What Makes Hogan Homes Stand Out?

Benefits of a HYBRID HOME

New Hybrid Insulation System

Our insulation system uses a blend of foam roofing and blown-in wall insulation, ensuring your home is well-sealed against the elements. This keeps it cooler in summer and warmer in winter. Paired with the Honeywell smart thermostat, you gain precise control over your home’s climate, maximizing comfort and efficiency.

LED Lighting

We use ENERGY STAR-certified LED bulbs throughout our homes, both indoors and out. LED lighting is 90% more efficient than traditional bulbs and lasts much longer. This means you’ll save on both energy costs and replacement expenses over time.

Energy Smart Builder

Our homes are designed to be 60% more energy efficient than the average existing home. This means significant savings on your utility bills. For more details about the specific energy-saving features, be sure to check with your sales counselor.

Air Conditioning Systems

Our homes come equipped with Nominal 15 SEER Energy Star qualified Carrier® systems. These air conditioning units are about 30% more efficient than standard systems, providing substantial savings on cooling costs. Plus, they come with a limited 5-year warranty for added peace of mind. These systems are featured in our Terra MarBay RidgeHarbor Heights, and Wandering Oaks communities.

DuPont™ Tyvek® HomeWrap®

This original house wrap uses unique material science to keep air and water out while allowing water vapor to escape. This ensures your home remains dry and well-insulated, contributing to lower energy costs and a more comfortable living environment.

MI Windows – 3540 Single-Hung Window

Our homes feature the 3540 vinyl high-performance single-hung window. They offer exceptional durability, energy efficiency, and convenience with features like a tilt-in sash and warm-edge spacer system. They are standard in our Harbor Heights community.

James Hardie Exterior Trim & Siding

Engineered for the Texas Gulf Coast, this siding comes with a 30-year non-prorated, transferable limited warranty, and the trim has a 15-year warranty. It protects your home exterior from rot, termites, warping, and delamination, ensuring long-term durability and energy efficiency.

Moen Faucets and Showerheads

We use only the best energy-wise Moen kitchen and bath faucets and showerheads, which provide the perfect combination of innovation, features, and lasting value. These fixtures are designed to conserve water without compromising performance, contributing to overall energy efficiency.

Sherwin Williams Paints

Our homes are painted with Sherwin Williams paints, which are known for their exceptional durability and compliance with stringent regulatory standards. These low-emitting paints maintain excellent color, adhesion, and stain resistance, helping to keep your home cooler and more energy-efficient.

PEX Plumbing

Our homes’ water supply systems use PEX (crosslinked polyethylene) piping. This type of piping offers several advantages over metal and rigid plastic pipes, including better resistance to bursting, ease of installation, and improved energy efficiency in water heating.
