Earth Day: Time to Go Green While Saving Some Green

Monday April 22, 2013

It’s Earth Day, and it’s never been a better time to start looking for ways to go green while saving yourself some green. At Lamar Smith Signature Homes, our homes include energy efficiencies that promise to cut your energy consumption and save you money. Our homes are better for the environment and better for you!

Among the Energy Efficiencies incorporated into a Lamar Smith Signature Home are:

— ENERGY STAR certified new homes are designed and built to standards well above most other homes on the market today, delivering energy efficiency savings of up to 30 percent when compared to typical new homes. An ENERGY STAR home has undergone inspections, testing, and verification to meet strict requirements set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

— At Lamar Smith Signature Homes, we only use Low-E windows which are made with a special coating to reflect radiant infrared energy. Infrared heat radiating from the sun during the summer is reflected away, keeping it cooler inside, while radiant heat originating from indoors in winter is reflected back inside.

Throughout our models you’ll find the best house logo displayed. We encourage you to stop by one of models in any of our communities throughout the area and look for the BEST house logo with the highlighted E. Each time you see this logo you’ll know these are features that represent an Energy Efficient feature.
