Florida Solar Energy Center Partnership
LifeStyle Homes has built hundreds of SunSmart℠ homes right here in Central Florida that meet the highest standards for energy efficiency. These standards were developed in partnership with the world-class scientists at the Florida Solar Energy Center (FSEC). FSEC is a research institute of the University of Central Florida (UCF), charged by the Florida legislature to develop and approve enhanced energy-efficiency technologies for the people of Florida. As an international leader in energy research and development, FSEC is funded by UCF, the State of Florida, and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).
Our partnership with FSEC enables us to produce superior homes using the best possible combination of high-performance building components and total quality construction practices.
In fact, because of our alliance with FSEC, in early 2010, LifeStyle Homes was the first builder in Brevard County, and the 41st builder in the nation, to meet the tough standards for quality, durability, healthfulness, and energy efficiency set forth by the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Builders Challenge program.
Our partnership with FSEC is on-going. As technology improves and evolves, LifeStyle Homes and FSEC will continue our collaborative research, evaluation, and implementation of cost-effective, cutting-edge energy-efficiency enhancements, ensuring that we are building you the most high-performing home possible.
