Every American Legend home is thoughtfully designed and constructed using the latest energy efficient systems, environmentally friendly materials and quality construction practices to reduce the environmental impact of new home construction and increase the long term efficiency of the home.
Reduces energy costs and minimizes dangerous light penetration without reducing the overall brightness in the home.
Reduces heat gain through the roof.
Reduces energy consumption and lasts longer than traditional bulbs.
Utilizes perforated fiber cement soffit around perimeter of home (where allowed by code) and passive roof vents. Increases ventilation and reduces attic temperatures and moisture build up, resulting in lower cooling costs.
Each high efficiency system includes 14/16 SEER condensers with electronic spark ignition, one mechanical fresh air intake per unit and MERV 8 air filters for improved efficiency and indoor air quality.
Enables easy operation to schedule energy use and reduce electricity costs.
Stabilizes air pressure from room to room, creating more even temperatures throughout the home.
Meets or exceeds codes in all exterior, sloped and flat living area ceilings. This reduces utility costs and increases comfort by retaining the desired indoor temperature.
Promotes savings on energy usage.
Provides improved indoor air quality by removing allergens, pollutants and mold-producing moisture.
Engineering inspection before concrete is placed. To more evenly distribute the weight of the home over the entire area to avoid over-loading of the soil beneath and increase support and stability.
Every American Legend home is professionally inspected and certified by an independent, 3rd party energy efficiency rating provider, so you can have peace of mind that your new home meets or exceeds well-established energy requirements.
The Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Index is the industry standard by which a home's energy efficiency is measured. It's also the nationally recognized system for inspecting and calculating a home's energy performance. The lower the score, the more affordable, comfortable and efficient a home is.
