Leading the Way in Energy Efficiency

We hear this phrase being thrown around a lot this day and age, but it has some very real and practical manifestations when it comes to buying a new home. Energy Star homes must meet a rigorous list of requirements in order to qualify as such. Our dedication to meeting these standards is a testament to our mission of constructing efficient, high-performing houses with uniquely modern structures, landscaping, and slick interiors.  An energy efficient home can mean several things, but it has some common characteristics:

  • Windows: They look the same right? So what’s the big deal? Energy efficient windows are usually thicker, as they are double paned. This means that instead of one pane of glass there are two and in between is a space for insulation. They are also constructed out of low- emissivity glass (Low-E glass) which helps block the rays of the sun. Window insulation around the glass is also improved by using a thermally efficient material instead of metal.
  • HVAC system: Much of your energy consumption will go towards heating and cooling your home. Without an effective and well functioning system, you’re likely to see energy bills go up. An Energy Star system means that heating and cooling ducts are well sealed, you have a programmable thermostat, and all other components are working properly without unnecessary energy expenditures.
  • Water Protection System: According to Energy Star standards, newly built homes wearing the Energy Star label are able only to use the best building materials that help prevent water and mold damage.  
  • Lighting: Energy Star certified lighting appliances and fans also contribute to reducing energy costs in new homes. Household appliances make up nearly 11 percent of the average home’s energy use. With advanced lighting, a homeowner has many options to choose from that create different atmospheres while saving on energy costs.
