What Is Earth Advantage Platinum?

An Introduction To Earth Advantage Platinum With Rick Harris of Rick Harris Real Estate Group

Hi everyone, I’m Rick Harris of Rick Harris Real Estate Group at John L. Scott Ashland. Today in our series, Great features of a KDA Home, we’re going to talk about Earth Advantage Platinum.

Earth Advantage Platinum is five things:

  1. Energy efficiency
  2. Indoor air quality
  3. Water-wise technology
  4. Sustainable materials
  5. Intelligent land use

Pillar number one: energy efficiency

A KDA home gives you high energy technology like an induction cooktop, ductless heat systems, and heat pump water heaters. It also seals all of the outlets where you might get air penetration around the switches, around the plugs, and around the doorways. And, it also gives high energy-efficient insulation. So you’ve got extra insulation in the attic, in the walls, and in the floors

Pillar number two: indoor air quality

A KDA home is sealed tight. That means we have to make sure we have low VOC paints. We use materials that don’t off-gas and we introduce fresh air through a mechanical ventilation system.

Pillar Number three: water-wise technology

In a KDA home, we use low Floyd toilets, showers, and limited water use dishwashers. We preserve water in our landscaping through zero escaping, protecting the resource we all need for the future.

Pillar Number four: sustainable building materials

In a KDA home, we use materials that protect the natural resources of our planet. Quality quartz countertops, vinyl plank flooring, cement siding, all designed to preserve the environment and build a quality home for our buyers.

Pillar Number five: sustainable land use

KDA Homes protects the environment and preserves land by building efficient footprint homes, clustered housing, pollinator gardens, making sure that we preserve available land for future homeowners.
