Natural Balance is a leader in green building. There are four key areas where responsible practices can make a significant difference in reducing our ecological footprint without sacrificing comfort or convenience: energy consumption, water consumption, material selection and waste. Homes built by Natural Balance typically reduce energy consumption by 24-60% and water consumption by 50-90%. And, our proprietary ‘green clean’ construction waste removal and recycling program is the best local solution available.
Natural Balance is proud to have built Western Canada’s first LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Platinum certified single-family home, awarded to builders that have demonstrated the highest standards in green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions.
What does that mean to you, the homeowner?
In practical terms it means that your home will be built to save energy, be water efficient, reduce CO2 emissions and have the higher than average indoor air quality. It also means that you can sleep well knowing that the resources used to build your home were chosen based on environmental considerations such as stewarding natural resources and being sensitive to the impact of using – and disposing of - all the resources that are required in building your home.
And the best news of all, many green design and construction principles can be incorporated into homes at little or no extra cost.
