Living in a USGBC LEED Zero certified home in Denver offers a multitude of benefits for both your health and your finances. These net-zero homes represent the pinnacle of green building achievement, providing a healthier and more sustainable living environment. In this blog, we will explore some of the advantages of LEED certifications, focusing on how the certifications promote well-being, save money, and contribute to a greener future.

Promoting Health and Well-being

All LEED-certified homes prioritize occupant well-being, creating indoor spaces that are healthier and more satisfying to the senses. The higher the certification, the better the overall performance of the home (LEED, LEED Silver, LEED Gold, LEED Platinum, LEED Zero).

Here are some key highlights:
Improved Indoor Air Quality:

LEED homes are designed to maximize indoor fresh air and minimize exposure to airborne VOCs (volatile organic compounds – toxins and pollutants), ensuring a healthier living environment. All of redT’s LiteHomes are designed and built to meet or exceed the USGBC’s requirements for LEED Gold certification. Our LiteHomes on E Mississippi Ave and S Dahlia St were designed to achieve LEED Platinum certification and will be eligible to pursue LEED Zero status.

Enhanced Comfort:
 Our LiteHomes are built with a focus on thermal comfort, providing a consistent and pleasant indoor temperature throughout the year. Window placement plays a role in maximizing comfort levels.

Natural Light and Views:
LEED-certified LiteHomes incorporate ample natural light and views of the surrounding environment, promoting a sense of well-being and connection to the neighborhood.

Financial Benefits

Living in a USGBC LEED Zero-certified home in Denver not only benefits your health but also your wallet.

Here’s how: 
Energy Efficiency
LEED-certified homes are designed to be highly energy-efficient, resulting in lower utility bills and long-term cost savings. LEED Zero LiteHomes take it a step further by pursuing the highest designation and net-zero status. Our LiteHomes on E Mississippi boast solar power.

Water Efficiency:
These homes incorporate water-saving features, such as low-flow fixtures and efficient irrigation systems, reducing water consumption and lowering water bills.

Tax Incentives:
Many states and local governments offer tax incentives and rebates for LEED-certified homes, providing additional financial benefits to homeowners.

Environmental Impact

Choosing a USGBC LEED Zero certified home in Denver is a conscious decision to contribute to a greener future—and you know redT is all about Building A Greener Colorado.

Here are some environmental benefits:
Reduced Carbon Emissions:
Our all-electric (no gas) LEED-certified homes have lower carbon emissions compared to conventional homes, helping to combat climate change. Some of the LEED certification points stem from proximity to public transportation and walkability scores further promoting lower carbon emissions. Choosing to live lite also lowers homeowners’ carbon footprint.

Resource Conservation:
These homes prioritize resource conservation through efficient use of materials, water, and energy, minimizing their environmental footprint.

Sustainable Landscaping:
LEED homes often feature sustainable landscaping practices, such as native plantings and rainwater harvesting, which support biodiversity and reduce water usage.


Living in a USGBC LEED Zero-certified home in Denver offers a range of benefits for both your health and your finances. These homes prioritize occupant well-being, save money through energy and water efficiency, and contribute to a greener future.
