Green living isn't a fad, it's a way of modern living, and Wilshire Homes, part of MHI Homebuilders, is committed to helping homeowners take advantage of all the modern advances in EcoSmart home technology.
The beauty of the EcoSmart features found in new Wilshire Homes is that not only are they good for the environment, they are good for homeowners. Each individual feature is an improvement, but when taken together, this comprehensive suite can help lower utility bills while also improving air quality and water efficiency.
The Energy Star Certified features found in houses built by Wilshire Homes are state of the art and affect every room of the house. From top to bottom, no detail is overlooked in their mission to make homes as green and energy efficient as possible.
As part of the building process,Wilshire Homes performs blower door tests. This test ensures that the doors throughout the house are properly sealed, a feature that helps prevent air leakage, which in turn keeps utility bills low.
Another feature in the EcoSmart suite is a focus on air quality. Each HVAC - from the cooling unit to the ducting - is chosen based on a number of important criteria, such as the number of windows in a home. By doing this, each home receives a custom tailored HVAC system that meets or exceeds EPA and industry standards.
The construction of the home is just one part in the process of building a truly green home, which is why Wilshire Homes takes care to choose only highly rated and efficient appliances and lights. From Energy Star rated kitchen appliances to programmable thermostats, every facet of the home is taken into consideration by the Wilshire Homes team.
To ensure that each Wilshire Homes house meets their EcoSmart standards, they also provide each home with a qualified third-party energy inspection. This thorough inspection will evaluate just how effective the EcoSmart features are in each individual home to ensure compliance with Wilshire Homes' high energy efficiency and quality standards.
Wilshire Homes is leading the way in environmentally friendly home technology throughout the San Antonio and Austin areas with EcoSmart, the future of green living. For more information visit their website at http://www.wilshire-homes.com.
