LEED for Homes is a rating system that promotes the design and construction of high performance green homes.  Administered by the U.S Green Building Council, LEED promotes a holistic approach to sustainability and emphasizes strategies for better environmental and health performance.  LEED is the most difficult certification to achieve and requires third-party validation, which makes achieving it a mark of leadership in green homebuilding.  These homes must meet 18 mandatory measures, then earn enough optional points to reach certification.  This home will be more comfortable, durable, efficient, and have a smaller overall environmental footprint than conventional homes.  
1.  Savings:  This home will save you energy, water, taxes, and more.  It was built to be highly energy efficient, ensuring that your home will comfortably heat and cool itself with minimal energy usage.  It has been constructed to minimize exterior and ductwork leakage, and careful thought given during the design/selection and installation process.  
2.  Health:  This home has been built to provide a healthier environment for you and your family.  The EPA estimates that indoor air is between 2 and 10 times more polluted than outdoor air, so it is critical that your home has good ventilation and that it minimizes indoor pollutants and hazards.  LEED homes require proper ventilation, high efficiency air filters, and measures to reduce the possibilty of mold and mildew.  
3.  Value:  A home is the largest purchase most families will make and high performance homes are growing in demand.  Certified green homes are now selling quicker and for more money than comparable non-green homes, which is great for resale and appreciation.
4.  Track Record:  The U.S Green Building Council administers the LEED green home certification program with onsite inspections, detailed documentation, and performance testing.  It makes sure your home is inspected and tested by a third party so you can be confident that it will perform as you expect it to and trust that your home is truly GREEN.
