Marcus Hiles exhibits his expertise in analyzing the issue that various building features and materials have on energy loss when planning and building. He points out window placement strategies that gratify a housing development’s orientation and materials — and include fluctuating Texas temperatures — to prevent heat gain in the summer and promote heat retention in the winter. Through the set up of windows with the proper solar coefficient, frames that prevent air leakage, and shading devices, the loss of a home’s heated air and cooled air is decreased. This goes down in fewer carbon emissions and greater cost savings. In order to lessen the transfer of heat from the sun through the roof and into air ducts, Hiles equips the power of radiant roof panels to throw out summer heat away from the home, thus decreasing cooling costs by five to ten percent. He attains greater value by installing air conditioning systems that have a seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) that exceeds government orders. This results in further degradations in carbon and generates over $420,000 in energy savings for those around Western Rim Property Services communities.
