Florida Home Builders | Florida New Construction
Since 1992 and hundreds of hundreds of energy efficient homes built, Gast Homes has developed the perfect formula that every home builder dreams about. Home buyers and competitive home builders love to talk to us about our energy smart homes performance without an increase in monthly cost. The Secret is not just adding the term green or even installing solar but more a whole home system approach to building science. Our owner has extensive on the jobs site hammer swinging as well as the office administrative side, he explains it like this. “After building the first four hundred or so houses I thought I had a strong handle on home building but, after working with the Department of Energy for another three years and performing a thousand plus energy audits I have a whole new take on the home building process". The common misconception is “Expensive”, but that’s not the case. Designing smart energy home plans and three years working with the Department of Energy, DOE, comes down to unmatched experience and know how.
Electric meters that run backwards?
Calling yourself a green home builder or adding PV panels is all smoke and mirrors. To offer a real Energy Efficient new construction home you need to look at all the components and how they perform with each other. With recent technology improvements we now build homes using Blower Door equipment, micro-manometers, infrared guns and calculation formulas using Pascal, CFM’s, Watts and much more. The end result is designing an energy smart home plan that maximizes space and is planned with some very unique features that allow it to be more efficient. Second is make sure absolutely no Air Conditioning ducts or system are in the attic. To even consider being energy efficient never use any home builder that even considers installing the HVAC ducts in a hot attic. Third, using the newest building science technology equipment, properly size the new generation of house mechanical equipment to handle your task. Then when you have a very energy efficient home you can install the solar panels and a net electric meter. People are just amazed how the electric meter actually runs backwards during the day and normal after the sun goes down.
