When you choose a Florida retirement community, you probably expect to have a low heating bill. After all, temperatures stay much warmer year round. Yet the reality is that Florida winters can get chilly, even for those used to colder climes. Plus, the summer heat often sticks around for much of the year, resulting in the need to keep your home cooled. These are just some of the reasons why it’s so important to have a certified green home. Not only will you use less energy throughout the year to keep your home at the ideal temperature, you’ll save money doing it.

Lake Ashton knows that its residents want homes that are energy efficient, but plenty of home buyers also want their homes to be built in a more sustainable manner. That’s why Lake Ashton offers the Environments For Living® Certified Green program. This national program is a comprehensive program that guarantees your home’s green status, certified by an independent third party. Furthermore, Lake Ashton has made the commitment that not only are all of the homes built green, the operations and maintenance are green as well.

Going green doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice, though. The home designs are already award winning and along with their top-notch design features, they also include energy efficiency, improved air quality, and advanced durability and comfort, along with Energy Star-rated appliances.

Every New home built in the Lake Ashton Florida retirement community is guaranteed to be certified green. That means that not only will your home be comfortable, it will also save you money, which is something every retiree will appreciate. For example, the estimated average heating and cooling costs for one of the Ashton models per month is around $42. The money you save on your energy bills can be saved for a rainy day or put toward some new golf clubs or your next big vacation.

With the confidence you get from a certified green home, you can feel secure in saving money for years to come. Contact Lake Ashton today to learn more about their exclusive Environments for Living® program.
