New homes with green features-your opportunity to get a home built right from the ground up!

February 6, 2013

Be certain to look for energy efficiency features as they offer you the most benefits. You’ll see many homes that are Energy Star Qualified, a rating given to those built to standards specified by the US Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy. You’ll be assured you’re getting what you pay for since these homes are independently inspected and certified by specialists, not the builder.

You can count on saving up to 30% on your energy bills over a typical new home (and much more compared to an older home) and an equal savings on air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. Enjoy these other benefits as well.

You’ll be more comfortable with a consistent temperature across every room year-round. There’s also a constant supply of fresh, filtered air provided, reducing indoor pollutants, dust, pollen and other allergens.

And there’s a comprehensive water management system that protects roofs, walls and foundations from moisture damage. This could save you lots in maintenance in the long-run.

You’ll also get high quality windows which block out heat and light waves that damage fabrics and other materials so you’ll not have to replace them as often.

Energy Star homes are found in most price ranges, so you can add this to your wish list of home features.
