January 10th is National Cut Your Energy Costs Day, a holiday dedicated to conserving energy, a practice that protects the planet and saves you money. While you’re surely in love with Lennar’s elegant design features, you might not be aware that the inside of the home is filled with modern energy-efficient features that add value to your home and keep money in your pocket.
Don’t Touch the Thermostat
While you may be used to manually changing the temperature in your home with the time of day and the seasons, a programmable thermostat allows you to set temperatures based on the home’s activity level, like your family being asleep or everybody being out at work or school.
Each Lennar Tampa home comes equipped with a Honeywell Lyric Round® Wi-Fi thermostat that connects to your device, which saves energy while you’re away and turns the HVAC on when you’re pulling into the driveway.
When you’re moving into a new home, it’s important to keep in mind the cost that big appliances like refrigerators, washers, and dryers will bring. In addition to the up-front cost, these appliances can be big energy drains over time.
To combat this, Lennar Tampa homes come standard with GE® ENERGY STAR® appliances. Aside from being state-of-the-art, aesthetically pleasing additions to your home, ENERGY STAR® appliances use up to 50% less energy than standard models, saving you money both up front and in the long run.
WaterSense® Makes Sense
In addition to energy-efficient appliances throughout your home, the faucets in your kitchen and bathroom will also come standard with Moen® Eco-Performance faucets. A WaterSense® certification ensures that your faucets will be using up to 32% less water when compared to standard models.
When you use a WaterSense® certified product, you’re ensuring that you’re not only reducing your environmental impact, but your out-of-pocket cost each month as well.
From shutting off the air conditioning when you aren’t home to making sure every drop of water has a purpose, Lennar homes are full of features that ensure you’re stretching every dollar as far as possible while drastically reducing your environmental impact.
