Features and Benefits of Energy Efficient Home Builders

Tighter Construction (Including Tight Ducts)

Tighter construction reduces overall air infiltration making comfort in your home easier on your HVAC system. It reduces moisture, drafts, noise, and the escape of conditioned air. It also helps keep dust, allergens, and insects out of your home.

Energy-Efficient Heating and Cooling System

According to ENERGY STAR®, heating and/or cooling your home may account for over 50% of your home's total energy use every year. By using high-efficiency heating and cooling equipment, we can significantly reduce the amount of money you spend yearly on keeping your home comfortable. In addition to lower utility bills, efficient heating and cooling systems tend to have less maintenance issues and they run noticeably quieter.

High Performance Windows

ENERGY STAR® rated windows can drastically help lower your heating and cooling costs. Heating and cooling loss through normal house windows can account for up to 50% of energy loss. We'll create a tight seal around all windows to capitalize on every benefit of energy-efficient windows. High-performance windows provide a quieter home, reduce your utility bill, and reduce fading of household items by blocking up to 98% of UV rays.

Improved Insulation

Just like ENERGY STAR® rated windows and a high-efficiency heating and cooling system, improved insulation helps you save money on your utility bill and make your home more comfortable.

Bathroom and Kitchen Fixtures

Energy-Star rated bathroom and kitchen fixtures can help you save a large amount of money year-after-year.

Exterior Colors

The color of your home can contribute to the heat inside it. A lighter exterior color helps homes stay cooler and darker exterior colors help homes retain heat.


Having ceiling fans installed throughout a home helps save money and energy during the summer and the winter.
