Energy efficiency and environmental sustainability are more important than ever before. Finding a home that fulfills your dreams and contributes to a greener future is a top priority for many homebuyers. Tim Lewis Communities understands the need for sustainable homebuilding practices and has taken significant steps to create homes that minimize our environmental impact. Read on to discover how your new home from Tim Lewis Communities can help you achieve a more sustainable lifestyle while looking to the future and sparing your wallet.


Technological Advancements

There are multiple ways in which newer homes are looking to the future, both for sustainability and to save homeowners from unnecessary expenses. Tim Lewis Communities are carefully designed with environmental and economic efficiency in mind. Plus, they utilize the latest technology to ensure that you are investing not only in your dream home but also in the future of our planet and your financial success. 


Solar Power

One of the standout features of select Tim Lewis Communities is our commitment to harnessing solar power. All of our homes have solar panel system options that convert sunlight into electricity, reducing dependence on traditional energy sources. Solar power helps homeowners save money on their energy bills and contributes to a cleaner environment by reducing carbon emissions. Investing in a new home with solar panels makes you part of the green energy revolution and takes a step towards a more sustainable future. You also ensure that you’re not overpaying for power!


Tesla Technology

As an innovative luxury home builder, Tim Lewis Communities has partnered with Tesla to provide electric vehicle (EV) charging stations in select communities. Incorporating these plug-in stations into the community allows homeowners with electric cars to charge their vehicles right at home. This approach promotes sustainable transportation options and demonstrates our commitment to reducing carbon emissions.


Energy Efficiency Initiatives

Not only does Tim Lewis Communities incorporate advanced sustainable technology into our homes, but we also utilize green building practices to ensure that our homes are as energy efficient as possible. We want the people in our communities to thrive in all kinds of weather without paying an arm and a leg to be comfortable in their homes. 


Energy-Efficient Systems and Appliances

Tim Lewis Communities prides itself on constructing energy-efficient homes that are designed to reduce energy consumption without compromising on style or comfort. Our homes are equipped with state-of-the-art energy-efficient appliances, lighting fixtures, and heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. By leveraging the latest technological advancements in energy conservation, these homes significantly reduce the energy required for day-to-day living. This means more money back in your wallet and fewer natural resources being consumed. It’s a win-win for you and our planet!


Highest Quality Windows and Insulation

Energy efficiency goes beyond just appliances and power sources. Tim Lewis Communities understands the importance of proper insulation and high-quality windows to minimize heat transfer and maintain comfortable indoor temperatures. By incorporating top-of-the-line insulation materials and energy-efficient windows, our homes create a more stable internal climate, reducing the need for excessive heating or cooling. This saves you money on your energy bill, reduces overall energy consumption, and contributes to a greener environment. We also use 2×6 framing instead of the standard 2×4 to allow for increased insulation, leading to a more stable interior temperature.

How to Save Even More on Your Energy Bill

On top of the existing energy efficiency built into Tim Lews Communities, there are additional ways to maximize your energy efficiency and save money on your energy bill. These practices will ensure that you are conserving energy and curbing spending. Tips include: 


  • Unplugging Unused Electronics: Many electronic devices and appliances consume power even when turned off or in standby mode. Unplug devices such as phone chargers, laptops, TVs, and gaming consoles when not in use, or use power strips with an on/off switch to easily cut off power to multiple devices.
  • Optimizing Natural Lighting: Take advantage of natural light during the day by opening curtains and blinds to let sunlight in. This reduces the need for artificial lighting, saving energy and money. Additionally, consider using energy-efficient LED bulbs for your lighting needs, as they consume less electricity and have a longer lifespan.
  • Using Efficient Laundry Practices: Wash full loads rather than partial ones. Use cold water whenever possible, as heating water accounts for a significant portion of energy consumption in laundry. Additionally, consider air-drying your clothes instead of relying solely on a dryer, which consumes a substantial amount of energy.
  • Utilizing Smart Power Strips: Use smart power strips that automatically turn off power to electronic devices when not in use or during designated periods of inactivity. These power strips help eliminate phantom power consumption and save money and energy.
  • Limiting Water Usage: Conserving water also contributes to energy savings. Take shorter showers, fix any leaks promptly, and consider installing low-flow showerheads and faucets to reduce water usage. Efficient water usage reduces the energy required for water heating, resulting in lower energy bills.
