ENERGY STAR qualified homes can include a variety of “tried and true” energy efficient features that contribute to improved home quality and homeowner comfort. Additional, ENERGY STAR building lowers energy demand thus lowering utility bills and reduces air pollution.
ADDED CONFIDENCE – Homebuying is complex enough without having to know all the details of energy-efficient construction. Instead look for the government backed ENERGY STAR label to easily identify homes that are truly energy efficient. Find the home of your dreams and enjoy peace of mind knowing that it also meets strict energy efficiency guidelines.
Compared with standard homes, ENERGY STAR qualified homes use substantially less energy for heating, cooling, and water heating-delivering $1,200 to $1,400 in annual savings. Additional savings on maintenance can also be substantial. Financing your home purchase using an energy efficient mortgage (EEM) can also lend to savings.
Properly installed energy-efficient improvements deliver better protection against cold, heat, drafts, pollution, and noise. An energy-efficient home helps ensure consistent temperatures between and across rooms improved indoor air quality, and greater durability.
To date, more than 6500 home builders have partnered with EPA to construct nearly 940,000 ENERGY STAR qualified homes. The trend is clear. By choosing a home with the ENERGY STAR label, you can be confident that it will have an increasingly valued feature when the time comes to sell.
