Advanced Framing Techniques
Green building techniques allow builders to use less lumber while still meeting all the necessary strength and safety requirements. The Lucent uses fewer resources overall, making us more environmentally friendly than properties with traditional building techniques.
Extra Efficient Low-E Windows
Low-emissivity glass helps regulate the temperature in your home by reflecting heat back into the room without compromising the amount of light that comes in. This means that low-e windows can improve the thermal efficiency of your home, making it more comfortable and saving you money on energy bills in the process.
ENERGY STAR® Appliances
Reduce your energy consumption and your electricity bill by using ENERGY STAR® appliances. These appliances are designed to use less electricity than standard models without sacrificing features or performance.
Digital programmable thermostats increase energy efficiency and can help reduce your energy bills. Smart thermostats can also be controlled remotely, so you can adjust the temperature even when you’re not at home.
Extra Wall and Floor Insulation
We built The Lucent with extra wall and floor insulation for more internal temperature control that doesn’t cost you more. The Lucent’s insulation also lowers its energy usage, so it’s excellent for your pocket as well as the environment.
Water Efficient Plumbing Fixtures
We’ve implemented water efficient plumbing fixtures to cut down on water waste. This helps us save water and money, while still providing our residents with the quality fixtures they deserve.
Low VOC Paints and Sealants
Low VOC paint and sealants emit fewer fumes, improve air quality inside the building, and are environmentally friendlier than their traditional counterparts. At The Lucent, we prioritize the wellbeing of our residents, but it doesn’t hurt that using low VOC materials also helps us reduce our carbon footprint.
We aim to preserve the environment’s natural balance by using native plants in our design. Native plants have evolved over time to be well-suited to their particular climate and soil, which means we don’t need to use excess water or fertilizers to keep them thriving.
