Energy Performance

Style does not outdo substance in Latsis homes; our E-Star energy performance features are equally impressive. With 90%+ efficient furnaces, 13 SEER air conditioners, R-21 blown-in blanket (BIBS) insulation, sealed duct work, Andersen Low-E windows and 2x6 exterior wall construction, you will appreciate the energy savings in your E-Star five-star-rated home. Energy savings and performance translates not only into lower utility bills but also a more consistent, comfortable living environment. With properly sealed duct work, you will no longer experience the “hot room – cold room” issue common in your average home. Latsis Custom Homes, LLC puts its Built Green Hall Of Fame expertise to work in every house it builds.

Latsis Custom Homes LLC has enhanced its leadership position in E-Star energy performance and sustainable building practices by introducing photovoltaic solar pre-wire in all of its new homes. Photovoltaic solar panels provide electricity to the home and excess power can be sold back to the utility. While superior insulation and HVAC duct sealing provide the necessary foundation for energy savings and performance, solar is the icing on the cake.  Jim Latsis, principal of Latsis Custom Homes LLC, offers this perspective, “Energy performance is a component of quality that customers should expect. Efficient energy use makes a home more comfortable, reduces its carbon footprint, and improves its value over time.”  Latsis initiated its solar program on planned homes in Lowry’s East Park neighborhood and in Stapleton’s Urban Estates.
