ENERGY STAR homes are better built, more comfortable homes that save you money on your utility bills every month.
Every Northwest ENERGY STAR certified home is built to meet energy efficient guidelines set forth by the Environmental Protection Agency.
From energy efficient windows to advanced heating and cooling systems, ENERGY STAR homes guarantee greater savings, comfort and peace-of-mind.
Simply stated, ENERGY STAR homes are built better for you and the environment.
Better For Your Pocketbook
ENERGY STAR homes are at least 15 percent more efficient than code-built new homes, making them some of the most energy efficient homes on the market today. By using less energy, ENERGY STAR homes cost less to operate, which means more money in your wallet month after month. Combined with potential higher resale values, ENERGY STAR homes represent a smart investment.
Better Heating And Cooling
Enjoy a home with even temperatures throughout the year. Tightly-sealed ductwork, high-performance windows and properly installed insulation make your home more comfortable.
Better For The Environment
The energy used by American homes accounts for 20 percent of total U.S. carbon dioxide CO2emissions. ENERGY STAR certified homes perform better than standard code-built homes and require less energy for heating, cooling and hot water. This amounts to reduced air pollution and a healthier environment for everyone.
Better For You
ENERGY STAR Homes have healthier indoor air, as performance-tested ductwork keeps the air inside your home clean by reducing the possibility of drawing unwanted air from your home’s attic, basement, crawl spaces and garage.
Peace Of Mind
Relax knowing your ENERGY STAR qualified home was tested and certified by an independent third-party to meet ENERGY STAR standards. The ENERGY STAR label is your assurance you have purchased an energy efficient home.
