This winter has been very busy out at Serosun Farms. We have begun working with our buyers on designing their dream homes, incorporating their lifestyles as well as sustainable and energy efficient elements into their residences. Here are a few studies by one of our award winning architects for one of our estate members as we understand the site characteristics, sunlight patterns and monthly wind patterns as we truly design an energy efficient home.
These studies are a very important aspect in designing high performance and energy efficient homes. For example, they allow us to specify the appropriate sized geothermal heating and cooling system for the specific lot and specific home, avoiding over-designing or an over-sized system, providing a significant cost savings to the homeowner by designing it correctly. It also helps to tell us where to place windows and other elements for passive design. Houses with south-facing glass, adequate natural ventilation provide additional natural reduction in heating and cooling loads providing further cost savings on energy and utility bills for the homeowner.
Check back for some examples of the lifestyle stories we are helping to design and incorporate into our buyer’s dream homes!
