    Details Make all the Difference

    Walls

    Sealing the outside walls is like putting a wind breaker on your home to prevent uncontrolled ventilation. A Right Choice Home uses the following methods to protect specific areas:

    • Caulk the bottom plate to the floor
    • Seal all wire penetrations and outside receptacles
    • Seal the outside sheathing between all seams
    • Caulk and seal areas where two wood pieces join
    • Seal around windows
    • Sheathing and blocking air from the knee wall and
    • the floor insulation above the garage.

    Ceilings

    Air can leak around rough openings between the sheetrock and the electrical and heating air vents. Sealing these openings in the ceiling with caulk or foam ensures hot summer air or cold winter air doesn’t come inside the envelope.

    Your Right Choice Home builder will apply foam to your sheathing at the cathedral ceiling in order to prevent unconditioned air from migrating through the insulation. This ensures that the insulation’s R-value performs up to its true capability.

    Penetrations

    Ever felt cold winter air coming from an interior light switch or known someone whose pipes froze in their wall?

    These situations occur when cold air moves from unheated areas to heated ones. That’s why Right Choice standards require that the builder seal pipe, wire, and ductwork penetrations, preventing heat loss in winter — or loss of conditioned air in the summer.

Save Big

Right Choice homes are typically 20 to 30% more efficient on heating and cooling costs than standard homes.

A three-year energy warranty guarantees that your Right Choice home’s heating and cooling energy costs will be below a specified amount each year.

Efficiency

Your family deserves a home that's built better than code minimums, one that is worthy of your hard-earned dollars, and one that enhances the quality of your life.
