Today, you will want an energy-efficient home to avoid the higher costs of various utilities. There is a good chance that the cost of cooling or heating a home will continue to increase in the next 20 years. The home that you plan to buy today is an investment for the future, so you should choose Magnolia homes that are designed for energy efficiency. Here are some of the ways that the homes in our communities can give you a more comfortable environment while also helping you to save money.
Additional Insulation to Keep a Home Warm or Cool
A Magnolia home is built with additional insulation in the walls, ceilings, and floors to keep a home warmer or cooler. While you are using an air conditioner or furnace, you will feel fewer drafts from the areas around the windows or the baseboards. This will keep you and your family comfortable so that you won’t need to use fans during the summer for additional cooling or space heaters throughout the winter for extra heating.
The Highest Quality Windows to Prevent Cold or Hot Drafts
Rather than having single-pane windows installed, choose windows with multiple layers of glass that will prevent the loss of climate-controlled air. In addition, these windows are measured and installed correctly to avoid having any crevices around the frames where cold or hot air can enter.
Energy Efficient Lighting Fixtures
While installing light fixtures on the walls or ceilings of your new Magnolia home, we select attractive fixtures that are energy efficient. These light fixtures will use modern light bulbs that require less electricity and that will last longer, helping to save money.
Proper Air Duct Construction for Heating and Cooling a Home
Our design engineers think carefully about the air duct construction in your Magnolia Home. With the correct positioning of the ductwork, you will have a home that has better climate-control throughout the year. Accurate planning for air ducts can prevent cold or hot spots in your home.
Installation of Low-flow Plumbing Fixtures
You won’t waste any water in a Magnolia home because we install low-flow plumbing fixtures in the kitchen and bathrooms. This includes low-flow showerheads, toilets, and faucets that can reduce the use of water for daily cleaning and body care.
A Modern Water Heater that Uses Less Power
With a modern water heater in your home, you can have hot water at any time of the day or the night without paying a fortune to heat it. There are new standards concerning the manufacture of water heaters so that the devices will use less electricity or natural gas.
