more money in their pock­ets. “Don’t miss out hurry in this

— week­end for the best se­lec­tion and start en­joy­ing your new Mer­itage home to­day,” Hard­ing said.

Adding to the ap­peal and popu lar­ity of Mer­itage Homes is its com­mit­ment as an in­dus­try-lead-ing green builder. The com­pany re­cently in­creased its stan­dards even fur­ther to be­come the only large pub­lic home builder to en­sure ev­ery home it builds meets the En­vi­ron­men­tal Pro­tec­tion Agency’s (EPA) strin­gent En­ergy Star guide­lines.

Mer­itage Homes’ en­ergy-ef­fi­cient and en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly stan­dard fea­tures in­clude Low-E win­dows, pro­gram­mable ther mostats, En­ergy Star ap­pli­ances, low-flow show­er­heads and faucets, low-VOC car­pets, paint and fin-ishes and much more.

These price-in­cluded fea­tures com­bine to make Mer­itage homes 20 per­cent to 30 per­cent more en­ergy-ef­fi­cient than homes built to the cur­rent In­ter­na­tional Res­i­den­tial Code.

In ad­di­tion to low­er­ing util­ity bills and us­ing less nat­u­ral re sources, these homes also pro­vide bet­ter indoor air qual­ity for a health­ier liv­ing en­vi­ron­ment.

With new home neigh­bor-hoods through­out Austin priced from the low $100s to more than $500,000, Mer­itage has new homes in the size, price and lo­ca­tion to match the de­sires of nearly ev­ery home buyer. Plus, ev­ery Mer­itage com­mu­nity of­fers a van ety of ar­chi­tec­tural styles and floor plan de­signs, along with gen­er­ous in­cluded fea­tures and thought­ful neigh­bor­hood plan­ning.

Mer­itage is cur­rently build-ing new home neigh­bor­hoods in Austin, Round Rock, Lakeway, Pflugerville, Manor, Kyle and Cedar Park.
