NEW HOME CONSTRUCTION IN GEORGIA GOES GREEN

Georgia State
Earlier this year, Atlanta showed up on a list of the top 10 cities for new home construction, according to the Atlantic magazine.

New homes present an opportunity for buyers and HVAC contractors to invest in high-efficiency systems that will save the homeowner money for the life of the house.

In addition, Georgia has changed the requirements for homeowners to reflect the latest version of the federal energy codes.

If you're a Georgia homeowner or if you're in the market for a new home, this will definitely make your life a little more affordable in the long run.

As part of the code changes, George state law now bans the use of electric furnaces and attic ventilators. The state also has increased the amount of required insulation in attics.

Windows are now required to have the same insulating factors in South Georgia as are mandated in Atlanta.

Your HVAC contractor can tell you if your home is in compliance with the new energy regulations.

Meanwhile, Georgia Power offers a service to consumers that details cost/ benefits of various energy-saving initiatives, most of which you can do yourself and some of which require an HVAC technician. http://www.georgiapower.com/earthcents/residential/home-energy-tips.cshtml
