Planning on building a new home? Make sure it’s as energy-efficient and comfortable as possible! You need ENERGY STAR.
ENERGY STAR certified new homes are designed and built to standards well above most other homes on the market today, delivering great energy efficiency savings compared to typical new homes. A new home that has earned the ENERGY STAR label has undergone a process of inspections, testing and verification to meet strict requirements set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), delivering better quality, better comfort and better durability.

- Access to preferred financing to increase affordability
- Peace of mind (the house is inspected, tested and certified to meet guidelines for energy efficiency)
