Our homes are carefully constructed following stringent Eco Smart standards. Not only are they suitable for a wide range of aesthetic tastes, but they also retain their curb appeal whilst being more environmentally responsible, healthier, and efficient. The bottom line is that when you buy from Coventry, you benefit from improved home comfort, increased resale value, long-term savings, and protection from ever-increasing energy costs.
Green Home Building
Coventry homes are constructed with the aim of improving performance across several metrics. These include water efficiency, enhanced indoor environment quality, energy savings, and proper management of resources. This leads to the construction of homes that are environmentally responsible and energy efficient.
Eco Smart homes provide an overall healthier living environment. They are cost-efficient to maintain and operate and use natural resources efficiently. These homes result in a healthier, cleaner, and more cost-efficient home for you and your family.
HVAC Unit and Duct Sizing
We incorporate energy efficiency into our homes because we know the outcome will be a top quality, healthy home. Due to this reason, each home built under the Eco Smart Program comes with its own heating and cooling system that is based on the size of the home, number of windows, and several other energy efficiency components like ventilation and insulation. We properly size the HVAC equipment according to the Manual J of the Air Conditioning Contractors of America.
Water Efficiency PEX Plumbing System
A PEX plumbing system maintains water quality, is more energy efficient and results in reduced maintenance and greater reliability.
We control both the temperature and humidity levels in each home through the use of a programmable thermostat, providing greater energy savings and comfort to homeowners. Being programmable, it allows you the ability to control the temperature according to your desire and schedule.
All penetrations of floors and walls, as well as joints between building materials, are sealed with polyurethane caulk in order to reduce air infiltration.
Blower Door Test
Did you know that air leakage is responsible for more than 30% of a home’s heat loss? Unlike other homebuilders, we at Coventry perform a third party “blower door test” to identify and correct any air leaks around your home.
High Efficiency A/C System
The A/C system requires less energy to run, is a lot more efficient, and has a higher Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. As a result, you benefit from a smaller carbon footprint, lower energy costs, and less noise.
Third Party Energy Inspections
Third party energy inspections are provided twice, during construction and when your home is complete, to show that your home is energy efficient. Inspection companies will thoroughly assess your home to ensure it meets all quality and energy efficiency standards.
R-38 flat ceiling and R-13 wall insulation ensure your home is both comfortable and energy-efficient.
