Each homes core is designed around a vertical shaft that lets air rise and exit the house via motorized windows in the spring and fall months, reheat the house in the winter or be re-cooled in the summer. This is the single most important part of a True Solar Home.
Quality Construction Processes
We start with an engineered steel reinforced concrete slab, pre-assembled wall and roof panels that reduce waste, standardize detailing and provide superior strength.
Our panelized construction keeps the work site clean, safe and professional.
Our homes have obtained City of Austin 5 Star Ratings, National HERS scores of 6 and Monthly Electrical Bills of -$1.44
Home to some of the Greenest Homes in the Nation and
The first TRUE Solar subdivision in Texas
What is a True Solar Home
Unlike a tract home with a few solar panels on it, LCV homes are TRUE Solar homes.
Each home is designed from the ground up to be a Solar home and to maximize solar production for both electric and water heating. We take advantage of the sun to help heat the house or control it during the summer months.
We utilize natural breezes via awning windows and high ceilings.
This is what makes a true solar home.
