Home buying is complex enough without having to know all the details of energy-efficient construction. Instead, look for the ENERGY STAR® label to easily identify homes that are truly energy efficient.
Our ENERGY STAR® qualified homes use substantially less energy—delivering $200 to $400 in annual savings. Over the average 7 to 8 years you may live in your home, this adds up to thousands of dollars saved on utility bills.
Enjoy the peace of mind that comes with a low-maintenance home. Tight construction and long-lasting, efficient equipment make our homes more durable, helping to minimize many of the maintenance problems found in typical homes.
Properly installed energy efficiency features deliver better protection against cold, heat, drafts, moisture, pollution, and noise. Our ENERGY STAR® qualified homes help to provide consistent temperatures, improved indoor air quality, and greater durability.
Buying an ENERGY STAR® qualified home is a decision you can be proud of. Energy used in our homes often comes from the burning of fossil fuels at power plants, which contributes to smog, acid rain, and global warming. By using less energy, your new ENERGY STAR® qualified home helps to reduce the amount of air pollution generated.
More than 725,000 ENERGY STAR® qualified homes have been built across the country. By the end of the decade, more than 2 million homes are expected to earn the ENERGY STAR®. The trend is clear. By choosing a home that has earned the ENERGY STAR label, you can be confident that your home will have an increasingly valued feature when the time comes to sell.
