Today everyone is concerned about rising energy costs. By partnering with ENERGY STAR, builders provide their customers a comfortable home that uses less energy. Homeowners appreciate saving money on their energy bills. And builders appreciate fewer callbacks and complaints.
Partnering with ENERGY STAR distinguishes builders as leaders in energy-efficient construction and environmental stewardship, providing valuable peer and public recognition that translates into market advantage because consumers increasingly ask for ENERGY STAR.
As homebuyers across the country become increasingly interested in green building, energy efficiency is the best place for them to start. And the easy way for builders to show that their new homes are energy efficient is with the blue ENERGY STAR logo mark, the government-backed symbol for energy efficiency.
