FORT WORTH, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Marcus Hiles’ Fort Worth based Western Rim Property Services has led the way in the high-end rental market throughout Texas. By fulfilling the need for luxury townhomes and apartments across the state, his visionary approach has transformed the landscape for the better. Having built upscale units distinguished by their richly designed interiors, chic on-site conveniences and state-of-the-art amenities, he has not only made sophistication eco-friendly, but also synonymous with energy efficiency.
At the start of 2015, the U.S. Department of Energy revised its guidelines, demanding that new residential HVAC systems installed throughout the Southeastern U.S. increase the minimum from 13 to 14 SEER (the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio that defines the overall efficiency of air conditioners). In response to these changes, Marcus Hiles’ Fort Worth company went two steps further, and insisted on only using central AC units operating at 16 SEER. The results were immediately apparent, as residents saved, on average, 20 percent annually when compared to an apartment built five years earlier, and up to 50 percent when measured against a 10-year-old home.
Marcus Hiles is a renowned real estate authority and philanthropist who has spent more than three decades creating properties that embody his unique concept of luxury living for working class Texans. While growing his residential communities, Hiles has personally donated more than 59 acres of parkland to the general public to preserve wildlife habitats and improve public parks, lakes, streams, and greenspace. Hiles remains focused on developing luxurious accommodations that integrate eco-conscious design and scenic beauty, which includes the planting of trees; he plans on reaching his goal of adding 25,000 across suburban Texas over the next decade.
