Insulation is one of the most important areas of creating energy-efficiency since we are impacted by the comfort in our homes throughout the year. Saliba homes use Energy Star® energy-efficient, high-density exterior wall insulation with an R-value of 13 or better, exceeding standard building code. Attic insulation is loose-fill fiberglass blown to a thickness of 16” to achieve an R-value of 30, which is also well above code.
The entire structure is air sealed with high-density foam to prevent air penetration making your home more comfortable and energy efficient.
Our standard heating and cooling systems are Lenox and Carrier with a SEER rating of 14. Heating and cooling systems with this SEER ratings are quieter, reduce humidity and use less energy to operate providing more comfort throughout your home and saving you money on your utility bills.
Windows in Saliba homes bring beautiful brightness and light, but keep the heat and cold on the outside and comfort inside.
