Texas (PRWEB) June 30, 2012

In 1988, Coventry Homes began building new homes across Texas with an emphasis on flexible floorplans and luxurious interior details. As environmental concern has risen dramatically over the past decade, Coventry Homes has partnered with various city homebuilders' associations to implement "eco-smart" programs designed to reduce home energy costs and homeowners' carbon footprint. Because of the company's dedication to environmental responsibility, Energy Star has recognized Coventry Homes with the 2012 Leadership in Housing Award for its communities in Dallas, Austin, and San Antonio.

Energy Star acknowledges homebuilders based on their commitment to providing the nation's homebuyers with Energy Star certified homes. In 2012, participating construction companies built 127,000 Energy Star certified custom homes across the country, adding to a total of about 1.3 million. Because of energy-efficient upgrades, Americans saved nearly $400 million on utility bills last year, and avoided home-related greenhouse gas emissions parallel to those of over 510,000 vehicles.

Coventry Homes aim to retain houses' aesthetic and curb appeal while they function with healthier, environmentally friendly features. The company intends for homeowners to benefit from long-term savings as they decrease energy costs and increase home comfort and resale value. While each city has its own environmental building standards, Coventry Homes focuses on environmental modifications for air quality, water efficiency, resource efficiency, and moisture management.

During construction, Coventry Homes contractors cover ductwork in masking to prevent dust from infiltrating air quality upon completion. Every new home utilizes mechanically controlled fresh air intakes in conjunction with high performance air filters. Water-efficient fixtures and smart plumbing systems naturally keep water usage to a minimum, while drought-resistance plants add to home aesthetic without the need for excessive hydration during summer months.

Coventry Homes also uses engineered lumber in construction, which composites recycled wood to cut back on new raw materials. Additionally, it contributes value to homes due to its improved integrity that can support heavy loads for long spans of time. A drainage plane continuously blocks water that can seep behind wall cladding, and a vapor barrier underneath foundation improves air sealing and insulation efforts to maximize overall energy efficiency.

Homebuyers looking to customize a home from the ground up may find an ideal solution in Coventry Homes' "Build on Your Lot" program. Clients peruse through an extensive library of floorplans detailing realized designs for other customers. The "Build on Your Lot" program prioritizes flexibility and creativity to conceive a home built around clients' specific needs, lifestyle and budget.
