Palm Harbor’s Green Building System
Owning a Palm Harbor home costs you less 365 days a year.
Good for you. Good for your wallet. Good for the environment.
Green Home Construction. Naturally.
Green building takes place when construction and design practices are able to increase the efficiency with which a home uses resources such as energy, water and materials, while reducing the home’s impact on the environment. Palm Harbor’s systems-built construction method is inherently green because it produces modular and manufactured homes that are constructed more efficiently, built more tightly and produce less waste.
Good for You.
Owning a Palm Harbor home provides more peace of mind for daily living. Our precise construction and sealed air duct system greatly reduce the presence of pollen, dust and other outside allergens. They also restrict noise pollution from the outside, creating a quieter, more peaceful living environment.
Good for your Pocketbook.
Owning a Palm Harbor modular home or manufactured home means you will save money on monthly utilities because of its energy efficiency. Our precision construction and sealed ducts create a tight construction envelope that significantly reduces the loss of precious heated and cooled air. This means your heating and cooling systems work less to keep you comfortable, which will save you money month after month.
Good for the Environment.
Our high performance construction means you consume less natural resources to heat and cool your home. Palm Harbor homes also allow less treated air to escape, reducing your impact on the environment.
We build GREEN and can help you with certification for various green building programs - LEEDS, NAHB, Earth Advantage and others.
Building our homes to 80% completion in environmentally-protected building centers before delivering them to your home site results in important green benefits. For example, in conventional site built home construction, dumpsters of excess materials are taken to landfills daily. In our building centers, however, we can capture the excess materials from one home and carefully use them in the construction of the next home. Consequently, we can literally measure our waste in dustpans, knowing we are not creating ever-expanding land fills.
Unlike conventional site built construction, our sensitive construction materials are protected from rain, snow and other mold-inducing elements. This results in a healthier home for your family.
Because our system built homes are constructed in building centers, site work can begin while your home is under construction. This means we reduce the project time to completion. So you can move into your Palm Harbor home much sooner than with a conventional builder who must wait on the completion of the foundation and his subcontractors’ schedules before he can even begin to build. By shortening the construction time, we reduce the impact on the environment. The natural run off of valuable top soil, noise pollution and disturbances to the surrounding neighborhood are significantly diminished.
Quite simply, investing in a Palm Harbor home means you own a home you can feel good about - without spending more for it.
