Lower Cost

Compared with standard homes, ENERGY STAR qualified homes use substantially less energy for heating, cooling, and water heating (delivering $200 to $400 in annual savings).

Better Performance

Properly installed energy-efficient improvements deliver better protection against cold, heat, drafts, moisture, pollution, and noise. An energy-efficient home helps to ensure consistent temperatures between and across rooms, improved indoor air quality, and greater durability.

Smart Investment

The trend is clear. By choosing a home with the ENERGY STAR label, you can be confident that it will have an increasingly valued feature when the time comes to sell.

Environmental Protection

Simply put, the less energy we use in our homes, the less air pollution we generate.** Choose green construction from Better Builders and work on reducing your carbon footprint now.
