Meritage Builds Healthier Homes
Meritage Homes is known for emphasizing a commitment to creating better living environments for its homeowners, but in November, the builder went one step further announcing an industry-first expansion aimed at reducing your exposure to airborne containments.
How? Meritage has begun installing MERV-13 filters standard in all its new homes. Unlike conventional filters, the MERV-13 filter is designed to remove smaller particles that can reduce or eliminate a variety of air allergens including dust, lint, pollen, mold and even some bacteria and viruses. The MERV-13 filter is one of the highest filtration standards available for today’s HVAC systems.
This commitment to 100 percent clean air quality has earned the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Indoor airPLUS certification, a labeling program aimed at improving indoor air in new homes by requiring construction and product specifications that reduce exposure to airborne containments.
The new air filters aren’t the only way Meritage helps families live better. The company also uses healthier building components, including low VOC paints/stains, spray foam insulation and sealed insulated ducts.
Meritage offers two collections in Imperial. The 11 designs in the Artisan collection are priced from the $500,0000s. They feature island kitchens, gorgeous primary suites, studies, formal dining rooms and three-car garages.
The stunning Metropolitan collection is priced from the $560,000s. The 13 floor plans include expansive covered patios, formal dining rooms, island kitchens, morning rooms, three-car garages and more.
Visit the Imperial model homes in Imperial today or, if you prefer, you can do all of your home shopping virtually. Either way, you can be sure you are purchasing a healthier home for your family.
