ENERGY SMART FEATURES

BLOWN-IN ATTIC INSULATION helps maintain control of indoor temperature and is installed around beams, resulting in a more tightly sealed home and improved HVAC performance.

ENERGY-EFFICIENT WINDOWS WITH LOW E3 GLAZING block radiant heat from the sun and UV rays. These windows are specifically designed to reject the sun’s heat without affecting the view. They keep heat out in the summer and warm air in during the winter.

ENERGY STAR® RATED OR QUALIFIED DISHWASHER saves up to three gallons of water per load and uses up to 50% less energy.

ENERGY-EFFICIENT WATER HEATER uses less energy than standard models, saving money on your utility bills.

ENGINEERED ATTIC AIRFLOW VENTILATION precisely vents the attic and removes moisture. This removes heated air in the summer and keeps attic air at the proper temperature during winter.
WATER-CONSERVING FIXTURES reduce water consumption by 30% or more. Toilets, shower heads and faucets use less water while still maintaining performance.

COMPACT LED LIGHT BULBS use up to 75% less energy than incandescent light bulbs.

THIRD-PARTY INSPECTIONS by an outside inspection firm ensures that your home meets all quality and energy-efficiency standards.

TIGHTLY SEALED AIR DUCTS direct air to where it’s needed, making heating and cooling more efficient.

LOW VOC PRODUCTS IN PAINT, WOODWORK AND CARPET emit low or zero volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which helps to maintain good indoor air quality.

ENGINEERED WOOD COMPONENTS are used in floor systems. These products are sustainable, energy-efficient and environmentally friendly.

PROGRAMMABLE THERMOSTAT allows you to control the amount of energy you use based on your family’s lifestyle and helps lower your energy costs.

 

The HERS® Index is a registered trademark of the Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET®). The HERS® Index rating listed is based on a sample of Gehan Homes in the Dallas area, using RESNET® approved software. Each 1 point decrease in the HERS® Index corresponds to a 1% reduction in energy consumption compared to the HERS® 2006 IECC reference homes (specifications are based on the 2006 International Energy Conservation Code). For more information visit www.resnet.us ad www.energysavers.come. Actual HERS® Index rating and savings may vary depending on location/orientation of the home, structural options, interior options and exterior options. Estimated monthly energy usage is an estimate generated from RESNET® approved software. Actual energy consumption and costs will vary. Buyers should not rely solely on the HERS® Index rating in making a purchase decision. Gehan Homes does not guarantee HERS® Index rating or estimated monthly energy cost. Information subject to change without notice. *Products and/r services may vary by division/community.


The HERS Index is the industry standard by which a home’s energy efficiency is measured. The U.S. Department of Energy has determined that a typical resale home scores 130 on the HERS Index while a standard new home is awarded a rating of 100. For information on a specific home, please have a home energy rating conducted by a certified RESNET® Home Energy Rater.
