Hiles’ environmental commitment extends far beyond the doors of the residences he builds. His company’s bold tree-planting initiatives increase the volume of a community’s tree canopy to exceed pre-development levels. “Each of the 3,000 trees we planted last year sequesters over 45 pounds of carbon dioxide and pollutants while releasing oxygen,” he states. Through the installation of windows with proper solar coefficient, frames that prevent air leakage, and shading devices, the loss of a home’s heated air and cooled air is even less compared to the previous years. This results in fewer damaging gases for our ozone and notable cost savings. To take advantage of the summer heat, special solar panels are used in order to transform the energy of the Sun into services, lowering our service bills in the process. He serves even further market price by installing cooling systems that have an energy efficiency ratio conditioned by summer or winter, which exceeds government mandates.
