(VBI Homes) in Old Town have completed yet another energy efficient project. It took VBI 100 days to complete the project: a home located on the west bank of the Grand River in Dimondale.
“The green building mantra promotes local sourcing of building materials. This will always have a positive effect on local job stability,” says Scott Schmidt with Vesta Building Industries. “The other is through energy efficiency, which reduces the operating expenses of green buildings. Whether you operate a business or a residential structure, it is useful to have consistent monthly expenses. The more energy a building uses, the more expenses will fluctuate with the energy markets.”
Vesta Building Industries emphasizes that cost reduction isn’t the only benefit to energy efficiency. “An airtight building provides better interior control over temperature, humidity and pollution. This control allows us to provide a healthier more comfortable environment that can increase productivity, and an overall improvement in quality of life,” adds Schmidt.
