GOING GREEN

At Greenview, we are committed to building homes that are better for the environment and better for your health. We use many building products that help improve air quality, which is especially important for those with allergies, asthma or other special health needs, and we also enable homeowners to install other green building products and systems that provide environmentally friendly alternatives to conventional building materials and processes, which can help you reduce energy costs and help preserve natural resources.
Our custom homes:

Save Energy: We provide options to use products that help the environment, lower operating costs, and ensure that your energy dollars are well spent, such as geothermal heating, high-density insulation, Energy Star windows, Energy Star appliances and compact fluorescent light bulbs.
Save Water: We provide options to use products that allow you to conserve water and protect natural resources, such as dual flush and low-flow toilets, low-flow plumbing fixtures, permeable pavers, and tankless water heaters.
Use natural resources: We provide options to use products that are made from renewable natural resources such as bamboo, eucalyptus, cork, or linoleum flooring and natural cotton fiber insulation.
Have healthy interiors: We provide options to use products that are good for your health, such as zero-VOC and low-odor paints and non-toxic stains, sealers and adhesives.
Have healthy heating & air conditioning systems: We provide options to use HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filters and electronic air cleaners to remove up to 99.97 percent of airborne particles; UV lamps in return air ducts to kill germs, airborne bacteria and mold; and clean steam humidifiers to remove chlorine and particles from water before it is used in the humidifier.
Feature environmentally friendly cabinets: We provide options for cabinets that have been certified as “recycled Content” by SCS (Scientific Certification System), thus successfully meeting the Materials & Resources credit for LEED. These cabinets are made from 100 percent recycled material and are available with a low-VOC, formaldehyde-free finish.
For example, this Lake Forest home by Greenview is heated and cooled by Geo-Thermal Pump technology, using the Earth’s natural thermal energy – a practically infinite source – to heat and cool the home. With pipes extending 65 feet underground, the Geo-Thermal Pump system taps into the ever-constant 68 degree temperature deep under the ground, then circulates this temperature through the house for constant heating or cooling.
We also built a home in Deerfield that is LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Certified by the U.S. Green Building Council. The home uses a combination of green and energy-efficient features and materials to obtain this rating.
