LIVINGSMART®

Our commitment to green began more than a decade ago — not just for the planet and its resources, but for every individual and family who wants a home that is as healthful, comfortable, and cost-efficient as possible.

Our LivingSmart® homes are designed with these 5 core components:

HomeSmart™

Smart technology that helps you stay comfortable, in control, connected and able to save energy -from anywhere.

Save energy at home or while you’re away via your smart phone or tablet. Temperature, lighting and much more can be controlled with just a tap, for your ongoing comfort or imminent arrival.

Control access and securely monitor who’s coming and going on your own smart device. Even when you’re away, you can let in service providers and guests. It’s the ultimate peace of mind at home or on the go.

Keeping you connected is key, and a home that’s pre-wired for a central wireless access point ensures that. Whether controlling your connected smart devices or streaming your favorite shows, your signal stays strong.

Some features of LivingSmart® may be optional or available in select communities only and are subject to changes or substitution without notice.

WATERSMART™

Our homes can help you save one of Earth’s most precious resources.

Our Delta WaterSense® faucets, low-flow showerheads and toilets and ENERGY STAR® dishwashers reduce water waste to help save you money. Add an optional tankless water heater with a recirculating pump to prevent even more water and money from slipping down the drain.

We respect our desert climate by featuring drought-tolerant plants, materials and techniques in many of our communities, and including climate-controlled, water-sensing irrigation valves in our homes.

Some features of LivingSmart® may be optional or available in select communities only and are subject to changes or substitution without notice.

EARTHSMART™

Sustainable materials, recycling and the conservation of natural resources.

Engineered wood products resist warping, splitting and shrinking while preserving our forests.

Doing our part to recycle also means making it easier for you to do the same. Our Recycle/Reuse program conserves natural resources by putting unused materials back to work. Built-in kitchen recycle bins and a solar system are all ways we support your earth-friendly endeavors.

Some features of LivingSmart® may be optional or available in select communities only and are subject to changes or substitution without notice.

HEALTHSMART™

Features, finishes and filters that contribute to indoor comfort and control.

Low-VOC, water-based interior paint, caulking and adhesives ensure a healthier living environment for your family.

Sealed combustion furnaces and central vacuum systems help keep indoor air quality at healthy levels. Our MERV8 HVAC filters provide better air filtration, and quiet bathroom fans with built-in humidistat controllers reduce moisture and automatically turn off when the humidity level has dropped.

Control access and monitor who’s coming and going on your personal smart device. Even when you’re away, you can let in service providers and guests. It’s the ultimate peace of mind from the comfort of your home or on the go.

Some features of LivingSmart® may be optional or available in select communities only and are subject to changes or substitution without notice.

ENERGYSMART™

Technology to reduce energy consumption and utility bills.

Committed to energy savings

Energy-efficient heating and cooling systems reduce your overall electrical usage. Smart thermostats let you connect via phone or tablet to control your home’s temperature, keeping it comfortable and automatically saving energy when you’re away. Solar packages let you harness the power of the sun to lower or even eliminate electrical bills.

Tankless water heaters heat water only when you need it and Energy Star™ appliances such as dishwashers, refrigerators, washers and dryers save you money as well as help you conserve energy. LED lights throughout the home help reduce energy usage while lasting longer than traditional bulbs.

Materials that help you maintain a comfortable home temperature also reduce energy bills. Our radiant barrier roof sheathing reflects the sun and weather stripping reduces temperature fluctuation. Low E-window glass keeps heat and cold outside as it protects interior items from sun damage.

Benefits of LivingSmart®

We believe green homes are better built homes. Greater comfort, better efficiency and more savings, these are just some of the added benefits of a LivingSmart® home.

5 Ways you benefit from your new home.

LivingSmart - Health

HEALTH

The eco-sensitive materials, paint and filtration in every LivingSmart® home means better indoor air quality for you and your family.

EnergyStar - Savings

SAVINGS

Better insulation, EnergyStar® appliances, programmable thermostats, water-stingy faucets, toilets and shower heads, and optional tankless water heaters mean significantly lower energy and water bills, all year long.

HVAC Bills - Comfort

COMFORT

Cool in the summer. Warm in the winter. Be comfortable year round without having to worry about big HVAC bills. Better insulation systems, our radiant roof barrier and double-pane Low-e windows make all the difference.

Engineered wood - Durability

DURABILITY

Engineered wood is less prone to warping and stronger than conventional lumber. Many of the latest plumbing, electrical, HVAC, insulation and stucco systems are designed for longer, happier lives than those in homes just a few years old.

Conservation

CONSERVATION

From the way we develop land and construct houses to the way our homes operate and the materials they contain, natural and non-renewable resources are conserved all along the way. It adds up to big savings for the Earth, and for you.
