Energy Smart Logo

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.

HealthSmart®

Features, finishes and filters that contribute to indoor comfort and air quality.

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 and WhisperGreen Select™ Ventilation Bath Fan provide better air filtration.

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.

Hers Rating

Maracay Homes’ commitment to green is for more than the planet and its resources—it’s for every family who wants their home to be as healthful, comfortable and cost-efficient as possible.

HERS Rating
N/A

This Home Energy Scale may be displayed on a model home or utilized in other marketing materials for homes within this community, illustrating a projected “HERS” Score Rating and potential utility savings. Energy efficiency ratings may be expressed as a HERS (Home Energy Rating System) Index rating. A HERS rating is a standard measurement of a home’s energy efficiency. HERS ratings were developed and regulated under the administration of the Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET). While the HERS reference scales are modified from time to time, according to RESNET, the U. S. Department of Energy has found that a “typical existing home” offered in the resale market has a HERS Index rating of 130, and the HERS reference home, the “typical new home” has a rating of 100, assuming that the home is built to the specifications of the 2006 International Energy Conservation Code. More information about the RESNET HERS Index rating can be found on RESNET’s website at http://www.resnet.us/energy-rating.Except as otherwise specified, an estimated rating is based a single test of a model of a floorplan similar to this home. Seller retains certified independent HERS energy raters to provide energy efficiency ratings for homes as designed pursuant to the applicable floor plan. The energy efficiency comparisons illustrated in this Home Energy Scale are based upon the average energy performance for specified home categories as determined by an independent HERS rater. Energy efficient features will vary depending upon the floor plans, elevations, design amenities/upgrades and the location of the home. Seller does not represent, warrant, or guarantee all homes sold by Seller have been individually rated. Further an energy rating score may or may not factor in all options and/or upgrades available to be installed in the home. Actual energy costs and/or energy usage are dependent on a number of factors, including utility rates, energy consumption, home maintenance, size of household, energy conservation practices, home orientation, and surrounding climate and weather conditions. Seller does not guarantee any specific level of electric and/or gas energy utility costs or savings. Seller has no business interest in any home energy efficiency evaluation organization or system, software program or rater. Seller reserves the right to modify or vary features or components so long as they are constructed in accordance with applicable laws. Information contained herein is based upon data obtained from third parties and should not be used as the only source of information when making purchasing decisions, investment decisions or tax decisions, or when executing other binding agreements.
