Home means a lot of things to different people. Your home is where you make memories, rest and recharge, and spend time with friends and loved ones. It’s where you are meant to feel safe and shouldn’t have to worry about your health or well-being.

At Tri Pointe Homes we deliver well-being by design. Green building is our passion, and we’ve been a leader in it for over 20 years. Our commitment to building green is always expanding, and always will, with a steadfast passion for improving the quality of life for our homeowners and the legacy we will all leave on this amazing planet.

That’s why it’s a tremendous honor that our Arizona division recently received the 2021 ENERGY STAR® Market Leader Award for the ninth year. The national award recognizes homebuilders’ outstanding efforts to promote energy-efficient residential construction and help customers experience the quality, comfort, and value that come with living in an ENERGY STAR certified home. For us, it reinforces our company’s commitment to healthy and environmentally responsible business practices while highlighting elements of our innovative programs like LivingSmart®.

If you live in a home by Tri Pointe Homes you know about LivingSmart®, our comprehensive program involving the development, design, construction, and ongoing operation of high-performing homes that results in cost savings for homeowners and a better environment for families like yours. New materials, technologies and features are constantly being incorporated into LivingSmart®, which includes five specific areas of advancement: HealthSmart®, EnergySmart®, EarthSmart®, WaterSmart® and HomeSmart®. Each component is designed to improve your home, your well-being, and the Earth. We use paints, adhesives and sealants that contain little or no VOCs, formaldehyde-free insulation, and efficient air filters to reduce airborne contaminants. Our low-E glass windows help keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter and whole-house fans improve air flow, while high-efficiency tankless water heaters provide water on demand, saving you water.

LivingSmart® is just one example of our commitment to the environment. Empowered by this program, not only is Tri Pointe Homes Arizona proud to have contributed 682 ENERGY STAR certified homes throughout the Greater Phoenix metro in 2020 (and even more in 2021), but we also participate in other third-party green building programs including Indoor airPLUS and LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). Currently, Tri Pointe Homes Arizona is one of the only LEED-certified production builder in the Valley.

With new home neighborhoods and communities located throughout the Valley - from Goodyear and Phoenix to Chandler, Gilbert, Queen Creek and more - Tri Pointe Homes delivers thoughtfully designed homes to a wide range of homebuyers across multiple price points.
