If you're in the market for a new manufactured home, look for one that has earned the ENERGY STAR label. While they may look the same on the outside, the energy-efficient features built into these homes will deliver real value for you and your family for years to come.
ENERGY STAR certified manufactured homes are designed, manufactured, and installed to meet energy efficiency requirements set by the U.S. EPA. The result is a home that is at least 10% more efficient than a model built to minimum code.
BENEFITS FOR HOMEOWNERS & RENTERS
Lower Utility Bills: Because they use less energy, you can typically save hundreds of dollars each year on energy costs in an ENERGY STAR certified manufactured home.
More Comfort: The energy-efficiency features found in ENERGY STAR certified manufactured homes provide a more comfortable living environment. Your house will stay warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
Energy-Efficient Features: ENERGY STAR gives manufacturers flexibility to choose a package of energy-efficient features that work best for their homes, so long as they deliver at lest 10% savings compared to code. Your ENERGY STAR certified manufactured home may include higher levels of insulation and/or high-efficiency heating or cooling equipment. All ENERGY STAR models come equipped with high performance windows and a programmable thermostat.
Independent Quality Checks: A third-party ‘Quality Assurance Provider’ performs ongoing inspections of manufacturing plants to ensure that the ENERGY STAR certified manufactured homes they produce deliver on their promised features and benefits.
