Houston 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
  • High Efficiency 15-SEER Systems
  • ENERGY STAR Appliances
  • Programmable ThermostatsHomeowners can save on average $180 a year by using a programmable thermostat that allows you to automatically control your home's temperature.
  • Fresh Air Ventilation & Allergy Reducing FilterA 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.
  • Low E, Dual Pane Vinyl Windows (per series)Solar panels, which are typically installed on the roof, are made up of photovoltaic (PV) cells and convert sunlight into direct current power.
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.
  • Aerators on all Bath FaucetsBy 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.
  • Energy Efficient Water HeaterThis water-saving technique conserves energy by recalculating hot water, so the faucet will provide it instantly upon demand.
BUILDING Practices
  • Radiant Barrier Roof Decking (per series)R-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.
  • Third Party InspectionsTaylor 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%.
  • Radiant Barrier Insulative Roof Sheathing at select communitiesRadiant Barriers reflect heat rather than absorbing it, lowering the cost of cooling your home during the dog days of summer.
  • Low Volatile Organic Compound PaintsCFL 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.
  • Energy Saving CFL Lighting
  • Zurn Pex Manifold Plumbing SystemLow-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.
