Green Home Made Healthier with Whole Home Water Filtration System
Builder Sy Safi of UberGreen Spaces & Homes chose the CWL Spectrum whole-house water filtration system from Environmental Water Systems to provide clean water for the home. The system removes chlorine as well as trace amounts of pharmaceuticals and carcinogens that can be found in city water.
Known as Su Verde, or "About Green" in Italian, the high performance home in the Norton Commons development in Louisville is seeking certifications from multiple organizations, including DOE Zero Energy Ready Home, LEED, Passive House, National Green Building Standard, Living Building Challenge Petal Certification and the LBC Net Zero Certification.
The home reflects the builder's and architect's passion for creating a uniquely beautiful and highly livable home that is also very resource efficient. They view water as a finite resource that requires vigilant stewardship and a creative approach to helping others understand their responsibilities toward that resource.
