BUILT for the FAMILY STRUCTURE
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
Verified and Certified Green Home Building
With the intense competition in the homebuilding industry, several companies promise and claim to be “green,” to gain the attention of homebuyers. In fact, most homebuilding companies believe that it only takes adding a few visible energy features to become “green.” However, we are proud to say that Coventry Homes is the only homebuilder in San Antonio to have achieved the GREEN certification from the Environments for Living (EFL) Program.
One of the most renowned green building certification systems, EFL ensures homes are built with the objective of providing enhanced performance across several metrics, including enhanced indoor environment quality, reduced CO2 emissions, energy savings, proper resource management, as well as water efficiency. This makes each one of our homes environmentally responsible and energy efficient unlike any other homebuilding company out there!
Our Eco Smart homes are cost efficient to operate and maintain, and provide an overall healthier living environment. Moreover, inspections are also carried out to assess performance, all of which results in a cost-efficient, healthier, and cleaner home for you and your beloved family.
Blower Door Test
Air leakages are accountable for over 30% of a home’s heat loss. To avoid this, each of our homes go through a third party “Boiler Door Test”, so that any air leakages can be identified and rectified as soon as possible.
HVAC Unit and Duct Sizing
To achieve a top quality and healthy home, we look for opportunities to incorporate energy efficiency. That is the reason why our homes come equipped with their own heating and cooling systems that are based according to the size of the home, number of windows, and numerous other energy efficiency components like insulation and ventilation. The HVAC equipment is then properly sized according to the EPA and Air Conditioning Contractors of America standards.
Water Efficiency PEX Plumbing System
To ensure optimal water efficiency, our homes are fitted with a PEX plumbing system, as well as numerous other water efficient fixtures. This plumbing system has a configuration manifold, which provides separate hot water lines to each outlet, so that peak efficiency can be maintained during water usage.
15/16 SEER A/C System
Since the A/C sports a high Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER), it requires less energy to run and is a lot more efficient as compared to other systems. As a result, you benefit from a lower carbon footprint, less noise, and lower energy costs.
To decrease air infiltration, all joints between building materials, as well as penetrations of floors and walls are sealed using polyurethane caulk.
Third Party Energy Inspections
While we say our homes are energy efficient, third party inspections prove the same. Inspection companies will assess your building thoroughly to ensure it meets all quality and energy efficiency standards.
