As humid days give way to a fall chill, many of us are pondering ways to heat our homes with something other than oil - which is fast approaching $3 per gallon. A hot alternative are geothermal heating systems. Geothermal heating uses the free, renewable energy found in the ground on your own property, using no oil and no gas. This not only significantly reduces your carbon footprint, but your energy costs as well – a geothermally heated 2280 square-foot home costs only about $1300 a year (heat, a/c, and hot water). Standard oil or gas is approximately twice as much.

Builder Steve Reddy of Zetland Homes, LLC, in Hopkinton, NH, has just finished the second truly green home in the state that qualifies for the US Green Building Council’s "LEED" program. LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is the nationally accepted benchmark for high performance in eco-smart practices. LEED for Homes is a rating system that promotes the design and construction of high-performance green homes. A green home uses less energy, water and natural resources; creates less waste; and is healthier and more comfortable for the occupants. Benefits of a LEED home include lower energy and water bills; reduced greenhouse gas emissions; and less exposure to mold, mildew and other indoor toxins. The net cost of owning a LEED home is comparable to that of owning a conventional home.

“We are thrilled to be a leader in green home building in New Hampshire.” says Reddy, “This will be one of the very first LEED certified homes in the state, and one of about 280 nationwide. One of our goals for this home is to demonstrate how a home can be environmentally friendly while using a variety of conventional products.” The home is open to the public for a series of events through December 2, 2007.

The home was featured on Comcast’s Arthur Fennell Reports and Reddy goes on to say that “The Geothermal systems is no more involved than a conventional heating system and it’s the fist thing they want to see when they tour the home” Reddy goes onto say “the current technology allows green homes to look and act like conventional homes – just much more efficiently, and minus the excess.” Zetland Homes’ Loudon’s home is a perfect example of this. In addition to the geothermal heating system, this traditional New England-style home boasts low VOC paints and stains throughout home, recycled content carpeting, bamboo floors and Energy Star lighting and appliances. It’s also the first house in NH to feature Sherwin-Williams’ E-Barrier, a new product that is sprayed to the underside of roof to helps reflect heat out of the attic in summer and retain it in winter.

“Being energy efficient no longer has the luxury of being a fad,” says Reddy. “We’re at a cross-roads here. Builders and home-owners across the country should insist upon nothing less…after all, it’s more expensive, both literally and figuratively, not to be green.”
