RESNET is a national standards-making organization that is recognized for building energy efficiency rating and certification systems by the U.S. Department of Energy, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. mortgage industry.

One of the energy efficient techniques is the Home Energy Rating System (HERS). Homes built to the specifications of this system (based on the 2006 International Energy Conservation Code) score a HERS Index of 100, which is a significant difference in comparison to older homes which score an average HERS Index of 130. The average score for new Darling Homes range between 60 and 70.

In addition to the RESNET Energy Smart program, Darling Homes implements other innovative building methods that work hand-in-hand with RESNET standards to create a quality and comfortable experience in both the home and environment.

Whether it’s the high utility bills during the hot, summer months or the energy-consuming appliances that are used on a daily basis, the average U.S. household spends approximately $5,550 per year on energy, according to the Alliance to Save Energy. However, homebuyers have the ability to reduce these costs by utilizing energy-efficient products, resources and appliances.

Here are the ways Darling Homes reduces environmental impact and energy consumption through energy and resource efficiency, enhanced water conservation, durability and moisture management and better air quality.

  • 16 SEER performance HVAC system designed to fit your particular home
  • Programmable thermostat to control the temperature and comfort of your home more efficiently
  • Energy-efficient gas cooking appliances and gas water heater
  • LED lighting, which reduces energy costs

 

For enhanced water conservation:

  • Water-conserving shower heads, faucets and ENERGY STAR® dishwasher
  • Drought tolerant landscaping and indigenous plants to enhance longevity and reduce maintenance
  • Installed irrigation system that’s zoned and equipped with rain sensor shut-off

 

For durability and moisture management:

  • Tightly sealed homes to protect and minimize maintenance associated with severe weather conditions and humidity
  • Thermal Envelope, which is an inspection of 35 areas in the home to ensure no leaks before the home is sheetrocked
  • Insulation and air sealant are properly installed to prevent air leakage for more efficient air conditioning
  • Covered exterior doors to reduce exposure to sun, rain and other elements
  • Duct systems designed per Air Conditioning Contractors of America and tested for leakage on every home
  • Proper flashing installed at all areas of the home
  • Radiant barrier roof decking reduces heat absorption and improves HVAC efficiency
  • Electrical conduit prevents pinching in the electrical conduit line
  • Drywall corners reduce settlement cracks
  • California corners allow insulation at interior corners

 

For better air quality:

  • Proper ventilation optimizes clean indoor air for you to breathe and reduces moisture and humidity within the home
  • Increased comfort with even temperatures and airflow
  • Return air in all bedrooms aid in balanced room pressure, temperature control and air exchange
  • Kitchen and bath ventilation are run to the outside

 

These building methods and environmentally-friendly products and procedures showcase Darling Homes’ commitment to helping provide not only a safe and healthy environment, but the ideal living experience for its homebuyers.

A Wreath’s Warm Welcome

Create a warm and inviting atmosphere as soon as guests arrive at your front door with a homemade wreath that is tailored to your unique style.

From burgundy to rustic tan, golden yellow to rich, chocolate brown, enhance your wreath with the colors of the season using leaves, fresh hydrangeas, berry branches and pinecones woven together with a seasonal burlap ribbon or twine.

At the wreath’s center, place a monogram door hanger or a weathered wooden sign that’s painted with your favorite fall saying such as “Welcome”, “Fall”, or “Thankful”. This simple touch will complete the look.

A Picturesque Pumpkin Display

Celebrate autumn’s splendor with a picturesque pumpkin display.

Those who enjoy the beauty of tradition will be delighted by a stylish ensemble that uses gourds, mums and pumpkins of various sizes. Create a gorgeous arrangement by artfully stacking them in barrels or positioning them on a tiered, wooden stand.

An Enchanting Fall Glow

Here’s your chance to complete the inviting entry that guests, neighbors and passers-by can’t help but notice.

Find Your Energy Efficient Home with Darling Homes Houston

In search of a new home? Want a home built with high quality construction and advanced, green-certified technologies? Find your energy efficient home with Darling Homes Houston.

For more than 28 years, Darling Homes has focused on creating a home that buyers feel proud to live in, combining custom details, a variety of design options, flexible floor plans and premier locations to fit the unique life and style of every customer.

In addition to these key elements, Darling Homes ensures each home is built to the standards of the Green Built Gulf Coast (GBGC) certification program. With more than 1,200 homes built throughout Greater Houston under the GBGC program, Darling Homes continues to improve its home designs by implementing these eco-friendly building methods and new, innovative technologies.

What are the benefits of owning a green-certified home?

Energy Efficiency

The average person spends approximately 90 percent of their time inside their home and, surprisingly, air pollutant levels inside your home can be up to ten times higher than the air pollutants you breathe outdoors, according to the United States Environment Protection Agency.

The practices used in building GBGC-certified homes significantly improve the air quality inside the home by reducing greenhouse gas emissions by as much as 33 percent.

Certified products range from building materials, insulation and flooring to countertops and appliances, as well as irrigation and landscaping. Darling Homes has also adopted the use of LED lights throughout its homes, resulting in greater energy efficiency and reduced energy costs for the consumer.

Durability and Moisture Protection

Darling Homes’ new building technology, the Zip System, protects the quality and structure of the home during the construction process and beyond. The Zip System is structurally stronger and more resistant to high winds. Designed to reduce air leakage and prevent moisture from seeping in from the outside, the roof and wall system acts as a housewrap and includes an integrated water and air resistant barrier installed in two, simple steps with panels and taped seams.

Homes are tightly sealed for more efficient air conditioning, protection from extreme weather conditions and humidity, which minimizes maintenance associated with severe weather.

Reduced Maintenance Costs

Incorporating green building methods not only increases the value of your home, but results in higher savings on utility bills and lower maintenance costs.

The average person spends approximately $1,200 per month on home maintenance fees. In comparison to the average home, green homes provide a 13 percent reduction in maintenance fees and consume less energy by as much as 26 percent.

To see these homes in action, visit Darling Homes’ model home at Parkway Terrace in West Memorial, Stillwater in Conroe and Harvest Green in Richmond.

The new model homes at Parkway Terrace and Stillwater utilize the latest green practices, including the Zip System and energy-efficient LED lights.

Nestled among acres of lush greenery and waterways, Darling Homes at Harvest Green is a community built for sustainability. The neighborhood is designed for low impact on the natural setting, with homes that combine distinctive architectural details and thoughtfully crafted spaces to maximize livability and luxury. Each home also features its own garden.
