Civano – A Green Community of Homes with Many Green Features located on the East side of Tucson.

Armory Park Del Sol – A Neighborhood of homes with Many Green Features located near down town Tucson.

What makes a home a green home? Well, that’s a question that will probably never get an answer. Some homes may have 10 green features that are completely different from the 10 green features in the home across the street. Which one is green?

And then there is the question of how many green features does a home have to have to be called green? I don’t know if this will ever be solved, but I do have a point. Tucson has a lot of homes with green features.

Some of the articles you will read, including this one will refer to green homes. For writing purposes, its quicker and makes its point. On this site, any time green home is used, it means home with green features.

Fortunately, today there is an increased awareness when it comes to building homes with green features EcoBroker_Logo_Green_Realtor_Tucson_Real_Estate_Photo.jpgin Tucson as well as other cities. From the general public to government officials, green building is definitely catching on.

Other subcontractors and service providers in Tucson are getting more involved as well. Landscapers, builders, suppliers, city services and utility companies are moving in the green direction.

The goal of a Green home is to achieve a good balance between affordability, energy efficiency and conservation of resources while maintaining a healthy, durable and comfortable home.

Today’s Green homes utilize:

  • Recycled materials
  • Super insulation
  • Solar hot water
  • Solar heating
  • Gray and rainwater harvesting
  • Active solar and passive convection cooling
  • Solar shading

One of the nice things about homes with green features is that while they are conserving resources, my clients enjoy beautiful, comfortable, energy efficient homes. And of course, lower utility bills. Gotta like that.

Green Spec Home in Tucson
Green Spec Home in Tucson

The home next to this text was a home that my client purchased as a “spec” home. One year later he listed that home with me and we sold it. It was built to SW Gas Energy Advantage+ standards, had a 14 seer air conditioning system and low e windows.

In new construction, I’ve noticed some builders are really making an effort to build more green, like Tim Polito (the builder who built the first LEED Certified Home in Southern Arizona), while others are still catching on. However, most have started offering more green options.

One option I’ve noticed more Tucson builders are offering is radiant barrier insulation. It is ideal for Tucson and one of the easiest items to add to your new home. Its inexpensive and drops your energy bills dramatically. It is said to reflect up to 97% of radiant heat and act as a vapor and radon barrier.

Contact me for more help with homes (any shade of green) in Tucson.
