Rancho Sienna homebuilders offer leading-edge energy efficiency
Leading edge energy efficiency is one of the best reasons to choose a new home instead of a used one, with today’s homebuilders offering a long list of included features that can reduce costs and enhance comfort, and also promote indoor air quality and reduce water usage.
Many Rancho Sienna homebuilders offer some of the most comprehensive energy efficiency features available today, including the Environments for Living (EFL) Heating and Cooling Energy Use Guarantee, which guarantees monthly heating and cooling usage.
EFL building techniques help ensure that homeowners won't experience a comfort problem — for example, a bonus room or bedroom that never seems to get warm enough in winter or cool enough in summer.
Rancho Sienna builders also use the latest technology to enable residents to save money, even when they are not home. These include Lennar’s new Wi-Fi CERTIFIED technology and home automation package, showcased in its new Giallo model home and included in every Lennar home built in Rancho Sienna.
Other builders use third-party professionals to perform unbiased inspections of insulation, the thermal envelope, and HVAC ductwork prior to drywall installation. More energy efficient features include Low-E glazing on windows, radiant roof barriers and LED bulbs.
Today’s new homes also go far beyond heating and cooling concerns. Many features also promote better indoor air quality, with fresh air ventilation, air pressure balancing, combustion safety, enhanced filtration systems, low VOC paints and carpets, and environmentally preferable cabinetry offered by many builders.
Many builders, including Trendmaker offer features designed to conserve water, a priority in the Austin area. These include timed irrigation systems, drought-tolerant landscaping and water-saving dishwashers. Other water-saving features are flow faucets and showerheads, high-efficiency toilets, and high-performance clothes washers.
