Our Green Commitments

True Comforts

We'd like to call it plain common sense. Efficiency saves you money and limits excess consumption of energy. Jeffery homes is committed to building smarter homes with superior construction and advanced systems for better living. Savings by Design says we're already building to the 2020 Building Code. We like to be a leader. Buy from a leader of the pack builder.

Better Windows

Top of the line triple pane low E/argon glass windows, which exceed ENERGY STAR® requirements, crafted to deliver exceptional performance. They sport a fine metallic coating that you can’t see, and an invisible gas called argon that naturally occurs in air you breathe. These will reflect and block the sun’s harmful rays. This will prevent furniture fading (less UV) and help to maintain homes to be cooler in the summer and drafts from escaping during the winter. Adds wonderful resale value too!

Better Basements

Full height insulation, airtight construction, and improved drainage and moisture barriers ensure dryer and healthier storage spaces and excellent finishing areas on lower level. Egress windows and extra height basement ceilings available.

Better Wall

With upgraded insulation and insulated sheathing, there are no cold surfaces! Airtight means more energy efficient, warmer, quieter, and healthier homes.

Better Attics

More insulation (up to R70) and leading edge airtight construction means lower heating bills, cooler in the summer, and longer lasting environmentally friendly products in your Jeffery home.

Better Heating & Hot Water Features

Top of the line high efficiency furnace. Best in Class technology provides better air quality with continuous quiet fan, (ECM motor which delivers high capacity output but uses 1/5 of the power) also delivering better cooling capabilities. Upgraded hot water tank (over 90% efficient) with no rental fees.

Better Products
