Rookwood Homes and Your Green Lifestyle

We understand how to be environmentally responsible

Don't be alarmed. Rookwood Homes is not about icebergs melting beneath polar bears. What we are about, however, is educating our clients who want to see more money in their bank account at the end of the month. Or families who are understandably concerned with medical expenses and the increasing number of school or work days lost due to illnesses. It's all about learning, and then understanding.

Did you know that over the past ten years your investment in the S&P 500 would have yielded, on average, about a 37% increase? But during that same period, energy costs have risen 300%. Did you know that with the standard incandescent lamp, only 10%-15% of the energy consumed provides light? The rest is turned into heat.

Did you know that 20% of the fresh water consumed annually in the U.S. is spent on irrigation? Did you know if we use water efficient appliances, we not only conserve water, but also reduce the amount of energy required to heat that water. Or the faucet that leaks at the rate of one drip per second wastes 3,000 gallons of water a year.

You've probably seen the ads on TV informing you that the air quality inside your home contains 2 to 5 times more pollutants than the air outside your home. Well it can actually be worse than that, 100 times worse. We've all entered a freshly painted or carpeted room and noticed those distinctive odors. But did you know this is off-gassing, the condition where toxic chemicals are being released into the air.

We know. We write the books and teach the professionals of today to be the environmentally responsible professionals of tomorrow. We also understand. We understand how to design and build your home to be an environmentally responsible home, addressing your concerns and needs.
