Energy Efficient Cooling

 

Comfortable summer temperatures.

 

Energy bill savings, energy efficient cooling system.

 

The Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) measures how much cooling a system puts out for each unit of energy it consumes. The higher the SEER rating, the more efficiently the air conditioner operates. The standard SEER rating for new construction homes in New Mexico is 14. At KT Homes, we install a higher efficiency 16 SEER system in your new home.  You will use less electricity while keeping your home cool during the hot summer months.

Insulated Foundation

 

Warmer floors in the winter.

 

Energy bill savings, reduced heat transfer.

 

Insulating your new home’s foundation is a crucial element in building an energy efficient home. We insulate your foundation with a rigid Styrofoam board, serving as a barrier between your foundation and the outside environment. This barrier helps regulate the temperature of your flooring by preventing heat from transferring into or out of your home through the foundation. An insulated foundation provides more home comfort during temperature extremes and helps save you money on your utility bills.

Fresh Air Management

 

Fresh air feel.

 

No stale indoor air.

 

Today’s new homes are sealed tightly for energy efficiency, but this can make the air stale. Opening windows brings fresh air into your home, but can also let in allergens, contaminants, and bugs. We install Lennox® Healthy Climate® ventilation systems to replace stale indoor air with clean outdoor air—making your home feel fresher and less stuffy, with little to no energy loss.

A Cooler Attic

 

Comfortable home temperatures.

 

Energy bill savings, seals heat out of the attic.

 

Extreme attic heat compromises the effectiveness of your air conditioning system. On a 95°F day, attic temperatures soar to between 150°F-160°F. At KT Homes, we spray foam insulate the underside of your roof, sealing the heat out of your attic. On average, our attic temperatures are only 7°F warmer than the thermostat setting—allowing you to maintain a comfortable temperature at an affordable price.

Energy Efficient Heating

 

Comfortable winter temperatures.

 

Energy bill savings, converts 95% of energy into heat.

 

Gas furnace heating systems are rated based upon how much energy they convert from gas into heat. A standard gas furnace will convert 80% of the energy from gas into heat. A KT Home's gas furnace converts 95% of the energy from gas into heat, making it significantly more efficient than the competition. You will use less gas and save more money during the cold winter nights.

LED Lighting

 

Energy bill saving, LED bulbs use less energy than traditional bulbs.

 

Directional lighting capability reduces wasted light and energy.

 

LED lights use about 50% less electricity than traditional incandescent, fluorescent, and halogen options. The lifespan of LED light bulbs is also significantly longer than the conventional bulb. At KT Homes we use all LED lighting to create a low maintenance and energy efficient lighting system—saving you money on electrical and maintenance costs.

Spay Foam Insulation

 

Comfortable temperatures year round.

 

Reduces outside noise.

 

Energy bills savings, helps to keep home warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

 

Spray foam insulation works far better than other popular types of insulation. The effectiveness of insulation is measured in terms of its thermal resistance or R-Value. The higher the R-value, the greater the insulating effectiveness. At KT Homes we utilize spay foam insulation. Our exterior walls have an R-Value of R-23. This reduces your energy costs by helping to keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
