Energy Efficient Home Blends Great Looks, Big Savings
Exciting to again work with Austin’s A.R. Lucas Construction on this stunning entry in the 2018 Cool House Tour. The Cool House Tour is an annual event produced by Austin Energy Green Building and Texas Solar Energy Society that showcases homes designed and built with energy efficiency, comfort and regional design as their main goal.
Owners Work From Home
This home, and others on the tour, benefit from the latest in energy efficient practices, appliances, and fixtures. In this home the owners adapted traditional architectural techniques — tall windows for plenty of natural lighting and deep roof overhangs for summer shade — to achieve about 16% more in energy savings than similar Austin homes. Considering that the owners both work from home, the savings are even more impressive.
