Trilogy’s Lessons in Saving Energy With Green House Designs

Trilogy Partners is always busy continuing to learn more about new developments in green home design. Our continued efforts benefit our customers with new ideas that can be incorporated into the energy saving design of their new home.

Recent lessons we have learned lessons from the three finalists of the From the Ground Up green home competition in Syracuse. These affordable green homes have taught us much about incorporating some exciting features that will drastically increase energy efficiency from the ground up during the building process.

By adhering to principles of Passive House as the From the Ground Up finalists did, we realize the importance of incorporating passive energy savings elements. These features include south facing windows and increased air tightness through higher R-values in insulation and framing design. Being these features were subjected to the harsh winters in Syracuse, this makes them extremely suited for green house design in our Colorado Mountain area.

There are always more lessons to learn when it comes to saving energy through design and Trilogy will continue to study the latest innovations for the benefit of their clients.
