Energy Star Home Builder
We are proud to offer new homes that have earned the ENERGY STAR® label. ENERGY STAR® qualified new homes are substantially more energy efficient than homes built to the minimum code requirements. Our ENERGY STAR® qualified new homes are independently verified by a third-party Home Energy Rater to ensure they meet ENERGY STAR® energy efficiency guidelines. These homes are better for the environment and better for you.
Features of our ENERGY STAR® qualified new homes include:
- Effective Insulation – Properly installed insulation that meets or exceeds national code requirements helps achieve even temperatures throughout the house while using less energy. The result is lower utility costs and a quieter, more comfortable home.
- High-Performance Windows – Advanced window coatings help keep heat in during winter and out during summer. They also block damaging ultraviolet sunlight that can discolor carpets and furniture.
- Tight Construction and Tight Ducts – Attention to detail by sealing all holes, cracks, and seams in ducts and construction assemblies helps eliminate drafts, moisture, dust, pests, and pollen. This improves comfort and the quality of indoor air, while lowering maintenance costs.
- Energy-Efficient Heating and Cooling Equipment – More efficient and properly sized heating and cooling systems use less energy, which reduces utility bills. These systems also turn on and off less frequently, removing more humidity and providing better comfort.
