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.
HVAC Unit and Duct Sizing
We incorporate energy efficiency into our homes because we know the outcome will be a top quality and 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 EPA and Air Conditioning Contractors of America standards.
ENERGY STAR® Rated Light Fixtures
To use less energy, help protect the environment, and save money, our homes are equipped with ENERGY STAR rated light fixtures. These fixtures are a combination of attractive design and quality, which provides homeowners with the best energy efficiency levels available today!
ENERGY STAR® Rated Dishwasher
Using 3 gallons less water per load, ENERGY STAR rated dishwashers do not only save you the cost of the water, but also the costs it would take to heat them.
Verified and Certified Green Home Building
Nowadays, several companies claim and promise to be “green.” In fact, most of them believe that by only adding a few visible energy features, they become green homebuilders! However, the truth of the matter is that we (Coventry Homes and sister company Wilshire Homes) are the only homebuilders in Austin to be certified GREEN by the Green Built Texas program.
A renowned green building certification system, Green Built Texas provides third party verifications to ensure 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. It is cost efficient to maintain and operate and uses natural resources efficiently. Not only this, these homes are also inspected for performance, all of which results in a healthier, cleaner, and cost-efficient home for you and your beloved family.
Water Efficiency PEX Plumbing System
Your home is fitted with a PEX plumbing system and various other water efficient fixtures to ensure optimal water efficiency. This system comes with a configuration manifold, which dedicates hot water lines to each outlet in order to maintain peak efficiency during water usage. This, as a result, causes hot water to reach the fixtures twice as fast as non-manifold systems.
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.
16 SEER 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 lower carbon footprint, lower energy costs, and less noise.
Third Party Energy Inspections
Third party energy inspections will be provided when your home is complete to show that your home is energy efficient. Inspection companies will thoroughly assess your building to ensure it meets all quality and energy efficiency standards.
R-30 flat ceiling and R-13 wall insulation ensures your home has the maximum comfort levels.
