We are proud to announce that we have received the ENERGY STAR Certified Homes Market Leader Award for 2015! This award is recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for our commitment to building quality energy efficient homes. Last year Grand Homes built 328 100% Energy Star Certified homes, which is equivalent to:
- Growing 14,104 tree seedlings for 10 years
- Avoiding the consumption of 1,291 barrels of oil
- Removing 117 passenger vehicles from the road!
Every Grand Home typically produces 15-20% savings over other new homes and as much as 40% energy savings over the average pre-owned home.
Here’s a helpful tip for extra Springtime savings:
- Change the direction of your ceiling fans. This will force cool air down and warm air up, bringing that nice cool breeze down into your rooms where it belongs.

Grand Homes has been recognized as a 2014 ENERGY STAR Certified Homes Market Leader for our commitment to ensure that our homes are energy efficient.
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.
