Every home we build is tested to ensure it stands up to our high quality standards and meet the High Performance Guarantee we promise with every home delivered. Not only are you getting the most home for the least amount of money, you are also getting the most energy efficient home.
Our homes are substantially more energy efficient than homes built to the minimum code requirements. They are independently verified by a third-party Home Energy Rater to ensure they meet our high standards of efficiency. These homes are better for the environment and better for you while reducing your monthly costs and providing better long-term home value.
Benefits of owning one of our high energy-performance new homes include:
Lower Utility Costs
Compared with standard homes, our high performance new homes use substantially less energy for heating, cooling, and hot water heating. Homeowners can expect to save hundreds of dollars annually on their utility bills.
More Comfortable/Quieter Homes
The energy-efficient features of our high performance new homes keep out excessive heat, cold, and noise, and ensure consistent temperatures between and across rooms-making these homes more comfortable to live in.
Helping to Create a Better Future
Our homes are helping our nation reduce our energy needs and building a cleaner environment for the future.
Features of our High Performance new homes include:
Effective Insulation — Properly installed insulation that meets or exceeds national code requirements helps achieve even temperatures throughout the house while using less energy. The result is lower utility costs and a quieter, more comfortable home.
High-Performance Windows — Advanced window coatings help keep heat in during winter and out during summer. They also block damaging ultraviolet sunlight that can discolor carpets and furniture.
Tight Construction and Tight Ducts — Attention to detail by sealing all holes, cracks, and seams in ducts and construction assemblies helps eliminate drafts, moisture, dust, pests, and pollen. This improves comfort and the quality of indoor air, while lowering maintenance costs.
Energy-Efficient Heating and Cooling Equipment — More efficient and properly sized heating and cooling systems use less energy, which reduces utility bills. These systems also turn on and off less frequently, removing more humidity and providing better comfort.
