Benefits of a Gas Cooktop

Every new American West home comes with a gas cooktop. Why do we choose gas cooktops for our new homes? What are the benefits of a gas cooktop?

Benefits of a gas cooktop: 

Accurate Cooking Temperatures

With a gas cooktop, the heat to the cookware transfers immediately because a gas flame immediately grows larger or smaller with a turn of a dial. With an electric range, the burner has to heat up or cool down.

Evenly Distributed Heat

The flame of a gas cooktop is centralized and allows for even distribution of heat to the cookware, which reduces scorching.

Lower Heat Emissions

Gas cooktops emit less wasted heat than electric cooktops. The gas flame and heat also immediately disappears when turned off which makes them safer. With an electric cooktop, you have to wait for that burner to heat up and cool down.

Faster Cooking Time

Gas heat is immediately available. Turn it on and the flame is ready to use, so it takes less time to cook. You can also adjust temperature moment to moment.

No power? No Problem.

In the event that your electricity goes out, you can still prepare a meal with your gas cooktop.

Saves Money

A gas cooktop will lower your electrical bill. Rates for natural gas tend to be lower than the rates for electricity which saves you money.

Chefs Choose Gas Cooktops

Professional chefs love to cook with gas because they provide greater heat control than electric cooktops. Gas ovens also retain moisture in foods more consistently than their electric counterparts.

Benefits of Vinyl-framed Dual-paned Low E Windows

Living in Las Vegas, we experience both the hot and cold in regards to temperatures.

American West is focused on building energy efficient new homes with sustainable materials and features that matter to you and your family. We are proud to offer homes that demonstrate a commitment to excellence and a respect for the environment.

According to the Department of Energy, energy loss attributed to windows accounts for nearly 25% of the annual heating and cooling costs for any American home. This is one of the reasons why every new American West home includes vinyl-framed dual-paned low-e windows and sliding glass doors.

Benefits of Protective House Wrap in Your American West Home

Every new American West home includes so many eHome features which allows your new home to be an energy saver home. One of these fantastic features is Protective House Wrap. What is Protective House Wrap and what are the benefits of it?

The forces of nature affect everything. A new home should not be built without giving it protection against air and moisture infiltration. Protective House Wrap blocks air transfer through the framed wall, allows airborne moisture vapor to escape without condensing in wall cavities and sheds water that could otherwise get behind the exterior finish.

BENEFITS OF PROTECTIVE HOUSE WRAP:

  • Protection against air and moisture infiltration
  • Improves Energy Efficiency
  • Improves Indoor Air Quality
  • Prevents Moisture Damage
  • High UV Resistance
