Michael Baumgartner Construction, Inc.

Green Homes

Our team of design and construction practices promotes a “whole building” approach to sustainability through sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, indoor environmental quality and innovation in design.
Green homes have much higher performance levels than homes built to the minimum building codes. Building green does not add a significant cost, but will reduce long-term costs.

Features of Energy Star qualified new homes include:
  • Effective Insulation
  • High-Performance Windows
  • Tight Construction and Ducts
  • Efficient Heating and Cooling Equipment
  • Efficient Products

Geothermal Heating Systems:
Michael Baumgartner Construction, Inc. has experience with geothermal systems. Before the first shovel of dirt is removed, the preparation begins for the installation of a geothermal heating system, which includes the proper number of wells to accommodate the size of the home.

A geothermal heat pump heating system utilizes the free heat available from the earth to provide as much as 80% of a home’s total winter heating requirement, resulting in a heating system whose operating cost can be 25-40% lower than fossil fuel fired heating systems, while producing far less carbon dioxide than fossil fuel fired systems. Geothermal heat pump systems are virtually invisible from outdoors, require no exterior equipment, have very low maintenance requirements and can provide super efficient cooling during summer operation.

Our team will provide a structure for energy efficiency.

Energy conservation is important both for the environment and for a home owner’s bottom line. Each Michael Baumgartner Construction, Inc. home is energy efficient, achieved through advanced insulation practices as well as high efficiency windows and doors, lighting, appliances and HVAC systems.

Whether you are considering an addition or a large or small remodeling project we can assist you with consulting. Our knowledge of “Green Building” will also make your home remodeling project the most energy efficient as it can be.

We comply with EPA training and standards for lead paint.

Radon removal system which is built into a system of tubes beneath the basement cement and routing to a ventilating fan to remove radon, if necessary can be an option.
