The little label with a big message. Better is better.

The blue ENERGY STAR label on a new home means:

ENERGY STAR certified new homes are designed and built to standards well above most other homes on the market today, delivering energy efficiency savings of up to 30 percent when compared to typical new homes. A new home that has earned the ENERGY STAR label has undergone a process of inspections, testing, and verification to meet strict requirements set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), delivering better quality, better comfort, and better durability.

More than one million families across America are already enjoying the quality, comfort, and value of their ENERGY STAR certified homes.
