Advantages of Energy Efficient Homes

Homebuyers are becoming increasingly sophisticated when it comes to the advantages of energy‑efficient homes. The great thing about purchasing a new home from Cavender Homes is that every home we build includes our SmartSuite, which takes energy efficiency to a whole new level.

Cavender Homes is redefining smart in smart technology with our innovative SmartSuite. SmartSuite combines energy efficiency, technology, quality, and care in one amazing package.

If energy efficiency in your new home is important to you, let’s take a look at how to make your home more energy‑efficient and the benefits of doing so.

Energy Efficient Homes Mean Lower Utility Costs

One of the most exciting effects of purchasing an energy‑efficient home is reduced energy bills. Spending less money on electricity and water means more money to spend on something else!

Every Cavender home comes standard with a high‑efficiency Trane® HVAC unit that meets or exceeds Energy Star® guidelines. You’ll also enjoy Rheem® Tankless Water Heaters for on‑demand, consistent, and endless hot water. When it comes to keeping your lawn healthy, our ST8I‑WIFI Smart Irrigation with an indoor WiFi timer/ controller and 8‑Zone Rainbird® irrigation system will ensure your new home is better for the environment and easier on your pocketbook.

If you’re looking for even more ways to embrace an eco‑friendly lifestyle, you might consider making the switch to renewable energy. Many utility companies now offer sustainable packages that allow you to use energy that’s been produced from renewable sources only. In many instances, this is even cheaper than standard rates, so you can cut your costs and your carbon footprint in one fell swoop. Cavender Homes offers the opportunity to upgrade to a Tesla Solar Roof.

Lower Home Insurance Premiums? Maybe!

There are several factors that impact how much you pay for home insurance. Some of the more well‑known is the size of your property, security systems you have in place, and whether your property is located in a flood plain. Many people are unaware that the energy efficiency of your home may affect insurance prices too. Many insurance companies offer discounts to those with Smart Home appliances, and energy‑efficient windows and doors. Check with your home insurance company to see if they offer discounts for energy‑efficient homes.

A More Comfortable Home

If you’ve ever lived in a home that doesn’t have the latest energy‑efficient features, you know how it can impact your daily life. Windows and doors that aren’t sealed tightly let cold and hot air into your home – and you can almost see money flying out those windows as a result!

Homes that aren’t energy efficient may have noticeable differences in temperature from one room to another or cold spots on walls. In some cases, the temperature can even vary considerably from one side of a room to the other!

When you choose a new home at Morning Ridge built by Cavender Homes, these inconveniences and inefficiencies are a thing of the past. We use the very best home insulation to help keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

Increased Home Value

According to, some of the most important things to look for in energy‑efficient homes include energy‑efficient windows, efficient water systems, and the very best HVAC systems. Not only will these choices make your home more comfortable and save you money every month when your energy bills come in, they will also increase your home’s value when it’s time to sell.

This is yet another reason a Cavender Home with SmartSuite is an excellent choice. You’re assured of having the best energy‑efficient materials in every area of your home.

Improved Air Quality

When your home has optimal energy efficiency levels, you’ll be using your heating and air‑cooling systems less frequently. This can help to enhance the air quality in your home, as well as reducing the number of pollutants that impact the environment. This is good for everyone, especially if you or a family member have conditions such as allergies or asthma. Improving the air quality within your home creates a healthier living space while helping to protect the environment.
