Recess and P. E. time are always something to look forward to with the onsite amenities offered at Flagstaff Meadows. Grab a ball and your running shoes and head over to the community park and playground to get the wiggles out or take an evening stroll with the family dog on the miles of walking trails throughout. Grab all of the essentials for prepping at home lunches and yummy snacks with the convenience of local grocers like Safeway, Walmart, Sprouts, and Whole Foods Market. You can even take your thriving students on an outdoor field trip while safely social distancing at attractions like the Lowell Observatory, Bearizona Wildlife Park, and the Museum of Northern Arizona.


The new home community at Flagstaff Meadows offers spacious home designs with three to four bedrooms, up to two and a half bathrooms, and a two-car garage. A few of the must-have features include nine-foot ceilings, oil rubbed bronze or brushed nickel trim-hardware, and light fixtures.

by Erin

new construction home

Although the Fall season is approaching, the summer heat is still lingering. The warm weather has been anything but bearable for many while staying inside these last few months. Of course, you can always blast your air conditioning all hours of the day, but there are more efficient ways to help cool your home off without making your electric bill skyrocket in the process. Here are a few ways to heatproof your home during the warmer months.


Focus on your windows


You can install energy-efficient windows to help make a difference in the temperature in your home. You can also install Low-E film to reduce the amount of solar heat gain or try out some blackout curtains to keep the sunlight to a minimum. Closing your blinds between peak hours is also beneficial. Keeping your blinds closed when the sun is out the most helps to reduce the amount of heat that enters your home.


Set your ceiling fans to rotate counterclockwise

Let the air in at night


Take advantage of the cool evenings during the summer and give your a/c a break once the sun goes down. The cooler air will circulate throughout your home without having to use your air conditioning all hours of the night. 


Start grilling dinner outdoors


Using your stove during the warmer months can cause your home to heat up quite a bit. Consider pulling our your trusty grill to prepare family meals outdoors. Give your evening meals a change of scenery and spend some time with the family on the deck as you watch the sunset all while saving energy. 


Use a programmable thermostat


A programmable thermostat can help you to save on your energy costs and lessen the amount of heat you feel in your home. You can program your thermostat to specific temperatures and times so that your home is just right when you come home at the end of the day.


Add foliage to around your home


It may be a good idea to add a few shade trees and bushes around your home to not only add curb appeal but also to assist in keep the smoldering heat from entering through your windows and roof.


Make sure your home is insulated


A well-insulated home can reduce the amount of heat that comes through surfaces like your roof, attic, and walls. This is beneficial during both the warmer months and cooler months to keep the home warm.
