Energy Star for New Homes


ENERGY STAR® is a well known and internationally recognized brand and trusted symbol for identifying energy-efficient products, such as appliances. Since 2005, energy efficient homes can also be ENERGY STAR certified.

Why chose an ENERGY STAR® qualified home?

A new home that carries the ENERGY STAR certification is on average 20% more energy efficient than a home built to code, making it more environmentally friendly and saving you money in the long run.

Typical features of an ENERGY STAR qualified home include:

  • Efficient heating and cooling systems that use less energy, reduce indoor humidity and improve the overall comfort of your homeEnergy Star participant logo blue
  • High-performance ENERGY STAR  windows, patio doors and skylights keep the heat in during the winter and out during the summer.
  • Walls and ceilings insulated beyond what is required by building code
  • A variety of ENERGY STAR  products which use less electricity by meeting strict technical specifications
  • A heat or energy recovery ventilation system (HRV or ERV) ensures your home has controlled ventilation
