A comfortable home is the number one mission of most humans. We want to come home from a day of stress and unwind, play, and relax in comforts of familiarity. From the décor you choose, to the climate you keep, your home can evoke a sense of calmness or excitement. However you choose to live, it is what will keep you comfortable and content in your home. More than ever, our homes need to function as a calming haven that is our escape from the world. Comfort is paramount. Whether you’re kicking back to watch a movie or enjoying a delicious family meal, your home should inspire relaxation and reflect comfortable and stylish interior design in every room. The key is figuring out how to balance comfort and style in all your spaces.
Garbett is proud to be Utah's premiere Zero Energy Ready Home builder. So what is a Zero Energy Ready Home? A Zero Energy Ready Home is a high-performance home so energy efficient, all or most annual energy consumption can be offset with renewable energy. By using 2’x6’ exterior walls instead of conventional 2’x4’ walls, and spacing studs 24” on center (instead of the standard 16” apart) We’re able to make significant gains in insulation. Wood is a poor insulator, so by incorporating these innovations we’re able to include more insulation and give you a higher performing home. We also use Low-Emittance (low-E) windows. Low-E windows allow visible light to enter our homes while restricting summer heat from entering. During the winter months, the windows keep cold air outside while reflecting the heat produced from the home back into the home, keeping your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Keeping you cozy all year!
You’ve probably heard this time and time again, but natural elements are the easiest way to make humans feel comfortable. Water in the home is tranquil and meditative. Consider a fountain or even looking at a pool or lake out your window can bring comfort.
Whether we think about it or not, the climate in your home can make the difference of how comfortable you and your guests feel. Those who live in extreme conditions of hot or cold, tend to stay uncomfortable and have to adjust the heating or air conditioning in their home.
