Life in a New, Green Home
Earth Month seems the perfect time to celebrate living in an energy-efficient, green-built home. Pardee Homes has been building green for more than a decade, and our homeowners can enjoy the benefits of owning a green home for decades to come. We thought you might like to hear directly from some of our homeowners, on what it means to live in a LivingSmart® home built by Pardee Homes that is EnergySmart™, Earth Smart™, Water Smart™ and Health Smart™.
“When we walked into the sales offices for the first time we did not understand the green part of the building, and we did not realize the level of achievement Pardee has accomplished with green building. As we were educated on this major aspect of the home, it became a major factor in our decision to purchase with Pardee.
“We just got our last SCE bill and it was for $9.14. On a recent 47-degree morning, in our cozy Pardee home the temperature was 71 degrees without the heater or air conditioner. I cannot emphasize enough how much we love saving money with our GREEN Pardee home!”
-Mark Barron and Amy Hizon, homeowners at LivingSmart® Homes Fair Oaks Ranch® in Santa Clarita
“Pardee’s eco-friendly program was really huge to us. Solar power, low-E windows, air quality features—it just makes sense. Why not save money on your heating and air conditioning and water bills?”
-Hanh and Sergio Gonzalez, LivingSmart Homes at Fair Oaks Ranch
“I am astounded at the thermal performance of the house. On a 105- degree Southern California September day, I can leave the air conditioner off for the entire day and the internal temperature of my new home rises from 75 degrees in the morning to just 81 or 82 degrees by dinnertime.
I have friends who live a few miles away in a new home built by another builder and they are forced to run the air conditioning unit continuously from early morning just to keep the house in the 80s. The difference is incredible.”
-Josh Dugger and Chris Varela, Silverthorne at Canyon Hills in Lake Elsinore
“Our monthly energy savings are huge. We are paying half of what we paid before for utilities and this is certainly one of the things I like best about our new home.”
-Patricia and Rene Hernandez, LivingSmart Homes Tournament Hills in Beaumont
