New homes in Arizona
There are a few interesting design features I would like to point out with these new homes in Arizona. Those of us looking to do our part for the environment will be glad to know that these homes are part of the Arizona Public Service (APS) Energy Star Homes® Program. This is a program backed by the federal government that helps protect the environment through energy efficiency. Whether you are concerned about the environment or not, this means lower utility bills. Everyone likes that.

(Take special note of the average monthly utility bill estimates - 3,500 square foot home with a $160 monthly utility bill... nice!) I have personally lived in two different new homes in Arizona and I have never had electric bills that low, and our first home was only 1,500 square feet.
Preserve at Cibola Vista
New Homes in Arizona - School InformationFamilies with school age children living at the Preserve at Cibola Vista are in the Deer Valley Unified School District.
The links below will take you to the individual school's report card which indicates its status under the federal No Child Left Behind Act. Basically these reports can be used as a high level overview as to whether the entire school is performing well or not. Historically the Deer Valley and Peoria Unified Schools Districts the feed into the nearby new home communities in Arizona have been top performers.
- Grade School - West Wing. (Click here if you would like to visit the school's home page.)
- High School - Sandra Day O'Connor (Click here if you would like to visit the school's home page.)
The Preserve at Cibola VistaBelow are some of the highlights, but I also wanted to point out that Centex also reuse some building materials, re-plant plant life disturbed during the building process, xeriscaping (almost a necessity for new homes in Arizona), and Centex also uses locally installed and produced materials whenever possible.
- Rinnai® tankless water heaters (50% more efficient)
- Alpine® Low-E Windows (most thermally efficient glass on the market)
- Solar Board® radiant barrier roof decking (reduce heat gain in the attic)
- Lennox® high energy efficient 14 SEER refrigerated systems (An Energy Star® system can save up to 60% on your cooling bills.)
- R-38 ceiling insulation in attic and above living areas
- Therma Tru® six-panel fiberglass entry doors
- Lennox® natural gas furnaces
There are many more standard features, but these were the ones that stood out in my mind as being different than what other new home builders in the area are offering.

There are only three models for you to view at this new home community, but Centex builds seven different homes at this subdivision.
I wanted to have photos of the homes here so I searched for other new homes in Arizona that Centex built to provide you with the exterior photos of each model.
If a photo is missing it is because I couldn't find this particular model anywhere.
With all the different new homes in Arizona it is tough to go look at all your options, but if you are looking for energy efficient "green" homes then the Preserve at Cibola Vista may be exactly what you are looking for. Out of all of the new homes in Arizona, Centex seems to be the most committed to building energy efficient homes. If you want to see other new homes in Arizona visit our new homes section.
