Benefits of Green
Lowered Water Consumption
Responsible Use of Materials
Car Charging Stations
Carraway Village is committed to sustainable living, and one way we support this goal is through our Tesla charging station.
Advanced Framing Techniques
Green building techniques allow builders to use less lumber while still meeting all the necessary strength and safety requirements. Carraway uses fewer resources overall, making us more environmentally friendly than properties with traditional building techniques.
Extra Efficient Low-E Windows
Low-emissivity glass helps regulate the temperature in your home by reflecting heat back into the room without compromising the amount of light that comes in. This means that low-e windows can improve the thermal efficiency of your home, making it more comfortable and saving you money on energy bills in the process.
Energy Star Appliances
Reduce your energy consumption and your electricity bill by using ENERGY STAR® appliances. These appliances are designed to use less electricity than standard models without sacrificing features or performance.
Extra Wall and Floor Insulation
We built Carraway Village with extra wall and floor insulation for more internal temperature control that doesn’t cost you more. The Emerson’s insulation also lowers its energy usage, so it’s excellent for your pocket as well as the environment.
Water Efficient Plumbing Fixtures
We’ve implemented water efficient plumbing fixtures to cut down on water waste. This helps us save water and money, while still providing our residents with the quality fixtures they deserve.
Low VOC Paints and Sealants
Low VOC paint and sealants emit fewer fumes, improve air quality inside the building, and are environmentally friendlier than their traditional counterparts. At Carraway, we prioritize the well-being of our residents, but it doesn’t hurt that using low VOC materials also helps us reduce our carbon footprint.
We aim to preserve the environment’s natural balance by using native plants in our design. Native plants have evolved over time to be well-suited to their particular climate and soil, which means we don’t need to use excess water or fertilizers to keep them thriving.
