villages, the

Boston Logan Airport, the Empire State Building in New York, and Chicago’s

Sears Towers.

A LEED certified home will allow you to save money and help preserve the

environment. This certification can also potentially raise the value of your

property—which is always a good thing if you are thinking about reselling

it in the future.

There are a lot of benefits to be enjoyed from a LEED certified home, such

as lower monthly utility expenses. Each part of a LEED certified home is

insulated and sealed. This drives down the amount of energy used for

cooling and home heating. The faucets, toilets, and shower heads in LEED

homes are also low-flow, which means that less energy needs to be used

cheaper.

Another advantage to buying a LEED certified home is that you’ll get a

house that’s in close proximity to bike paths and walking paths. This

likewise contributes to the higher resale value.

If you are looking to buy a new house in Ohio, you’ll be glad to know that

some of the best home builders in the area offer LEED certified homes. Look

for a builder that has been in business for decades if you want to be assured

that your new house will be built to the highest standards.
