2014 Energy Efficient Premier Model Home Deemed Success
The 2014 Premier Model Home was a big success! Over 1,500 people toured the home at Chaffee Crossing in three days between May 30th and June 1st. Thanks to everyone who stopped by. The event was sponsored by Arkansas Valley Electric and Cobblestone Homes. Arkansas Valley Member Service Manager, Greg Davis, said “The Model Home is a chance for us to demonstrate the latest in residential energy efficiency by working with a builder who understands and uses the latest in energy building practices, technology, and products. Because of the airtight construction and geothermal heating and cooling we believe the average family will be able to heat and cool this home for less than $50.00 a month.”
A few of the energy-efficient features of the home are:
- Smart home features including lighting control, audio/video control, comfort, security control, and digital energy monitoring.
- Heated interior floors.
- Marathon electric water heater.
- Heat pump water heater with AC recapture system.
- Geothermal heating and cooling.
- Low-E windows.
In addition to being very energy efficient, the approximately 3,000 Square foot home features a theater room with 96-inch projection screen, an outdoor living center with built-in BBQ, and an elegant kitchen with a walk-in pantry.
