Benefits of Energy Efficient New Homes
- Solar-Ready: Say goodbye to summer energy bills! Many of our communities are solar-ready, which means you can offset your electricity bill by 83-113%! And in the event of a power outage or Public Safety Power Shut Off (PSPS), your solar system and battery backup can reduce your loss of power.
- Energy Star-Rated Appliances: A new home means newer, more energy-efficient appliances, many of which are Energy Star-rated. This means they are designed to consume less energy while you go about your daily usage. Not only will these newer appliances help you save money on your utility bills, but they also add more value to your property!
- Better Insulation: This means better air sealing to ensure that your house is cooler in the summers and warmer in the winter. Plus many of our communities feature energy-efficient heating and cooling systems, which means they’re using 20% less energy, saving you more money on your energy bills.
- Better Windows: New homes also feature multi-pane windows, which also improve your home’s overall energy efficiency. According to an Energy Star study, the average home loses up to 30% of its heating and cooling energy through air leaks in doors and windows. With our energy-efficient new homes, you won’t have to experience this loss of energy and money.
Investing in a new, energy-efficient home will help save your family energy and money, while also helping save the environment. Want to see what those savings could look like for you?
