Building Science

SunTerra Homes are designed for the colder climates where home heating is the primary requirement for comfort. A house is a system of interconnected elements. SunTerra strives to combine all the parts with careful emphasis on economics, durability, maintenance, comfort and health.

SunTerra's success in designing and building homes depends upon understanding the dynamics of the physical forces that create a tug of war between the outside and inside environments. A SunTerra home applies the principles of building science in both design and construction. It balances many building elements to achieve superior performance with an affordable investment in proper insulation, quality windows, efficient heating and cooling systems, airtight construction, controlled ventilation and solar orientation. These features make a SunTerra home the most comfortable home you'll ever live in.
