Thanks to technological advancements, sustainable and eco-friendly homes have grown more popular over the years. Here are six sustainable housing trends to watch.

Sustainable Housing Trends

1. Energy-Efficient Features

More and more homes are implementing cost-effective, energy-efficient features. While high-performance features come with initial upfront costs, the investment reduces operating costs in the long run and improves quality of life. These state-of-the-art features provide a safe and healthy indoor environment for you and your family. 

2. Solar Energy

Installing solar panels on homes helps power your home while helping you save money on your energy bills, earn tax credits or rebates, and decrease your carbon footprint.

3. AeroBarrier

AeroBarrier is a revolutionary sealing technology that fills gaps as tiny as a hair follicle that can leak energy. Reduced envelope leakage means improved energy efficiency, less dust, fewer pests, and less outdoor pollution entering your home. 

4. High Efficiency Windows

At Wickenburg Ranch, our homes use windows with a low U-factor. The U-factor is a value indicating the insulation performance of the window. The lower the U-factor, the greater a window’s resistance to heat flow and the better its insulating properties.

5. Architectural Shading

The front entry and extended covered patios on Wickenburg Ranch Homes are designed to shield doors and windows from direct sunlight.

6. LED Lighting

High efficiency LED lighting is included in your Wickenburg Ranch home. LED lights not only have superior energy efficiency, but they also have an exceptionally long operating lifespan.
