"Everyone is so amazed by the energy efficiency that Premier's SIP provides. It only costs an average of $200 to $300 a year to heat one of my homes. That's anywhere from one-fifth to one-sixth the typical costs for this region, so the savings are pretty significant and the homeowners love that."
-Scott Bergford, President
Green homes are about so much more than simply choosing a handful of green products. Our homes are truly high efficiency homes with a system of products that work together to optimize the following home performance areas:
- Air-Tightness & Indoor Air Quality
- Preventing Thermal Bridging
- R-Values & Insulation
Any one of these items alone helps a home's performance but when used correctly together, our system of products complement each other, giving you a healthy, economical and comfortable home to live in. Current tax rebates and incentives are making green building even more affordable.

The products that make up our core system....
SIPs, Structural Insulated Panels from Premier Building Systems, are used for the building envelope (roof and walls) and create the structural shell that each of our homes are built around. SIPs are stronger, straighter and greener than traditional 2x6 stick frame construction. They offer extremely high insulating values keeping your house warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.

Historically used in only high-end homes, radiant heat is ideal for people who suffer from allergies. Installed in your floors, radiant heat technology is not only extremely energy efficient, it is also the most comfortable form of heat because there is no forced blown air. Unlike forced air furnace systems where you are hated by an environment of moving hot air, radiant heat warms objects (i.e. our bodies).
It just makes sense for us to generate our own energy. The payback of choosing solar hot water is a quick 6-10 years and solar saves homeowners bout 60% average savings on their domestic hot water costs each year alone. Choosing a tankless hot water heater is one more way homeowners can reduce the energy used to heat their water and homes. Many variables are factored into your solar home savings: lifestyle, solar panel manufacturer's efficiency, and solar orientation in the mounting.
