High quality homebuilder Lennar uses innovative and modern building materials to create some of the most energy-efficient homes available on today’s market. One of the many benefits of buying a new home is that it comes outfitted with the latest technology, which in turn helps to save homeowner’s money on utility bills each month while lowering a residence’s carbon footprint.
As part of Lennar’s Everything’s Included® package, every new home comes filled with upscale amenities. Items like stainless steel appliances and granite-slab kitchen countertops elevate a home’s appeal, but many other items come included that make everyday life easier and lower a home’s total energy usage. Little changes everyday add up to big savings for the environment in the long run.
Creating a truly energy-efficient home starts during the construction process. Radiant barrier roof sheathing increases cooling energy-efficiency, which maximizing indoor comfort that allows for minimum air conditioning use. Improved insulation techniques and a tightly sealed duct system also help control indoor airspace by eliminating any spaces or gaps for heat or cool air to escape from, or through.
All new Lennar homes use low VOC paint, which stands for low volatile organic compounds. These paints have a less harmful chemical makeup, which improves air quality both indoors and out. Double paned low emissivity windows, commonly referred to as low-E, have protective coatings to help keep heat in during winter and out during summer. Pair these items with programmable thermostats controlled through home automation by Nexia Home Intelligence, and residents will enjoy the utmost control over their indoor environments year round. Home automation also allows for climate controlled sprinkler management, helping to reduce water used for landscaping.
Energy-star certified appliances have the U.S. Government’s seal of approval for meeting modern energy-conserving requirements. Not only do these stainless steel appliances look great — they help save the environment too.
Solar packages come in many of our new communities and offer a revolutionary way to counter energy usage, by creating it. SunStreet Solar Systems, available in select communities, help cut a home’s overall carbon dioxide emissions nearly in half, according the U.S. Department of Energy.
In the San Diego area, we have move-in ready energy-efficient homes in Escondido and Chula Vista. For more information on these communities visit www.lennar.com/SD.
