Healthy Homes for a Happy Planet

 
Healthy Homes for a Happy Planet

Posted: April 22 2021

A healthy planet means healthier indoor air, non-toxic building materials, energy efficiency, water conservation, durability, longevity and so much more...

Landmark Homes proudly leads the industry with the most planet-forward building practices in North America. We are sincerely committed to environmental stewardship and sustainable building practices to benefit future generations. In good faith, Landmark has recognized critical global issues and pursued building techniques that significantly reduce our carbon footprint and lessen our impact on precious natural resources. Sustainable building practices are essential to our planet and your wellbeing. We pledge to build homes sustainably, because a healthy planet means a healthy home. Check out some of the qualities that make our homes healthier for you, and the planet!


Medical Grade Indoor Air

As indoor air circulates through the filter, impurities are eliminated in 3 unique stages using advanced technologies. This 3-stage process ensures your family is breathing the healthiest indoor air possible, while conserving energy & saving money. Learn more >>


Engineered Lumber

Engineered lumber, AKA Laminated Strand Lumber (LSL) is manufactured lumber made with a mix of underutilized smaller scraps of woods and wood fibres that would otherwise be considered unusable in the building world. This material allows us to build stronger homes, without the common defects in traditional lumber while saving our forests that are essential to the ecosystem, the atmosphere, and critical for producing clean air.

Tankless Hot Water

A tankless hot water system is standard in a Landmark Home! This system gives you hot water on demand, takes up less much space than a traditional tank, and only runs when you turn hot water on. No more paying for a full hot water tank 24/7. Learn more >>


ENERGY STAR®

High efficiency rated appliances & windows! These appliances and windows are certified to run and perform more efficiently using less energy, saving you money on your energy bill. Learn more >>


WaterSense®

Every plumbing fixture in a Landmark Home is WaterSense® certified. WaterSense® labeling means you’re saving water to the highest possible standards in terms of energy and water conservation. High performance plumbing fixtures work in conjunction with ENERGY STAR® certified water conserving appliances such as washing machines and dishwashers, ensuring unparalleled financial comfort and sustainability without compromise.

CARB 2 Certified Non-Toxic Cabinetry

Not only is all our wood material certified CARB 2–our paints, stains and lacquers also contribute to a healthier indoor air environment! Water based paints and stains are healthier to touch, and don’t produce VOCs into the air the same way acrylic based paints do. Plus, when the finishes are cured under UV light, the off gassing is reduced further delivering you and your family cleaner indoor air free from harmful chemicals! Learn More >>


Sustainable Smart Wireless Lighting

We use the most sustainable, and innovative approach to residential lighting. Unlike other builders, we don’t use wire to connect switches to corresponding lights. This wireless method is not dependant on Wi-Fi, and yet 100% smart–allowing you to control and zone every light in your home, both indoor and outdoor without boundaries. On average a Landmark Home saves 600 ft of copper wire. Learn more >>


Improved Air Exchange & Airtightness

Our homes are healthier because of the high-performance air exchange rate we can offer. This simply means the excellent performance of our heating and ventilations systems are more efficient because our homes are precision built, airtight. This allows fresh air to be heated and replenished faster using less energy than a leaky home with conventional furnaces. This significantly improves indoor air quality and ultimately saves you money because your home doesn't need to work as hard (consuming less energy) in the process. Learn more >>


Above Average EnerGuide Ratings!

Monthly and yearly savings are a huge bonus, but there’s more! Landmark Homes are built to perform at least 15-20% better than the average build. Additionally, this rating qualifies you for a CMHC mortgage loan insurance rebate. The rebate pays you up to 20% back on your mortgage loan insurance. For example, this is $2200 in savings on a $400,000 home with a 5% down payment. Learn more >>
