Why do some rooms feel hotter or colder than others?

Categories: FAQs, Warranty | Posted: November 23, 2016


If you’re feeling a drastic temperature change from room to room, this means the damper in the A/C needs to be balanced. This situation requires help from your warranty team or HVAC subcontractor.


thermostatPlease note that it is recommended that you do not drop your A/C more than 2 degrees at a time to ensure that your unit does not freeze. In warmer months, consider turning on your ceiling fan to help balance out the change in temperature as you lower the thermostat a little at a time. On the contrary, in colder months, investing in a couple space heaters/towers can easily help warm up your home especially the most used areas; bedrooms, and living spaces. This may help suppress the amount on your utility bill by not messing with the heater too much on thermostat and just using these space heaters instead. Remember to turn them off before you leave the home or some brands even come equipped with timers to help in case you forget. You surely don’t want it to become too stuffy!

*Please adhere to the instructions of the space heaters you purchase on the recommended usage time due to safety hazards for your home.

Why use a Preferred Lender?

Categories: Building Process, FAQs | Posted: November 14, 2016

One of the important steps you make when buying or building a home is finding a lender for your mortgage. Although it’s ultimately your choice on whom you select, many building companies such as Manuel Builders partner with a local mortgage company that they trust to become their Preferred Lender. Choosing your building company’s Preferred Lender can come with many benefits.


Up to $2,000 Preferred Lender Incentive

We will give you up to $2,000 towards your closing costs without raising your rate.

Same Day Keys

You get your keys the very same day you sign your closing documents! This may not seem like a big deal, but it can take up to 48 hours to receive your keys if you use a different lender. No need to wait to move into the home of your dreams.

Steller Customer Service

Our preferred lenders are committed to providing a stress-free experience that focuses on communication every step of the way. If you have questions, call or email anytime.

Up Front Approval

Your earnest money and construction deposit are non- refundable. However, our preferred lenders will issue an underwritten approval up front. That means, when you put a down payment on your new home, you can be 100% confident that you can close on your home when it is ready.

Smooth Process

Our lenders are very familiar with the Manuel Builders building process. They strive to make the experience as seamless as possible, so you feel less stress and more excitement about your new home purchase.
