Austin 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 14.5 SEER A/C Units 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.
  • 100% ENERGY STAR AppliancesBacked by the U.S. Department of Energy and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, ENERGY STAR appliances use less water and energy.
  • Programmable Thermostats.
  • Fresh Air SystemA 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 Efficient Gas FeaturesSolar panels, which are typically installed on the roof, are made up of photovoltaic (PV) cells and convert sunlight into direct current power.
  • Energy Efficient Water HeatersThis furnace offers an AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) of up to 92%, which uses less energy than traditional or lower AFUE furnaces.
  • 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.
BUILDING Practices
  • Radiant Barrier Insulative Roof SheathingRadiant Barriers reflect heat rather than absorbing it, lowering the cost of cooling your home during the dog days of summer.
  • Dual Pane, Low E, Argon Gas WindowsLow-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.
