Silverleaf Community Preview September 2013

The future is alive and well in Silverleaf and environmentalists and those interested in energy efficiency are taking notice. A 13,000 square foot luxury home has been built using geothermal cooling and heating to greatly reduce the owner’s utility bill. Geothermal heat-pump systems take the energy out of the earth and use it to heat and cool the home. Around the country, geothermal is not new, but the west has been slow to adopt the technology. The Silverleaf home is located about 3 miles east of Pima Road and the Loop 101 and has uninterrupted views of the city below and the majestic McDowell Mountains. This home has large rooms, high ceilings, the finest kitchen appliances available, exposed beams in the ceilings, large windows, a swimming pool and pool house. What you will immediately notice about this home is how quiet it is. There are 10 geothermal wells sunk Silverleaf Communitybeneath the driveway, protected by a 20 -foot high retaining wall from the hillside above. There are 4 cooling towers that resemble standard air conditioning units. This equipment takes advantage of the constant temperature of the Earth, which is about 70 to 75 degrees. Geothermal cooling can cut electric bills by about 57%,  it lasts longer, requires less maintenance and is super efficient. On a 112- degree day in Scottsdale, the home retains a temperature of 78 degrees. All thermostats are controlled remotely from and I-Pad or I-Phone.

This home may be the first to go Geothermal in this area, but many of the homes in the   DC Ranch/Silverleaf area have been built to be energy efficient with such features as solar panels, quality insulation, dual paned windows, treated wood, LED lighting and much more.
