Southern California Area New Homes
Lessening our carbon footprint is something that's on the minds of many homebuyers these days.
Rest assured, your Taylor Morrison home is built to reduce that footprint while maximizing your energy efficiency. We're doing our part to preserve the environment for future generations. It's just one more way that your Taylor Morrison home is inspired by you.
ENERGY Efficiency
  • Insulation to Reduce Energy Consumption Families using an energy efficient air conditioning unit could reduce 20–30% of their energy consumption. A/C units, like Taylor Morrison's 13 & 14–SEER units, lower the amount of energy consumed to cool down your home.
  • HVAC System with Smart ThermostatBacked by the U.S. Department of Energy and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, ENERGY STAR appliances use less water and energy.
  • 50% High Efficiency Lighting in KitchensHomeowners can save on average $180 a year by using a programmable thermostat that allows you to automatically control your home's temperature.
  • Exterior Lighting with Photo-sensorsA popular method for improving energy efficiency, jump ducts help balance air pressure in your home. This helps keep air from escaping, reducing the amount of power used for heating or cooling.
  • ENERGY STAR AppliancesSolar panels, which are typically installed on the roof, are made up of photovoltaic (PV) cells and convert sunlight into direct current power.
  • Prewire for Solar Panels (per community)This furnace offers an AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) of up to 92%, which uses less energy than traditional or lower AFUE furnaces.
WATER–SAVING Fixtures
  • Low Flow Toilets and Shower HeadsInstalling a low flow toilet translates to almost two gallons of water saved, per flush. When coupled with a low flow shower head, you will consume less water.
  • Tankless Water Heater at select communitiesBy only heating water when it's needed, tankless water heaters can cut water-heating expenses by 30%. According to Energystar.gov, that can be up to more than $100 per year on gas bills for the typical family.
  • Drought-resistant Landscape.
BUILDING Practices
  • Radiant Barriers at Roof SheathingR-value is the measure of a material's resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-value, the more resistant a material is to heat flow. Taylor Morrison's R-13/R-19/R-24 insulation means your home stays warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, translating to savings on your monthly electric bill.
  • Low-e Windows and Sliding Glass DoorsTaylor Morrison insulates your home's attic to resist air flow to help cool and heat your home, plus it reduces your home's energy use by up to 40%.
  • Low VOC Water-based PaintsRadiant Barriers reflect heat rather than absorbing it, lowering the cost of cooling your home during the dog days of summer.
  • Engineered Framing MembersCFL bulbs can use up to 75% less energy and last up to nine years longer than incandescent bulbs, saving you money on energy bills and replacement bulbs.
  • Engineered Flooring and Bath CountertopsLow-E vinyl windows are coated to control the transfer of heat. Argon gas - a nontoxic, clear and odorless gas - fills the space between the window panels to reduce the transfer of heat between the inside and outside.
