Pitell Homes Energy Savings

Your brand new Pitell Home is designed to be efficient, which will save our planet and will keep your wallet happy.  Outdated appliances and inefficient construction can leave you hanging out to dry when it comes to your monthly utility bills.  Discover the energy saving benefits of building a brand new Pitell Home.

A Solid Seal

During the bare-bones construction of your new Pitell Home, all exterior and floor penetrations are caulked and sealed to virtually eliminate unwanted air infiltration throughout.  Additional sealant around doors and windows prevents air leakage and keeps your home comfy by maximizing the efficiency of your home’s heating and cooling system.

Energy Saving Windows

Windows play a huge part in the overall energy efficiency of your home. Low-E (low emissive) glass keeps extra heat out in the summertime and traps heat inside during the colder months, putting less stress on your heating and cooling system and keeping your Pitell Home at the desired temperature. As an added benefit, the Low-E UV protection helps prevent fading and discoloration of your furniture, carpeting, and flooring.  All of our homes come with working screens so you can let in the fresh air during mild weather. Living in Western Pennsylvania you never know what kind of weather to expect, but your Pitell home is always ready!

Using Energy When you Need it, and Not Wasting it When you Don’t

Programmable thermostats let you automatically regulate your new Pitell Home’s temperature throughout the day.  When the family is away, keep your home’s system running less and have it automatically readjust before you arrive, saving money and always having your Pitell Home at the ideal temperature when you walk in the door.

Quick-Recovery Gas Water Heater

Despite popular belief, tank size isn’t the only factor at play when it comes to your home’s water heater. An appliance with a fast recovery rate and the right-sized tank ensures that you don’t run out of hot water when you need it.  An Energy-Star rating here means you use less energy to run your system while maximizing efficiency. The added benefit of using natural gas as a fuel source helps save even more!

90% efficiency Ruud HVAC system

90% efficiency means that 90% of the gas used to power your system is converted into energy, which in turn is used to heat or cool your Pitell Home. Energy efficient HVAC systems are quieter and have motors that use less electricity.
