To receive this award, our homes must meet strict guidelines for energy efficiency set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency that require an integrated approach to design combined with tried-and-true best building practices. Upon completion, each home must undergo third-party inspection of energy performance to guarantee that it is at least 30% more efficient than typical new homes built today.
We have taken the next step in building the best home for our customers by using only the best materials for our homes including radiant barrier roof decking, 2 x 6 wall construction rather than 2 x 4, 16 SEER HVAC systems, vinyl Low E windows, R-38 Ceiling insulation and more! All of this so our customers can experience lower utility bills, higher resale value and a greater comfort level knowing their home is protecting the environment.
In the past year, we have contributed to 509 ENERGY STAR certified homes being added to the market. This is equivalent to eliminating the emissions from 181 vehicles, saving 923,835 lbs of coal and planting 713 acres of trees.
