New Homes Enable Savings and Conservation through Energy Certified Features

Categories: Hallmark Homes Group, New Homes in Bucks County, New Homes in Montgomery County | Posted: February 15, 2019

Energy efficiency is a growing concern among homebuyers — inspiring quality builders to build homes that conserve power, save money and benefit the environment.

If you are interested in a residential property that is designed to reduce utility costs, enhance personal comfort and contribute to sustainability — consider one of the many new Hallmark homes in Bucks County and Montgomery County.

This establish homebuilder has recently achieved a new level of excellence — every newly-built homes in these communities will be Energy Star Certified. This means that these homes can save you up to 30% on monthly bills — allowing you to add up your savings while cutting down on greenhouse gas emissions.

Going Beyond Efficiency

An Energy Star Certified Hallmark home meets or exceeds the efficiency requirements established by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Every energy-based facet of construction including thermal enclosure, insulation, temperature control, water management, lighting fixtures and household appliances are verified to be in compliance by an independent testing agency.

Now, you can move into a new home in Bucks Countyor Montgomery County that has been meticulously constructed and professionally verified to provide the best in comfortable cost-effective living.

Eliminate Air Loss

The thermal enclosure of a home is the overall airtightness of every window, door and fitting that is connected to the outside air. Together, the integrity of how these components are installed preserves the indoor climate regardless of outdoor temperature. During the various stages of construction in an energy efficient house, specific methods are used to achieve an airtight structure.

Segments of ductwork for heating and cooling are installed with faultless connections, while entry points for electrical and plumbing conduit are sealed tight. Plus, high-performance windows and doors are properly anchored and set with caulking. These specialized features have built-in thermal breaks which keep the temperature outside from being conducted to the building’s interior.

Get Third Party Verification

Once the sheetrock is hung onto the framing studs and painted over, it is difficult for a buyer to determine whether or not that wall contains the proper level of insulation. An Energy Star home is inspected during construction to ensure this, and tested upon finishing to confirm.

This dynamic is achieved with partnership with an independent Home Energy Rater. Hallmark is building new homes in Bucks County and Montgomery County that are tested and verified by Energy Star. In addition to walls, this step also monitors and verifies proper insulation in floor-based power outlets, arm-level light switches and electrical junction boxes.

Breathe Clean Air

The quality of indoor air in a home is determined by the caliber of heating and air conditioning units installed by the builder. Air conditioners and furnaces draw in air from outside, treat it accordingly and distribute it throughout a structure via ductwork.

High-efficiency heating and cooling units use advanced filters to remove elements such as dust, pollen, allergens and other pollutants before sending the air throughout the home.

These modern systems are highly efficient and feature reduced levels of noise and energy use while maintaining premium performance with extended warranty coverage. Energy Star tests, rates and approves top brands that are manufactured specifically for efficiency.

Then, these units are properly installed by trained HVAC (Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning) professionals according to best practices established by leading equipment manufacturers. The result is clean, refreshing air that is affordably maintained at optimum temperatures at all times.

Avoid Moisture Damage

An integral component of an energy efficient home is a comprehensive water protection system. Not only can water damage be caused by outdoor elements such as rain, snow and irrigation — it can also occur from within the house from poorly insulated plumbing pipes and improperly installed water heaters.

All new homes in Bucks County and Montgomery County built by Hallmark feature top moisture damage prevention ratings from Energy Star.

  • Protect from Within

This energy efficient step in the building process offers the peace of mind that comes from knowing that precipitation stays outside, and when it goes from the roofing shingles to the downspouts and finally into the yard, seepage is avoided into the below-ground walls or the foundation — because they have been treated with damp-proof coating.

  • Take Preventive Measures

As plumbing is being installed, each phase of the process includes inspections from an Energy Star professional to ensure that all couplings and plumbing fixtures are securely in place. To prevent broken pipes from freezing temperatures, all conduit below ground and in contact with exterior walls are checked for proper insulation.

Also, a state-of-the-art water heater with modern energy saving features will be approved and tested once installed.

Save Money on Lighting and Appliances

Efficiency-approved fixtures, bulbs and appliances offer immediate value through modern appeal and superior performance. These features also offer long-term benefits by requiring less energy to operate which translates to a reduced carbon footprint and greater savings on monthly bills.

You can customize your new home in Bucks Countywith elegance and style by choosing lights and appliances that speak to your personal sense of design.

  • Flip the Switch

Efficiency certified fixtures and bulbs use up to 90 percent less energy than their traditional counterparts. These components can last 15 times longer than incandescent models while emitting the same amount of light from units that are hum-free.

  • Get More, Use Less

Modernizing your home with Energy Star approved refrigerators, dishwashers, ceiling fans and laundry units allows you to enjoy appliances that outperform older models while reducing energy use by up to 50 percent.

Join the Modern Age

Houses designed to use less energy while providing a superior living experience are the choice for people looking to benefit the environment and save money. Contact us to learn more about moving into a newly customized, Energy Star Certified home.

The Reserve at Highgate in Lehigh County Offers New Home Luxury in a Land of Covered Bridges

Categories: New Homes in Lehigh County, Things to do in Lehigh County | Posted: January 29, 2019

The Pennsylvania countryside is a terrain of wide-open fields, wooded mountains, rolling hills and curving waterways. Years back, the abundance of streams and rivers created the need for 18th and 19th century leaders to build structures that would enable widespread trade and efficient travel. This initiative brought about the covered bridge, and today over 200 of them remain intact across the state. Seven of these picturesque wonders can be found in Lehigh County, and await residents who appreciate landmarks of important historical significance:

The Reserve at Highgate is situated in the heart of an area rich with rural scenery and old-world charm. These new Lehigh County homes offer the luxury of modern amenities, open floor plans and superior construction. Residents of this community who love local history can hop in the car and within easy reach tour the region’s covered bridges. Venturing out for this look into the past can add family days of outdoor fun from creekside walks and picnics to fishing and artist inspiration.

These seven historic icons include:

  • Bogert’s Bridge was built in the mid-18th century. Although closed to vehicular traffic since 1956, it offers visitors the chance to fish from the Little Lehigh Creek and to see a structure made entirely of wood.
  • The Manasses GuthBridge is one of five in the county to cross Jordan Creek. Guests can take in the majesty of the barn-like structure which, like all covered bridges, is there to protect the wooden trusses from weather.
  • Wehr’s Covered Bridge was built in 1962 by Ephraim Sieger and granted enabled access to a stone gristmill on the North bank of Jordan Creek. The area welcomes recreation and fishing while providing an ideal setting for photographers and artists to find new inspirations.
  • Presumed to have been named after local landowners, Rex’s Covered Bridge has remained functional and intact since 1858. Visitors enter through the original stone wing walls (now painted white) and travel upon lengthwise and crosswise planking.
  • The Jacob Geiger family settled this part of Lehigh County in the 1700s after immigrating from Germany. The Geiger Covered Bridge is distinguished by inclined portals on both sides and attached irrigation equipment that is no longer in use.
  • The shortest of its kind in the county, Schlicher’s Covered Bridge was also the last in the region built across Jordan Creek. Here, visitors can watch herds of deer graze on the adjacent Trexler-Lehigh County Game Preserve.
  • Built in 1839, Kreidersville Covered Bridge is one of Pennsylvania’s first and the oldest of its kind in Lehigh County. It offers visitors the chance to enjoy a treasure that was nearly demolished in 1959. The structure features a distinct windowless design, stone and mortar wing walls and a surrounding area meant for quiet recreation.

Make a Distinguished Move

If you cherish history or just enjoy venturing outdoors, consider The Reserve at Highgate, a distinguished new home community in Breinigsville, Pa. Visit us to learn more about these luxury homes surrounded by an area rich in local tradition.

Lehigh County Home Builder Presents the Many Benefits of Open Concept Floor Plans

Categories: Lehigh County New Homes | Posted: November 15, 2018

If you are thinking about moving to a new home in Lehigh County, consider the advantages of an open concept design. The Reserve at Highgate is a Hallmark Homes Group community offering floor plans that feature elegant open layouts with expansive areas of interconnected space, abundant natural lighting and added energy efficiency. The openness allows you and your family to enjoy more quality time, easy communication, enhanced safety and personalized space.

Integrate Your Living Areas

An open floor plan that integrates the kitchen, dining area and great room creates a welcoming atmosphere for family dinners, large gatherings and seasonal celebrations. Imagine a spacious, comfortable setting that provides plenty of room for your guests to visit and relax during holiday festivities, anniversaries, reunions and birthday parties.

Let the Sunshine In

Envision the two-story living room of your new home with gorgeous floor-to-ceiling windows. Combined, the high ceiling and wall of windows provide dramatic light that allows you to bathe in sunshine throughout the day and into the late evening.

Because your new home isn’t confined by walls and small rooms, every inch of your layout affords the advantage of natural light, which is known to relieve stress along with having other medical advantages.

Save on Energy Bills

Plenty of natural light will also help you to save on heating bills in the cold weather. South-facing windows create a greenhouse effect that lets you run your furnace sparingly on sunny days. In the summer, an open concept floor plan saves energy by concentrating cool air into one central location rather than delivering it to many separate rooms.

Embrace Family Togetherness

Moving into a new Hallmark home in Breinigsville can be a fresh chapter in quality time for you, your family and friends. Instead of walls between rooms that separate family members, an open concept floor plan fosters shared experiences and quality interaction.

While preparing a meal, easily share a conversation with someone in the great room. Enjoy the company of your guests without having to walk away from what you are doing. An open concept layout encourages communication and fosters togetherness for everyone.

Enjoy Peace of Mind

Safety in the home is important, especially if children are present. Downstairs, open sight lines can help you keep an eye on indoor play from one end of the room to the other. If you are upstairs, you can peek over the balcony that overlooks the great room and still keep watch of the little ones before they can get into mischief.

Personalize Your Home

Beyond a typical layout with separate rooms, open layouts give you the flexibility to designate spaces to match your individual needs and lifestyle. If you work or create from home, it’s easy to carve out a corner of the living room for office space or a section of the great room for a studio space.

Adding a nook for a homework desk, allocating extra space for a play area, or accommodating an oversize farm table for large family gatherings are all possible within an open layout – without the hassle of moving or knocking down walls. 

As a custom homebuilder in Lehigh County, Hallmark Homes Group will work with you at the Reserve at Highgate to expand or open your space beyond the floor plan’s parameters to add drama or extra room to meet your specific needs. If the home design includes a wall where you would prefer openness, Hallmark will remove it from the floor plan completely or move it to give you the perfect space.

Take the Next Step

From entertaining to day-to day living, the many advantages of open-concept living can enhance your lifestyle. Visit the model home at The Reserve at Highgate to experience first-hand the striking layouts and elegant open concepts – and imagine yourself in your spacious new home.
