What is an ENERGY STAR Home?  

 

The following information is taken from Energy Star’s Homebuyer's brochure.  For further information please contact Jack @ 473-5018 or Tammy @ 361-4517.

 

ENERGY STAR is the government backed symbol for energy efficiency.  A home that earns the ENERGY STAR  is significantly more efficient than a standard home.  By purchasing an ENERGY STAR qualified home, you can have all the features you desire in your new home, plus better performance and lower utility bills – all while helping prevent greenhouse gas emissions.

 

What makes a home ENERGY STAR?

 

  1. TIGHT CONSTRUCTION AND DUCTS

Advanced techniques for sealing holes and cracks in the homes “envelope” and in heating and cooling ducts help reduce drafts, moisture, dust, pollen, pests and noise.  A tightly sealed home improves comfort and indoor air quality while lowering utility and maintenance costs.

 

  1. EFFECTIVE INSULATION

Properly installed and inspected insulation in floors, walls, and attics ensures even temperatures throughout the house, while using less energy.  The result is lower utility cost and a quieter, more comfortable home.

 

  1. EFFICIENT HEATING AND COOLING EQUIPMENT

An energy efficient, properly installed heating and cooling system uses less energy to operate which reduces your utility bills.  This system can also be quieter, reduce indoor humidity, and improve the overall comfort of your home.

 

  1. HIGH PERFORMANCE WINDOWS

Energy-efficient windows employ advanced technologies, such as protective coatings and improved frame assemblies to help keep heat in during the winter and out during the summer.  These windows also block damaging ultraviolet sunlight that can discolor carpet and furnishings.

 

  1. EFFICIENT PRODUCTS

Your home may also be equipped with ENERGY STAR qualified products, lighting fixtures, compact fluorescent bulbs, ventilation fans and appliances that offer additional energy savings.

 

  1. INDEPENDENT TESTING

While it’s easy to claim that homes are energy efficient , ENERGY STAR builder partners back that up with verification by an independent Home Energy Rater.  The Rater conducts onsite inspections and testing to verify the performance of the energy efficiency features in your home.
