LP® TechShield® Radiant Barrier features a thin, durable layer of aluminum laminated to the OSB roof sheathing to create a highly effective radiant barrier reducing the attic temperature by as much as 30 degrees and cutting monthly air conditioning bills up to 17%. (lpcorp)
R42 ATTIC INSULATION
R-Value indicates a product's resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-value, the greater the insulating power the more energy you will save. A home built to code in this area would have a minimum attic R-value of 30. Ence Homes' standard attic insulation is fire resistant, formaldehyde-free, and has an R-value of 38, which is 21% more insulation than a home built to code. The Ence Green Package's R42 has 29% more attic insulation. (certain teed)
16 SEER AIR CONDITIONER
The Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) is a measure of the cooling efficiency of air conditioners. The higher the SEER number, the more efficient the system is at converting electricity into cooling power. A home built to code in our area would have a minimum SEER of 13. The Ence Green Package features Bryant's® Preferred 16 SEER Air Conditioner, which will reduce monthly air conditioning bills by as much as 11%. (bryant)
PLUS 90% AFUE HIGH EFFICIENT FURNACE
A furnace's Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) indicates as a percentage how much energy is being converted to heat. For example, an AFUE of 90 means that 90% of the fuel is being used to warm your home, while the other 10% escapes as exhaust with the combustion gases. A home built to code in our area would have a minimum AFUE of 80. The Ence Green Package features Bryant's® Legacy Line Plus 90 Gas Furnace, which delivers up to a 95.5% AFUE rating.(bryant)
Jump ducts are used to equalize room-to-room temperature and air pressure and improve energy efficiency. A register on the ceiling of the room is connected through flexible ductwork to a register in the hallway's ceiling. When the bedroom door is closed, air exits the room through the jump duct into the hallway, and then moves through the hallway to the main return duct. This system allows air to move easily from one room to another equalizing temperature and pressure throughout your home.
A tightly sealed home improves comfort and indoor air quality while reducing utility and maintenance. Ence Homes strives to ensure that its homes are sealed correctly and offers additional ceiling penetration caulking (around electrical fixtures and HVAC registers) to enhance the effective ENERGY STAR standards.

COMPACT FLUORESCENT LIGHTING (CFL)
An ENERGY STAR qualified compact fluorescent light bulb will save about $30 over its lifetime and pay for itself in about 6 months. Ence Homes uses soft white colored CFL's, which provide a warm, full glow, similar to incandescent bulbs. (energy star)
The Rain Bird® Rain Check monitors rainfall levels and automatically overrides the controller to prevent unnecessary irrigation cycles and reduce your utility bills. Adjustable stainless steel sensing probes offer the flexibility of triggering the rain shutoff between 1/8" and 1/2" of precipitation. Once triggered, it does not change irrigation programs, but automatically interrupts the watering cycle. The Water in rain collector pan evaporates faster than soil moisture to permit watering and automatically returns to the normal cycle. (rain bird)
When cooking, gases, smoke, steam, and grease will rise up in the hot air and should be caught by a range top or microwave hood and vented outside. Exterior ventilation prevents these fumes from lingering in your home which could cause damage to furnishings as well as air quality.
