Landsea Homes, a Newport Beach-based homebuilder, has launched its “Live in Your Element with High Performance Homes Program” in select communities across Arizona and California. The new program features three core pillars including home automation, sustainability and energy savings, which gives homebuyers connected living at their fingertips, providing ease, security and privacy. 

“Sustainability is a defining characteristic for Landsea Homes and the company’s deep respect for the shared environment of the communities created are reflected in every Landsea High Performance Home,” said Mike Forsum, chief operating officer, Landsea Homes. “We take great pride in delivering responsibly designed homes with the highest standards in sustainable building technology so that every detail creates a healthy living environment and enhances the lives of our residents.”

All of Landsea Homes’ High Performance Homes are more connected and convenient than ever. Supported by a partnership with leading technology company Apple®, the homes utilize the Apple HomeKit™ environment to operate all home automation features from one mobile application. The smart home automation features, installed and compatible with Apple HomeKit™ include an Apple TV® media manager device, MeshNet wireless internet throughout the home, entry door locks, thermostat control, garage door opener control, light dimmer switches, doorbell camera pre-wire, and high-touch customer service with an individualized training session.

“Today’s homebuyers seek a balanced life through technology, the ability to stay connected, and the option to be in control all while maintaining a high level of privacy and security. Our High Performance Homes and partnership with Apple provide the features and conveniences people have come to expect,” added Forsum.

To further its sustainability mindset, Landsea Homes includes various features that contribute to healthy living, including appliances that reduce energy waste and tankless water heaters that generate hot water in a faster timeframe. The use of environmentally-conscious building materials and the implementation of waste-reduction programs help preserve and protect the beauty of the natural world, and lessen the impact on the planet.

With the new High Performance Homes, each homebuyer is provided with the following: upgraded roof insulation, upgraded wall insulation, upgraded floor insulation, more efficient mechanical systems, ENERGY STAR® rated appliances and LED lighting. The cost-in-use features lower monthly bills and encourage environmental awareness and stewardship.

For over five years, Landsea Homes has positioned itself as a leader in new-home innovation and technology, committed to sustainable building practices, and conducts a multitude of energy-efficient, sustainable and environmentally-friendly practices that result in a lighter environmental impact, fewer resource consumption and reduced carbon footprint.
