Signature Energy Savings


Dave Hughes builds energy saving luxury custom homes in Conroe, Willis, Montgomery, Tomball, Magnolia and Plantersville. They are some of the most efficient homes in the business. The pinnacle of our energy saving features comes from two sources: the Power-Saver 1200, a high efficiency capacitor which stores and delivers power more efficiently, and EnviroSmart Stabilized Cellulose insulation which has been proven to be as much as 26% more efficient than fiberglass insulation.

The unit was designed with the homeowner in mind lowering electricity usage, lowering electric bills, increasing motor and appliance life and providing surge suppression for the equipment inside your home. Residential customer throughout North America could see a typical savings of 10-25% on the power bill.

EnviroSmart Stabilized Cellulose is superior insulations made primarily from recycled newspaper. Not only is it environmentally smart it is proven to out-perform traditional fiberglass insulation by almost 26%. With efficiency ratings similar to that of foam type insulations, if has distinct advantages to foam. With foam if you have to perform repairs to any wall where foam was used to insulate the wall, reapplying the insulation can be costly and difficult.
