With Unity, energy efficiency and comfort go hand-in-hand. “Comfortable” is the first word that many Unity homeowners use to describe their home. This isn’t surprising, because when a home is built to be energy efficient and durable, then comfort inevitably follows.
Comfort can be defined in different ways. There’s physical comfort, which tends to be strongly influenced by our surroundings. There’s also psychological/emotional comfort, the ingredients of which are usually more subtle.
Unity Homes provide uniquely high levels of physical comfort because
Physical comfort in a home is also determined by the quality of the indoor air. It’s hard to feel comfortable in a home that is stuffy, or in which contaminants such as mold or VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds) are present. Every Unity Home has a ventilation system that provides a continuous supply of fresh air into the home, while exhausting stale air. This fresh air system ensures that Unity homeowners can breathe easily.
There’s a deeper sense of comfort that is harder to measure and account for, reflecting qualities such as natural light, sound attenuation and pleasing proportions. Visitors to Unity’s Open House events often remark on the quality of the space, and how it engenders a sense of peacefulness. Our homes provide a quiet, peaceful refuge.
Regardless of how comfort is defined, we work hard to ensure that Unity homeowners experience it consistently.
