ENERGY STAR Certification

Purchasing an ENERGY STAR certified new home means joining more than one million families across America who are living in homes designed and built to standards well above most other homes on the market today. Beyond enjoying homes of quality, comfort, and value, ENERGY STAR certified homes help families do their part in reducing our nation's energy consumption, as well as greenhouse gas emissions. See more on COSTS of ENERGY STAR certification.

ENERGY STAR certified homes offer families the promise of peace of mind, enduring quality, wall-to-wall comfort, and proven value, as well as responsible stewardship of our environment.

HERS Ratings

A home energy rating can be compared to the Miles Per Gallon sticker on a vehicle. While the Miles Per Gallon (MPG) sticker rates your vehicle’s fuel efficiency; a home energy rating references the energy efficiency of your home.  Whether you are purchasing a new home or plan to live in your current home for awhile, knowing the Energy Rating or HERS Index of a home can be helpful.
